Top-level areas of commercial application:
Rebuilding War Zones: War in arid lands of the Middle East has created an advancing environmental catastrophe of spreading desertification and dust borne toxins.
Seeding over vast scales is a transformative benefit of TerraDerm technology. The engineering of the seed pellet will make it possible for a large agricultural aircraft to reseed as much as a square mile of territory in a single run. While the carbon drawdown capability of arid land is low compared to temperate forests and crop land, it is not insignificant. Successfully reestablishing a healthy desert ecosystem on just 3.5% of the earth's arid lands would draw down enough atmospheric carbon to compensate for the CO2 emissions of the entire global air transport industry. Seeding 25% would draw down as much CO2 as the US emits in a year.
