Nanomaterial overcomes weather woes in bid to save scorched land

Abstract:
A nanomaterial-based compound designed to reclaim land lost to forest fires is getting its first major workout in challenging weather. A fire caused by lightning last month scorched more than 5,000 acres of forest and the Taos Pueblo Native American tribe's Encebado Mountain. The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) selected Sequoia's patent-pending nanoengineered organic material to drop on 1,400 acres of charred land. The agency hopes the material will bind to the soil to protect it from erosion and stimulate growth.
