Desert Control with Nano Clay

“We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.” – Thomas Fuller

Water is a scarce resource that many of us take for granted, but unfortunately large parts of Earths population are not so lucky. According to NOAA, 2014 was the warmest year on record and 2015 looks like it will be even warmer. Devastating droughts destroy harvests, make soil infertile and allow deserts to increase in size.

It’s time to rejuvenate the planet.

We’ve created NanoClay, which we produce by combining clay and water in a patented mixing process. It’s then spread onto sandy soil and the NanoClay enables the soil to retain water, turning desert into fertile soil.


We’ve been developing NanoClay since 2008 and it’s finally ready to be released. NanoClay is produce by combining clay and water in a patented mixing process.

We bring our patented mixing units to the customer and apply NanoClay directly into the irrigation water and use sprinklers to spread it. The mix sinks into the soil, creating a 40-60 cm deep layer, which retains the water like a sponge. This layer stops water from evaporating and ensures optimal growing conditions for anything you plant in it.

To cultivate sandy soil into fertile land normally takes 7-15 years, we do it in 7 hours. One application lasts a minimum of 5 years.

What’s more is that it’s completely organic and doesn’t use any chemicals.

Benefits of using NanoClay:
– Customers will save between ½ to 2/3 of the water they are currently using to irrigate their land.
– Tests have shown a significant yield increase on anything planted in soil treated with NanoClay and fertilizer.
– Turning desert to green land lowers the surface temperature around 15°C and reduces CO2 emissions by 15-17 tons per hectare.
