Could seaweed be one of the most effective tools to fight climate change? Perhaps, says Professor Krzysztof Dembek, Co-Founder, SeaForestation, who came on the Breakfast Show, coming on the back of The Liveability Challenge, organised by Eco-Business and held as part of the Ecosperity Week.
Through the challenge, Seaforestation received an investment of S$100,000 each from Quest Ventures and Rumah Group. The start-up also received a S$200,000 investment from Planet Rise. The Philippines-based business is using deep-sea marine permaculture to accelerate the regeneration of seaweed forests, which removes atmospheric carbon and acts as feedstock for bioplastics.
