Global Carbon Reward: Possible Planet aims to prove up incentives for remineralization

Global 4C's vision, as presented by Delton Chen in this video.   Possible Planet wants to partner with Stone House Farm to demonstrate how a unique carbon mitigation incentive might support regenerative agriculture and promote remineralization with rock dust. “The overall project goal is to bring the policy to the attention of policymakers, national governments and political groups, with the aim of giving it fair consideration as a new and relevant climate mitigation policy,” Jonathan Cloud, executive director, said in a letter of intent to farm manager Benjamin Banks-Dobson regarding the collaboration. “Our view is that a ...

New Research Project Considers Rock Dust’s Impact on Such Things as the Nitrogen Cycle

The nitrogen cycle is perhaps one of the least understood and most complicated of nature’s cycles, especially when basalt is added to the system, according to Rock Dust Local founder Tom Vanacore. He adds, this makes it a topic worthy of further investigation. Vanacore notes scientists in the U.S. Midwest have observed changing nitrous oxide levels when NPK and basalt were spread across conventional farms, indicating rock dust does interact with the nitrogen cycle. “They looked at water and saw an increase in nitrate concentrations in the bio-water. This is out in Illinois where there is black dirt and they’ve been farming conventionally ...
