Due to its specific upper layer in olivine, Derbicolor FR Olivine can neutralize the CO2 present in the atmosphere and thus contribute to a better climate. Because of its top layer in olivine the Derbicolor FR Olivine membrane is an ecological solution. When it rains, the CO2 present in the atmosphere will come in contact with the olivine on the roof. On this contact, a chemical reaction will take place, neutralizing the CO2. The residue is made up of silicon dioxide (sand) and magnesium carbonate, 2 products that are harmless to the environment.
1 kg of olivine granulates have the capacity to neutralize 1.25 kg of CO2. The mineral olivine is an iron magnesium silicate and is one of the most common minerals on earth.
