The most important aspect for our project is to succeed through our commitment to act positively on  our territory environmental conditions. 

The question that might arise spontaneously at this point is "how?".

Our intentions may not directly act on the environment but what we want to do is avoiding the waste disposal of algal masses excess by suggesting more and more alternative solutions to this choice. 

So, which are the possible alternatives?

Food

Some types of seaweed are excellent for human consumption, both in terms of taste and for their nutritional properties

Hydrocolloids

The agar agar it is a thickener, also suitable for vegan diets, which is obtained from the processing of some red algae. It is a natural substance capable of replacing the classic gelatin and of completely vegetable origin, as it is precisely a derivative of some algae

Cosmetics

There are many cosmetic products based on the most varied types of seaweed currently on the market. We are mainly talking about products for skin, anti-aging or against cellulite: it is a lately developing micro-sector

Pet food

Some types of seaweed are also excellent for pets feeding

Cattle feeding

Starting from algae, it is possible to produce feed that reduces the greenhouse gas emissions of livestock.

Agriculture

Starting from some types of seaweed, it is possible to produce biostimulants (biological phytostimulants) based on algae

Packaging

Jelloware is a product launched by The way we see the world, an American company: these are flavored and edible glasses made from agar agar which is a derivative of seaweeds

 

Uluu is an Australian startup producing polymers similar to plastic materials and
potentially capable of replacing plastic

 

Notpla is a British startup that launched a new product called Ooho: water bubbles
coated with a film produced from algae that  can be ingested. It is an entirely edible and eco-sustainable packaging made from seaweed

Fuel

The use of algal waste products for the production of biofuels has already been validated: it is the case with agricultural biomass.

 

Certainly, it is the last choice for the algae lifecycle, but it remains another possible use
