Lemma 12.8.2. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be an additive category. Let $S$ be a left or right multiplicative system. Then $S^{-1}\mathcal{C}$ is an additive category and the localization functor $Q : \mathcal{C} \to S^{-1}\mathcal{C}$ is additive.

Proof. By Lemma 12.8.1 we see that $S^{-1}\mathcal{C}$ is preadditive and that $Q$ is additive. Recall that the functor $Q$ commutes with finite colimits (resp. finite limits), see Categories, Lemmas 4.27.9 and 4.27.17. We conclude that $S^{-1}\mathcal{C}$ has a zero object and direct sums, see Lemmas 12.3.2 and 12.3.4. $\square$
