March 2021 SWITCH Open Meeting Presenter:

Bob Vasily, Canadian Wollastonite: 

A White Mineral for a Green World.

A brief background about this important mineral and current uses and markets; Exciting new research which demonstrates finely ground wollastonite...

  • can be used as a geoengineering tool that has the potential to rapidly sequester significant amounts of atmospheric CO2 through enhanced inorganic carbon accumulation in agricultural soils;
  • when used as a pH modifier in place of agricultural lime, avoids the creation of 26-44 wt% of CO2 released by the lime;
  • provides plant available silicon which enhances crop resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses and improves crop yields.
