Coastal Carbon Capture via Beach Nourishment: Pilot Deployment of Olivine Sands as a Tool for Mitigating Climate Change

Project Information

This project will track and study the movement of olivine sands placed as part of a beach nourishment project, as well as the carbon capture capability of the olivine sands. Olivine sands have great potential to capture and remove carbon dioxide and could be an innovative tool for addressing both climate change through carbon capture and coastal resilience through beach nourishment.
