Seafields Bailing and Sinking Sargassum

 Seagriculture EU 2024

Seafields is part of a robust network across the private and public sectors sharing lessons and raising awareness of the potential of ocean biomass. The company was launched at the climate change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in 2021 where it unveiled plans to grow, harvest, process, bail and sink the floating seaweed Sargassum in the Atlantic subtropical gyres.

Currently the company is working on solutions to address the 1600+ gigatons of CO₂ in the atmosphere. Seafields wants to scrub those emissions and they have a novel plan, laid out in this video, to make that happen.

In fulfilling their plan, Seafields will sequester gigatons of carbon for the carbon offset market, promote fisheries, and produce alternatives to fossil fuel products with industry partners. All of this toward making a transformative impact on lowering CO₂ emissions and ocean restoration.
