The carbon credits are made from methane avoidance. The collection of sargassum seaweed avoids emissions from the decomposition and is used for beneficial products. Create new carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS). Offering a path away from oil and toxic raw materials. It also creates reliable jobs for Mexico and Caribbean communities. The Project activities are the seaweed blooms, fed by nitrogen from agriculture, wash up on beaches and will be collected for drying.
Step one involves squeezing the arsenic out of the seaweed through proprietary filtration. The remaining product can then be used as a biostimulant for crops. Giving them a stronger immune system, greater yield and can protect against droughts. Step two involves a seaweed emulsifier. This method takes the pulp directly from the seaweed and runs it through an emulsifier creating petrochemical based products and displacing the need for palm oil products. Carbonwave is a public benefit corporation and one of the few global companies researching and developing plant-based materials from the most common tropical brown seaweed.
