…better soil, better food, and a better planet.

Remineralization is a Paradigm Shift:
From Scarcity to Abundance
Remineralization is a Paradigm Shift:
From Scarcity to Abundance
A Blueprint for a New Earth
Remineralization utilizes finely ground rock dust and
sea-based minerals to restore soils and forests, produce
higher yields and more nutritious food, and store carbon
in soils to stabilize the climate.

Nutrient Density
On average, you would need to eat
5 apples a day to equal the same
nutrition as 1 apple in 1965.
Now imagine producing as much as
2-4 times the increased yields for
agriculture while at the same time
enhancing the nutrient quality of
the food we eat.
Impacting Health and Healthcare
Glacial rock dust produced 65 bushels of
corn per acre, compared to 25 bushels per
acre from other local farms – with no irrigation.
28% more protein
47% more calcium
57% more phosphorus
60% more magnesium
90% more potassium
Increases in nutrients compared with the
same type of corn grown with chemical
fertilizers nearby.

RTE is Facilitating
the Paradigm Shift and Movement
We facilitate a worldwide movement that
brings together gardeners and farmers,
scientists and policymakers and the public
to create better soils, better food and a better planet.

Small portable biodiesel rock grinder ideal
for community stakeholder projects
Basalts, Granites, Sedimentary rocks are locally available. A small portable rock
crusher is currently being developed that is ideal for community stakeholder
projects.
Using Local Sources of Rock Dust in Cuba
Volcanic eruptions such as
Mount St. Helens fertilize soils
Remineralization of the world's
soils and forests will dramatically
increase carbon sequestration and
is crucial to stabilizing the climate.

We Need to Remineralize on a Larger Scale
Greenland glacial mud
The University of Copenhagen in
Denmark has embarked on a 3-year
project in Greenland to study glacial mud
use for remineralizing depleted soils and
creating food security in the tropical
regions.
