Decarbonization Avenue : C2V - CO2 to Value

In fact

An aquaculture venture with unprecedented carbon capture goals

Can growing seaweeds on a large scale be an effective carbon capture mechanism

Kelp Blue thinks so.

Kelp Blue is aiming to establish a series of kelp farms off the coast of Namibia which, by 2050, will be capable of absorbing more CO2 than is produced by the Netherlands each year.

Kelp thus produced will be sold both as a fresh and dried or milled product to farmers as feed and fertiliser and processed into biostimulants. The pulp that remains can be used as an animal feed supplement. We will be exploring additional promising applications including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, textiles and bioplastics.
