Teraderm is a low cost, organic, bio-engineered membrane developed to restore health to the earth. It’s a sustainability technology set to compensate for harm done to the planet as a result of industrial activities by humans. Teraderm has two main functions: (1) Reflect solar radiation away from the earth (helping to reverse global warming), reducing surface temperature and altering harmful near-surface gas conditions. (2) Increase crop yields by binding soil and root systems and retaining water for longer. This technology is most useful in reclaiming previously fertile land lost to dessertification and is expected to receive government support, particularly in developing countries where soil conditions are often poor. The technology on which Teraderm is based has been in development for more than 26 years and is the brainchild of Norwegian scientist Torfinn Johnsen. Teraderm is the first go-to-market product of this technology and is aimed primarily at the fertiliser industry where it’s been proven to outperform all existing industrial scale competitors. The name says it all. Teraderm is derived from a combination of ‘terra’, which is latin for ‘earth’ and ‘derma’, which means ‘skin’ in Greek. The name translates literally into ‘earthskin’, which is a metaphor related to the protective and health-mediating functions of the largest organ of the human body, skin
