The Foundation is intended to spawn an environmental growth stage industry. 

TerraDerm is a Triple Bottom Line technology serving people, planet and profits .

Restoring Soils on a Global Scale

Retarding and Reversing the Spread of Desertification

Stabilizing Landscape Scale Sources of Dust Storms

Recovering arid Environments from the Destructive Effects of War

Passively Capture Atmospheric CO2 While Restoring Carbon into Soil

Reducing Airborne Dust Around Solar Farms

Controlling Wind Erosion of Soil in Dry Land Agriculture

TerraDerm Technology

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.

Retaining Agricultural Soil: Uncontrolled topsoil wind erosion from dry and fallow fields continues to reduce food production capability across the globe.

Reducing Dust Storms: Human health and economic losses occur from increasing dust storm activity yet the loose desert soil they swirl from could be stabilized.

Preserving Solar Farm Efficiency: Dust deposition reduces light intensity on PV farm panels and removing accumulated dust is now the major use of water in these installations.

Retarding Desertification: Nearly half of all agricultural and animal grazing occurs on arid lands. Preventing the desertification of these lands is a global food security issue.

Capturing CO2 Emissions: CO2 emissions from industries like air transport are inherently unavoidable. Using TerraDerm to increase plant activity can pull these emissions back to earth.

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.
