Seaweed is a zero-input crop, requiring nothing but sunlight to grow. It contains an incredible diversity of compounds from which we can make an array of green products - everything from pharmaceuticals to fertilizers to polymers.
Seaweeds are the trees of the ocean. They grow forest-like, anchored to the seafloor, providing a rich habitat for marine life. They cycle nutrients, generate oxygen, and help sequester carbon.
The oceans appears vast, wild and indestructible. But they are under enormous pressure from planetary warming, ocean acidification and over exploitation.
We founded Macro Oceans to harness the restorative power of seaweed. We are developing the technology needed to accelerate the transition to a cleaner, bio-based economy and to help to restore the vitality of our oceans.
