“Algae can help us aim at a circular economy in terms of raw materials, logistics, processes and applications. We can use our raw material to a maximun and reduce waste to a minimun while providing natural alternative solutions for a sustainable food production”, Ms Pi Nyvall, Olmix Group’s Scientific Director, explained.
Considered to be a 100% natural resource, algae play a vital role in the global carbon cycle, being also a tool with low risk of toxicity or ecotoxicity. These special properties made them the perfect solution to be used as the core to develop sustainable and respectful strategies for animal and plant care.
“We do know that seaweeds are the key player to move towards a sustainable value chain. To collect this sustainable resource we have developed a novel harvest tool, a crawler tractor that has less impact than a footprint on the shore. In addition our processing method is renowned for its efficient use of the raw material via the multiproduct biorefinery, which results in natural products for animals and plants that allow us to reduce the use of antibiotics and pesticides”, Ms Nyvall said
