Sargassum Eco Lumber is a finalists in the category Products & Materials of JEC Startup Booster 2024

"Solving the Sargassum and Plastic Crisis Creating High-Quality Eco Lumber for a Cleaner and Greener Future
The proliferation of Sargassum, has become a global concern, notably affecting countries in the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic coasts of Africa and South America. The issue is compounded by the persistent pollution of polyethylene plastics, primarily MDPE and HDPE, which degrade over decades and release micro plastics that affect marine life and human health. In response, our project, Sargassum Eco Lumber, proposes a novel approach that leverages this environmental challenge by repurposing Sargassum and polyethylene waste into a commercially viable, sustainable building material."
