The Enhanced Rock Weathering Demonstrator

Manor Oaks Road/Blagden Street, Sheffield S2 5QZ, UK
The project will explore amending soils with crushed calcium and magnesium rich silicate rocks from waste quarry fines to accelerate natural CO2 sequestration processes. It will provide the first integrated whole system assessment of the science, societal and scalability opportunities and challenges of enhanced rock weathering deployment in UK agriculture. Field sites are the Plynlimon Experimental Catchments (mid-Wales), Rothamsted Research’s North Wyke grassland experimental platform in Devon, and their cutting-edge arable research facility in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.
Country: United Kingdom
Status: In development
Type: Enhanced Rock Weathering
