DRiWATER Plants Two-millionth Tree in Sahara Desert

DRiWATER, manufacturer of pioneering water-conservation technology, today announced the completed planting of 2 million DRiWATER irrigated trees in a single development outside Cairo, Egypt. The company, which ultimately will plant over 17 million trees in the development, also announced it has been invited by the United States Trade and Commerce Agency to lead a trade delegation to Egypt for a water technology exchange. Both milestones reflect the growing interest of water-poor regions, both in the U.S. and abroad, in DRiWATER’s extremely efficient and environmentally safe form of plant irrigation.

“DRiWATER is bringing water-dependent vegetation to regions that formerly could only dream of such growth, and Egypt is leading the way by embracing our technology” said Joseph Paternoster, President and Chief Executive Officer. “There is no greater proof of DRiWATER’s capabilities than to see 2 million trees suddenly bloom in the middle of the Sahara Desert. Whether it is increased potential for economic development, reduced water and labor costs or improved living conditions, the benefits of DRiWATER are revolutionizing the way the world uses water.”

Egypt is using DRiWATER gel to grow eucalyptus, acacia, olive, mesquite, gazira, ficus and orange trees in and around its new Sixth of October city development. The two-millionth tree marks significant progress in the massive project, which calls for DRiWATER to plant and irrigate more than 17 million trees over 35,000 acres.

DRiWATER is also pleased to announce the introduction of Hydroseeding technology and the DRiWATER HYDRO MIX to the Egyptian trade delegates. This technology allows for seeds, water and DRiWATER to be shot from a vehicle hundreds of feet through the air to plant sandy slopes with grass. This technology is destined to alter the way the region grows grass and controls the movement of sand. The DRiWATER technology will provide cost savings and maximum environmental benefit to the country of Egypt.
