natural capital for a richer life

greenSand binds CO2 – Natural Capital for a Richer Life

greenSand is an initiative of The Olivine Group, which was founded by Eddy Wijnker. Eddy discovered the power of olivine when he was in China. NB: this was because a stone fell on his head. That olivine stone led him back to the Netherlands, where Emeritus professor Dr. Olaf Schuiling turned out to be doing research into the properties of olivine. One of these properties was its ability to bind CO2. Scientist Schuiling and entrepreneur Wijnker joined forces to develop the cheapest and simplest way to offset CO2 in the world: combating climate change with the help of Mother Earth.
