Deforestation & water pollution have significantly increased nutrient runoff. In combination with warming oceans, it’s created the perfect conditions for seaweed blooms suffocating coastal ecosystems and disrupting communities and livelihoods. In the Atlantic and Caribbean, this has prompted the biggest seaweed boom in history.
All latest data is reported as the number of molecules of carbon dioxide divided by the number of all molecules in air carbon, measured at Mauna Loa Observatory, Hawaii.
Our integrated approach to regenerate soils and oceans aims to strengthen their natural ability as Carbon Sinks – all the while restoring their capacity to generate life – as critical habitats, fishing grounds, or farmland.
The ocean is essential for reaching net-zero. By using seaweed, the fastest growing biomass on the planet, we are creating ways to achieve a new path to Gigaton-scale carbon capture.
Our materials not only replace toxic, petroleum-based products, but also create next-generation alternatives - from fertilizers to cosmetics, clothing to packaging - that improve on industry standards while reducing emissions.
This scene in Puerto Morelos, #Mexico plays throughout the Caribbean. #Sargassum is a multi-level threat to those whose livelihoods depend on the sea, like fishing or tourism: it kills fish stocks & corals, gets stuck on the blades of boats, and can be toxic to touch or breathing https://t.co/fzZ0hS89T2
We’re one of the few global companies exploring the benefits of brown seaweed, and the only one with an integrated mass collection network and cascading processing operation ready to address the Sargassum emergency. This means scalable systems capable of supplying to a global economy with measurable positive environmental impact.
