- Seaweed is very suitable for biofuel-making methods like anaerobic digestion to make biogas and fermentation to make ethanol.
- In addition, many seaweed species have high carbohydrate and low lignin content that is perfect for making bioethanol.
- Chemical fertilisers are damaging to the health and life of the planet. Seaweed fertilisers are regenerative and have a broad range of benefits to plants beyond plant nutrition.
- They also promote bacterial activity in soil mediums, improve root nutrient intake and have the ability to improve resistance to disease, pests and abiotic plant stress.
- Plastic waste is a huge environmental problem.
- Seaweed bio plastics are 100% biodegradable and can be used to make a wide range of products, an essential replacement as the world transitions away from single use plastic and the pollution of land and ocean that comes with it.
- The ocean covers 71 percent of the earth’s surface, it presently only contributes 2 percent to the world’s food supply on a caloric basis.
- Seaweed is a superfood packed with a wide range of macro and micronutrients, such as fibre, omega-3, iodine and protein.
- Seaweed can contribute directly to food security as a nutrient-rich food source.
- Seaweed cultivation can also contribute to food security by serving as a nursery to forage fisheries, thereby helping to rejuvenate fish stocks.
