New UC Davis center paves the way for rock dust research

Faculty at the University of California are carrying out several remineralization studies across multiple campuses that they hope will deliver a more holistic understanding of California soils’ carbon storage potential.

UC Davis plans to explore financial impacts, scalability, and the varying levels of benefit for different climates and soils. Their work aims to map out the “Yellow Brick Road” piece by piece rather than merely claiming that the road exists in the first place. With this approach, researchers can transcend the scientific community’s current understanding of rock dust to manifest a plan for realistic implementation in the future.
