We are a Public Benefit Corporation partnering with companies & institutions to research and develop seaweed into productive and innovative products, starting with biostimulants and natural fertilizers.
Deforestation & water pollution have significantly increased nutrient runoff. In combination with warming oceans, it has normalized the explosion of seeweed blooms suffocating costal ecosystems, and disrupting communities and livelihoods.
Seaweeds grows faster than terrestrial plant, by efficiently absorbing nutrients found at sea, including CO2. That makes it an ultra-sustainable resource that can offset carbon at a global scale.
Even more, our proprietary harvesting and processing technology allows us to turn seaweed into innovative biomaterials for industries like pharma and agriculture, while avoiding or minimizing further release of harmful byproducts.
Our model is built on bringing both economic viability & regenerative potential to carbon offset & ocean de-acidification.
The Rainforests of the Ocean Powered by available water, nutrients and energy, our Marine Permaculture Arrays can vastly improve carbon drawdown compared to traditional land-based methods. Even more, it strenghtens fish stocks and marine habitats by restoring important ecosystems like kelp forests, or even allow them to grow in coasts they couldn’t develop naturally before.

We believe that responsible stewardship of ocean resources will lead to transformative economies, sustainable development, environmental recovery, and resilient communities.
Starting with a biorefinery in Puerto Rico & a processing hub in México, we are focused on island nations & coastal economies that are most at risk of climate collapse & resource dependence.
Marine Permaculture is an important component of resilient, low-carbon approaches to island sustainability, alongside renewable energy and food sovereignty.
As a Public Benefit Corporation, we have a mandate to put our resources to work in restoring the health of the oceans & climate. We're proud to partner with intitutions, citizen movements, governments, and other companies in this.
