In this TEDx Talks, Ole Morten Olesen explains how deserts could be turned into fertile lands using liquid nano clay in just seven hours with additional applications required every five years. Reportedly, if this technology was used on just 1% on "targetable" arid land to reform, it would suck up 26 million tons of C02. Maybe we turn deserts into forests and slow down global warming?
Water is a scarce resource that many of us take for granted, but unfortunately large parts of Earth’s population do not have that luxury. Ole and his innovation team have tried to solve an enormous task: to turn sand into soil. Even more exciting – they believe they have solved the problem!
Listen to Ole talk us through the concept behind turning deserts and sand dunes green. How their technology could change the face of the planet, and solve parts of the global environmental problem. Presenting the game-changing concept at TEDxArendal, he will show you the fascinating images of the green lush results!
Ole Morten has an extensive background in R&D and is focused on "Desert Control" since the companys inception. He has been instrumental in developing and testing Liquid nano clay, which is a tool for turning sand into soil.
