In collaboration with the scientific research labs at the AASTMT, ENACTUS AAST SHERATON came up with a revolutionary solution based on restoring the soil`s ability to fight salinization through utilizing live bacteria mixed with agricultural waste to enliven the inactive bacteria within Egyptian soil. Through multiple national and international collaborations, ENACTUS AAST SHERATON developed a formula with an efficiency of 87% in restoring salt-damaged lands. This mixture was added back to damaged lands to stimulate the inactive bacteria enriching SDG of life on land.
