Hyperscale ocean restoration for a decarbonised & sustainable future
Canopy Blue is pioneering hyperscale offshore seaweed cultivation to sequester CO2, restore the oceans, regenerate the planet and deliver a carbon neutral replacement for fossil fuels.Learn moreWhy seaweed?
An unprecedented challenge.
An unprecedented opportunity.
Global warming presents a threat to life as we know it.
To avoid catastrophic consequences, we must limit the rise of average global temperatures to 1.5°C and reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Canopy Blue is part of a green economy shift to help decarbonise the world.
We are building the world’s first hyper-scale seaweed cultivation sites to produce carbon-neutral food, biofuels, bioplastics and a vast range of other products.
The carbon neutral raw material harvested from these sites will:
- Play a major role in replacing fossil fuels
- Help decarbonise the global economy by 2050
- Reverse the acidification and eutrophication of the ocean
- Sequester and mitigate the release of gigatonnes of CO2 over the next century.
Seaweed cultivation has a net positive environmental impact and provides opportunities to replace emissions-intensive products with low-carbon food, animal feed, bioplastics and biofuels.
No land or freshwater use
Seaweed cultivation is less resource-intensive, relieving pressure on land and freshwater use.
No need for fertilisers
Seaweed cultivation does not use nutrient pollutants and can help remediate nutrient pollution.
Nutrient and CO2 capture
As seaweed grows it removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and absorbs nutrients from the water column.
Enhancing ocean ecosystems
Ocean forests improve water quality and provide valuable habitat for fish and other marine organisms.
