Terawet Green Technologies, Inc. (TGT)

TGT´s mission is to provide eco-friendly products and systems that affect the world in a positive and beneficial way in the areas of soil and water, two of the three cornerstones of all life. Terawet was originally founded with the intent of providing a means of reducing world hunger by increasing food production in areas of the world where insufficient capabilities existed to produce adequate food resources. Since the availability of water was a key factor in food production in those regions, the primary goal was to provide a system of water management to allow for food growth in areas where water resources are limited. At present, TGT now offers a complete line of products that promote efficient agricultural water usage, a nano technology for clean drinking water and innovative bio solutions to increase yields of quality crops. In 1996, due to the obvious need for increased food production in the developing world, the company embarked on marketing its products globally.

In 1992, John Peter Abt founded The Terawet Corporation while doing research in the field of super absorbent polymer technology with the intent of utilizing these polymers to better manage water in agricultural systems. Three years of field trials and research followed, eventually culminating in the development of the proprietary TeraGel crystal.

In 1996, due to the obvious need for increased food production in the developing world, the company embarked on marketing its products globally. In the spring of 1998, the company began its domestic marketing efforts starting with the agricultural markets in the mid-western agricultural belt of the United States.

It became apparent that the already established plant growing market could also benefit from this water saving polymer technology. This conclusion led to the development of the liquid polymers, in 2000, providing established plant growers with eco-friendly products that would reduce water usage, increase root development and grow healthy and abundant plants. The goal had been reached to provide eco-friendly products that performed the desired benefits for all growers while still keeping within the framework of “Uniting Science with Nature.”

In 2008, the company would undergo another transition and embarked on the development of other green technologies that would benefit the world in general. In 2011, Terawet Ventures, Inc. has changed the corporate name to reflect their new and broader engagement to Terawet Green Technologies (TGT). In 2015, among the new and innovative technologies being made available included disinfection of drinking water, significant increased drought resistance for plants, customized colloidal micronutrients and colloidal NPK, and soil and water remediation of nuclear waste.

  • Rapid absorption provides for direct benefits from rainfall or brief irrigation schedules.
  • Plants are healthier and grow faster and more abundantly resulting in greater crop yields.
  • Three to Five year longevity of performance. AGRAGEL-(T-400)


Water Biocide Technologies
The World Health Organization recommends that silver in a colloidal state produced by electrolysis of silver electrodes in water as well as colloidal silver in water filtration for removal of bacteria are effective water disinfection methods for safe drinking water which can be adopted in developing countries.

Colloidal silver (a liquid suspension of microscopic silver particles) contains very small biological particles of silver that is so small, it can pass through membranes and even skip past the digestive system in order to be absorbed by the body specially (for maximum effectiveness) taken on an empty stomach. Colloidal silver has been ingested to treat a variety of diseases for thousands of years.

There is no debate, regarding the effectiveness of silver against bacteria and microbe infections since silver and most silver compounds have an antimicrobial effect and silver metal ions are toxic for bacteria, algae, fungi, molds, spores, and viruses even in small concentrations.

In a silver tank, drinking water can be stored for extended period of time while still rendering it safe to drink. Precisely for this reason, water tanks on board cruise ships, military ships, and airplanes are very often stored in a water tank made of metallic silver.

Electrolytic-dissolved silver has been used by the International Space Station as a water disinfecting and anti-microbial agent for the drinking water supply for astronauts Silver has natural antibiotic properties, and as a result, it has been used extensively for medicinal wound dressings to treat external infections, and additionally used as an antiseptic and disinfectant in medical appliances.

SILV Guardis a colloidal silver product that disinfects water at a rate of 30 mL to 1200+ liters of water.
SILV Clean is a silver colloidal product embedded in a near nano amino acid  matrix as a suspension.  It is a superior disinfectant, eliminates bad odors without masking them, and inhibits the growth of all pathogens
