Our Technology

For decades our multi-disciplinary group has been researching and experimenting with fire-based plant signaling and communications in an effort to increase plant size and production through a reorganization of photosynthetic energy.  We began with the understanding that the natural role of fire in the evolutionary cycle had been effectively eliminated through modern agricultural and fire suppression mandates and looked at safe ways to reintroduce it.[1]  While our initial goal of statistically significant shoot growth/production is in progress, we have succeeded in achieving a dramatic and consistent increase in overall plant net primary production (NPP) – in root systems.  After thousands of assays, our treated plants’ root systems are on average 72% larger than the root systems of non-treated control groups.  Every ton of additional dry root biomass resulting from the use of our technology equates to 2.6 Barrel of Oil Equivalents (BOEs).  This resulted as an archival byproduct of our original goal, and we have twenty-five years of assay and test data available for verification. 

Our fire signaling technology is a completely new form of pyrovoltaic energy transfer that is also a new form of alternative green energy.  The group has consisted of top scientific and technical professionals that have a passion for environmental technologies and understand the interrelationship between biomass NPP, fire and soils, the carbon cycle, and the impact they have on in-ground water storage and percolation.[2]    Some in the group are focused on carbon sequestration and climate change, while others are focused on agricultural production.  Woods Hole/MIT researchers have stated that if the carbon removed from U.S. soils through agricultural production is replaced, it would offset all the fossil fuel carbon emissions for the past 80 years.[3]  Our technology can effectively replace that carbon loss.

For that reason, the team determined that we have a moral imperative to introduce our technology in its current state since the “by-product” root growth aspect of our technology positively addresses the following: 1) carbon sequestration; 2) water retention and percolation; 3) human health/food production; 4) biomass energy production; 5) natural toxin remediation; and 6) weather cooling through soil moisture enthalpy.  To better understand how our technology impacts the water and carbon cycles please click HERE

We have enough initial production to currently treat thousands of acres of land and estimate that of the 2B total acres of land in the U.S., most can be treated.  This is a disruptive technology because it is based on a new fire-to-plant communication science, and because it works.   We believe our technology will be considered the standard of care.
