Fresh water is a renewable resource, yet the world’s supply of clean, fresh water is under increasing demand for human activities. The world has an estimated 1.34 billion cubic kilometers of water, but 96.5% of it is salty. Almost 70% of fresh water can be found in the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland. Less than 1% of this water on Earth is accessible to humans, the rest is contained in soil moisture or deep underground. Accessible freshwater is located in lakes, rivers, reservoirs and shallow underground sources. Rainwater and snowfall do very little to replenish these stocks of freshwater.
The amount of available freshwater supply in some regions is decreasing because of:
- Climate change, which has caused receding glaciers, reduced stream and river flow, and shrinking lakes;
- Contamination of water by humanand industrial wastes;
- Over use of non-renewable groundwater aquifers. Many aquifers have been over-pumped and are not recharging quickly. Although the total freshwater supply is not used up, much has become polluted, salted, unsuitable or otherwise unavailable for drinking, industryand agriculture.
Water demand already exceeds supply in many parts of the world, and as the world population continues to rise, many more areas are expected to experience this imbalance in the near future.
Agriculture represents 70% of freshwater use worldwide.
Agriculture, industrialization and urbanization all serve to increase water consumption.
The highest total annual consumption of water comes from India, China and the United States, countries with large populations, extensive agricultural irrigation, and demand for food.
India has 20 percent of the Earth’s population, but only four percent of its water. Water tables are dropping rapidly in some of India’s main agricultural areas. The Indus and Ganges rivers are tapped so heavily that, except in rare wet years, they no longer reach the sea.
India has the largest water withdrawal out of all the countries in the world. Eighty-six percent of that water supports agriculture.
We provide a solution for this problem with GeoRevive, which is a German product manufactured in Bahrain.
GeoRevive, is an innovative soil conditioner, water retainer which aims to eliminate water wastage and improve overall plant development.
It has been proven by study, research and implementation that the application of GeoRevive in contemporary agricultural and plant cultivation practices reduces water consumption by up to 90% and fertiliser usage by up to 70%. This brings a revolution into the process of making our planet evergreen, simultaneously offering farmers, gardeners, landscapers, organizations potential economical growth and options to multiply the project output. It has also been proven that GeoRevive promotes strong plant development and immunity, ensuring 100% plant survival rate. The product is all more viable because strong plants with high survival rate and immunity help to decrease the usage of pesticide, thereby creating a cleaner and healthier environment.
GeoRevive is a highly efficient soil conditioner that boosts both nutrient and water availability to the plants. The multi-capillary structured product is like a super-absorbent sponge that sucks in the given water, preventing it from draining away and concentrating it where the tree can access it. GeoRevive holds 2820 % its weight in water, retaining moisture in the soil and reducing water consumption. This unique capacity of the product creates the opportunity to convert arid wastelands into productive green lands.
GeoRevive is a completely eco-friendly, non-toxic and bio-degradable product which after a one-time application demineralizes in 5-8 years.
Unique characteristics and qualities of the product:
- A multi component capillary-structured product, which is formed in lumps of different sizes
- 1 m³ of GeoRevive stores approximately 800 liters of water
- Steady volume of water retained after initial absorption
- Reduced water evaporation and salt accumulation
- Nutrients and organisms are retained in the soil, reduction of fertilizers
- The microbiology of the soil is supported
- Increased humus formation from improved plant growth
- Improved soil quality, Demineralization happens in 5-8 years
GeoRevive, has been used in countless projects in Bahrain, Dubai, Qatar, Oman, Portugal and Australia. The product has been successfully tested at Qaboos University in Muscat, Oman and Murdoch University in Perth WA, Australia. Results from the extremely arid regions of the Middle East were outstanding: water requirements were cut by up to 90% and fertiliser requirements by 70%.
