Norwegian Startup Created Solution That Turns Desert Soil into Fertile Soil

According to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, “natural resource depletion and adverse impacts of environmental degradation, including desertification, drought, land degradation, fresh water scarcity and loss of biodiversity, add to and exacerbate the list of challenges which humanity faces.”

Liquid NanoClay is a product that turns desert areas into fertile land. Liquid NanoClay is being produced by combining clay and water in a patented mixing process. The mix is applied directly into the irrigation system and is spread with the help of sprinklers. In 7 hours mix fully sinks into the soil, creating a 40-60 cm deep layer which retains water and prevents it from evaporating.
