Seaweed doesn’t just taste good, it is an ideal source of organic proteins, sugars, and fibers. It contains specific healthy vitamins, minerals and bioactive ingredients relevant to multiple food applications.
Animals that are fed with seaweed based supplements experience an improvement in welfare. We formulate and market blends for cows, pigs, poultry, horses, dogs & cats.
Seaweed contains many bioactive ingredients that can provide a natural, sustainable and cost effective alternative to the chemical and synthetic ingredients that dominate the human health and sports nutrition industry. Via our company Aquaceuticals Ltd we sell our unique and specific seaweed ingredients and formulations for human health & wellbeing.
Seaweed allows us to create CO2-neutral sustainable biofuels, by replacing the fossil C-element with a renewable C-element. There are several viable technologies to convert seaweed into biofuel, ranging from digestion to hydrothermal liquid fraction. We work with several experts around the world to optimise the way seaweed can be converted into fuel.
Seaweed provides a decomposable and environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuel based fertilizers. Whether applied directly, as an extract, or as a residue from the digestion process, seaweed fertilizer stimulates plant growth. It promotes stronger roots, better heat/cold resistance, and reduces vulnerability for infections to mention but a few.
The demand for plastic is likely to double in the next twenty years, and most plastic is still made from petroleum. As our oceans are poisoned with common plastics, the sea itself offers a natural and very usable alternative. The raw material of seaweed can be released for the production of degradable, recyclable packaging materials, and provide an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional plastics.

Swedish energy producer Vattenfall asked us if they could use our story for their launch in The Netherlands. They portrayed several climate entrepreneurs to support their commitment to become fossil free within one generation. The movie is in Dutch, however YouTube offers the possibility to add subtitles when viewed on a desktop computer.

The Province of South Holland has awarded a subsidy to The Seaweed Company to start developing an integrated seaweed cultivation concept. In cooperation with TWD Engineering and De Nettenfabriek, a first prototype for seeding, growing, and harvesting seaweed will be designed and developed. The first results are expected around April 2019.
