Zander Corporation

The Zander Corporation was formed in 2002 and is based in the village of Mells near Bath. in the U.K. Approximately 130 miles (209 km) south west of London. It was created to research into a naturally occurring organic material (sapropel) that exhibited unique properties and capabilities. The company has developed commercial opportunities for our products across the world, with an ongoing program that is: Developing drenching, processing and distribution technology, acquiring new licences for raw material drenching, creating production facilities.

The Zander Corporation is committed to the creation of living soils

Our range of products uses a revolutionary and totally organic technology for the restoration of vegetation and cultivation of crops in arid, desertified and saline soils. It also has potential applications for locking up heavy metals salts and organics that have been released into soils, for example crude oil.

The technology has been researched and developed by the Zander Corporation of the United Kingdom and over the past twelve years a number of trials have been undertaken in North Africa, the Gulf States and the Mediterranean Basin to demonstrate its effectiveness. Zander technology is based on natural products that are both environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Zander was formed in 2002 and is committed to the creation of living soils.

  • It is a British company created to research into a naturally occurring organic material that exhibits unique properties and capabilities.

A Unique Material
The unique material used by Zander is a wholly organic silt-like material created by the natural deposition of plant remains over thousands of years and is extracted from freshwater lakes in Northern Europe where it has been immersed in an anaerobic environment for up to 12,000 years.

The Zander Corporation has carried out over 5 years of research and development with this substances and have optimised:

  • Acquisition methods
  • Material processing
  • Transportation

A Natural Solution

A natural waste from one area is being used to improve the soils in another area

  • A sustainable and renewable natural resource in plentiful supply.
  • Used to improve poor soils
  • it’s extraction rejuvenates local lake environments
  • Can also be used to remediate the environment damaged by man.
  • Is not replicable by artificial manufacture.

There are benefits to using this material both for the eco-system it is removed from and the eco-system is it used to improve. Whilst this material is a naturally produced substance it clogs up the lakes it is found in causing damage to the local environment. To keep the lakes healthy it.

  • Huge adsorptive surfaces that increase water retention capacity of sandy soils by 200%-800%
  • When processed, has the ability to release moisture to root systems over a prolonged period
  • Organic nutrient delivery system
  • Salt buffering capability; protecting plant tissue from saline poisoning
  • A matrix providing a natural ‘home’ for beneficial micro-organisms, such as nitrogen-fixing bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi.
  • Stimulates meristems, leading to rapid root development
  • Buffers rising salt residues
  • High level of natural substances beneficial to young plants, such as organic acids and a range of macro elements
  • Rich source of Humates; humic and fulvic acids
  • Improves fertilizer retention and nutrient availability
  • Actively attracts positively charged ions (cations) such as heavy metals
  • Neutralises heavy metals in soils and aqueous solutions
  • Mitigates the migration of radionucleides in soils

This materials unique properties make it ideal as:

A Growth Medium

  • Increased water and nutrient retention - the sponge-like properties and crystalline structure of the material provides an enormous area of adsorptive surfaces.
  • Vigorous plant growth - the material contains numerous beneficial plant compounds, including vitamins, hormones, growth promoters and humates.
  • Matrix for beneficial micro-organisms - These bacteria and fungi e.g. mycorrhizae (produced in-country from indigenous species) provide in effect a secondary root system with up to 700 times the active absorption surface.
  • Longevity - the material continues to be active in the soil for more than 10 years.
  • Salt buffering - the material buffers growing plants from high concentrations of salinity such as those found in arid soils and semi-desertified areas.

For Decontamination

  • For eradicating metal contamination, the material facilitates the exchange of lighter end metal ions for heavier ones.
  • The material absorbs hydrocarbon chains and complex molecules, preventing their migration and promoting biological degradation.
  • Metals such as lead, zinc and cadmium have been captured to a level above 99% and captured ions won’t leach from the medium within a wide range of pH.
  • Sustainable, organic and natural - the material is a sustainable, renewable, natural and wholly organic resource.

The Benefits of Zander

  • Encourages early establishment of trees, shrubs and perennials, even in arid soils.
  • Reduces requirement of irrigation by at least 80%, in many cases over 90%.
  • Enables plants to exploit natural nutrient resources without the need to add chemical fertilizer.
  • Reduces pest and disease problems without spraying.
  • Optimises weight and quality of yield for fruit and vegetable production.
  • Can be used effectively to establish grass swards, golf courses etc
  • ‘One-off’ application only for orchards, forestry and landscaping trees means that very significant savings can be made on maintenance costs
  • Lo-tech system that can be used with existing machinery without significant extra investment
