Rigorous protocolsyou can trust.

Isometric protocols are authored by our team of Ph.D. scientists, and set the bar for what suppliers need to measure to demonstrate that carbon dioxide has been removed from the atmosphere and safely stored. In line with the Isometric Standard, all protocols ensure removals are additional, durable, and based on the latest scientific knowledge.

Each protocol is modular, ensuring suppliers can choose the capture, feedstocks, LCA, and storage mechanisms that best describe their process while adhering to our uniformly high and conservative standard.
Enhanced weathering refers to the acceleration of natural chemical weathering, a process in which CO₂ dissolved in rainwater reacts with minerals contained within rocks, partly dissolving them and producing stable bicarbonate ions. When these bicarbonate ions are transported to the oceans via rivers they may be securely stored on long-term timescales. Typically enhanced weathering involves the spreading of crushed reactive rocks or minerals on croplands.

EW modules
Modules are distinct parts of Isometric's protocols, each detailing a portion of a project's carbon removal. This modular structure makes it simple to quickly adjust protocols to appropriately describe the removal mechanism while maintaining their rigour and quality.
EW science experts
The Isometric Science Team consists of internal, full-time scientists, all of whom are subject matter experts in one or more CDR pathways. The scientists developing our enhanced weathering protocols bring in-depth understanding of mineralogy, soil science, and geochemical carbon cycle dynamics.
We collaborate both internally and externally to conduct foundational research, evaluate and develop protocols and communicate the applications of our work.
