Oshenite® offers positive carbon reduction benefit

Oshenite® oolitic aragonite, which can replace up to 60% of fossil fuel based resins in plastics absorbs significant amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere. During the ocean creation of Oshenite® organic CO2 capture occurs in the ocean mineralization process and the photosynthesis extracts inorganic carbon from the atmosphere. The natural production of 1mm lbs. of Oshenite® has the same carbon reducing effect as planting 92 trees.

The use of Oshenite® represents a significant value-added proposition for sustainable brand owners as it sequesters carbon in significant and substantiated amounts. Example - A company using 1mm lbs. of Oshenite takes 4400 lbs. of carbon out of atmosphere reducing their overall carbon footprint.

Dr. Ramani Narayan, Michigan State University Professor of Chemical Engineering and Material Science is spearheading the USDA classification of Oshenite® as a bio-carbonate has been studying the carbon footprint reduction that comes from bio based resins (including Oshenite®) in products with a bio-renewable carbon.
