Welcome to the world of Wilde Weelde on Appeltern . You are currently walking over greenSand Olivine with your shoes. This gray green rock is not only beautiful but also has a very special and unique property. Every kilo of greenSand Olivine permanently clears up a kilo in CO2!
What!?! A stone that cleans up CO2???
You read that right, our stones clean up CO2! And they have more than 4.5 billion years of experience. This is one of the most important ways in which the earth has been able to purify the air from CO2 for billions of years.
How it works?
The operation is quite simple. Each raindrop contains CO2 and as soon as this droplet comes into contact with the olivine rock, the CO2 in the water is converted into nutrients for the plants through a natural reaction. This process is called weathering and can be compared to the rusting of iron. For a full explanation see the video of Kassa Groen:
