Wayne Sampey Founder and Executive Director: The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group, The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute and Earth Sustaining Sciences Biotechnology.

Wayne Sampey, sustainable management and sustainability management practitioner with extensive experience in the mining, resources, heavy industry, and agricultural industries, a prominent biotechnologist, and specialist in risk and ecological management, founder The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group, The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute, and Earth Sustaining Sciences Biotechnology, continues to advance the Symbiotic Aquatic BioReactor (SABR), the world’s only proven all-natural, economic, environmentally viable solution for process affected 0-14 pH water and soil remediation and rehabilitation additionally provides cost effective organic crop and natural growth developing and advancing sustaining multichannel bionutrification methododgies. As specialists in intensive agriculture, and environmental remediation, rehabilitation and management solutions, The Earth Sustaining Sciences Group, The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute, deliver world-first, a range of natural, cost effective biotechnological processes and systems solving wide ranging previously thought untreatable oppressive environmental risks inclusive of contaminated and depleted lands, soil and water salinity, rogue pH and associated metaliferrous and metalloid effluents. He created and perfected the all-natural Symbiotic Aquatic BioReactor process (SABR) that economically and expediently delivers acid mine, acid rock drainage water and soils solutions (proven remediation from less than 0.5 pH to neutral) and  high pH industrial effluent solutions, soils and clays (proven remediation from greater than 14 pH to neutral), along with the BioSolve, BioStim, BioGrow, BioNute, BioMax, BioActivate, BioBind, BioBoard, and BioSeal systems, a series of natural soil management, dust management, ground and soils formation and stabilisation, tailings and spoils dam sealing and agricultural soil management, fertigation, growth enhancement and management processes. Together with Daemon de Chaeney, he developed the ECOMINING® Operational, Environmental and Societal Assessment and Audit System, an economic, commercial/societal resources management solutions model delivering a new environmental security bonding approach to environmental disturbance. With The Earth Sustaining Sciences Institute, (TESSI) he has created the world’s first all-natural, economic Bioorganic Desalination System SABRBODS, which has delivered 66% salinity reduction in African, Papua New Guinea, and Australian mine waters and up to 95% salinity reduction in high salinity agricultural soils and seawater desalination. He has recently perfected TESSI SymECulture - Symbiotic Ecological Cultivation - High Quality, High Yield,  Reduced Cost, All-Natural Intergenerationally Sustainable Cultivation. Their processes utilise naturally developed biological, biogenic and biosphere benign methods, providing minimum change for maximum benefit solutions and ecosocietally prosperous outcomes. Sampey realised that studies into plants’ hosting of diverse communities of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi, archaea, and protists demonstrated that there was no real understanding of the full effect on the phyllosphere of any given plant by the majority of microbial colonists. Sampey considered that the majority of global research was into rhizospheric effects. Hence he developed SymECulture®, Symbiotic Ecological Cultivation, an ontogenesis research approach, following many years of self-funded dedicated research and development of the process of symbiotically coupling multiple fine-tuned plant biostimulation variables, primarily anchored by tailored biostimulated and matured natural microbiota soil and cultivation medium structuring processes. Matured minimal risk natural microbiota bionutrient enrichment and management processes followed, delivering final success in January 2019. The extension of SymECulture® through Earth Sustaining Sciences Biotechnology’s research into the characteristics of plant rhizosphere and phyllosphere microbial life led to the development of fully enriched phyllosphere advancing processes and therefore improved biopharmaceutical and plant derived nutraceuticals.
