MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER TOWARDS THE ENERGY AND ECOLOGY TRANSITION.
Algopack aims to replace petrol-based plastic, partially or totally, by Algae, a renewable biomass which captures 960kg of CO2 per tonne and consumes no water during its development.
The alarming truth is that 500kg of plastic is discharged into the oceans every second and, doubtless, on land at least the same amount is dumped in the wild. In total this represents 10% of the annual production of plastic. To counter this, Algopack has developed products with a positive environmental effect: Sourced from renewable biomass Agricultural land left free to feed the populations Pesticide, insecticide and fertilizer free Support the production of plankton, the foundation of marine life, via their photosynthesis.
Algopack has also developed solutions based on Sargassum algae with the aim of creating value from these brown invasive weeds which wash up on Caribbean coastlines and emit toxic gases that endanger public health.
Algopack has developed a unique, innovative process to transform algae into rigid biomaterials; this process is our contribution to reducing plastics pollution and the health dangers of toxic Sargassum algae.
