ONCRA certified

Permanent Clearance

Zo ruimen we jouw CO2 op

Voor elke ton CO₂ die jij compenseert strooien wij 1 ton greenSand uit. Wij ruimen jouw CO₂ permanent op door het op een natuurlijke wijze vast te leggen met Olivijn rijk gesteentes. Dit process heet verwering en de werking is zowel door de wetenschap als door de aarde zelf bewezen.

Jouw certificaat behoudt zijn waarde

Wanneer je via greenSand CO₂ compenseert dan ben je er zeker van dat de door jouw compenseerde CO₂ ook daadwerkelijkheid tot in de eeuwigheid word vastgelegd. In tegenstelling tot CO₂ compenseren via bomen, kan je bij ons er zeker van zijn dat de door jouw gecompenseerde CO₂ nooit meer in rook opgaat.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are my CO₂ emissions compensated?

For every ton of CO₂ that you compensate through us, we will scatter 1 ton of greenSand Olivine. In this way you directly helped to create more surface area for the olivine rock over the earth.

Where is my CO₂ cleaned up?

The weight you compensate is scattered in greenSand olivine at our scatter locations. The spreading locations are open to the public. Think of a schoolyard, a municipal park and the like. Companies and private individuals cannot become a scatter location.

How long does the CO₂ stay cleared?

The weight of CO₂ that you compensate is permanently fixed by the rock. The only way the CO₂ is released again is when the rock is heated to 1600 degrees.

What is the difference with trees?

The compensating concept is the same, the difference is in the CO₂ capture. When you plant through trees you compensate CO₂. Then you will receive a certificate for the CO₂ which is stored in the wood of the trees. However, the CO₂ capture of boom is temporary. The certificate you receive therefore loses its value during a forest fire or when the tree dies.

What is the price based on?

The price per ton CO₂ is based on supply and demand in the market. In addition, the quality and the recording period also play a role. In 2017, the price was still below €10 for a tonne of CO₂, today the price is around €90 for a tonne of CO₂. The current price can be seen on the German trading platform EEX

Waarom CO2 compenseren?

Dankzij de mensheid is de CO₂ cyclus van de aarde momenteel uit balans. Er word te veel CO₂ uitgestoten dan dat er weer kan worden opgenomen. Door je eigen CO₂ uitstoot of een gedeelte hiervan te compenseren, draag je direct bij aan het weer terug in balans brengen van de CO₂ cyclus.

Why compensate CO₂ at greenSand?

With greenSand you are sure that the CO₂ calculated by you is actually cleaned up. Olivine's weathering process is the earth's only natural and permanent solution for removing CO₂. If you choose greenSand, you choose a compensation certificate that retains its value.

"Let the earth help us save the earth"

Every kilo of greenSand clears up 1 kilo of CO₂

The mineral Olivine weathers (rust) with the CO₂ in the rainwater. It has been proven in the lab that 1 kg of greenSand Olivine captures 1 kg of CO₂. However, we are convinced that things go even faster in real nature. By using greenSand Olivine as a replacement in as many applications worldwide as possible, we can already permanently capture a large part of the CO₂ surplus in a natural way.
