Anna Neubeck Receives Funding for a Project on Super Bio-Accelerated Mineral Weathering

Current SCAS Fellow Anna Neubeck and her colleagues have received a grant totalling approx..
35 million SEK for a new interdisciplinary EU project titled “Super Bio-Accelerated Mineral
Weathering: A New Climate Risk Hedging Reactor Technology”.

Researchers from five universities in four countries - Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and
Sweden - are involved in the project, which will study how different kinds of organisms may
cause rocks to weather, a process which in turn reduces the levels of carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere. The study may also increase our understanding of how different organisms exist
and survive in the deep biosphere.

Anna Neubeck is Associate Professor of Geochemistry (Mineralogy, Petrology and Tectonics)
at Uppsala University. During the academic year 2020-21, she is a Natural Sciences Fellow in
residence at the Collegium.
