Unlocking the potential benefits of seaweed

About Us

Sustainability

Farming seaweed requires no arable land, very little or no fresh water and no fertilizers. Seaweed can be grown in tanks on land, or be farmed in the ocean where they not only soak up carbon but can potentially reduce effects of eutrophication.

Innovation

AlgOz is developing a biorefinery approach to extraction, where we plan to utilise all parts of the seaweed rather than just extract one or two components and discard the rest. We are developing novel extraction technologies and new and innovative products for human and animal health as well as biodegradable substitutes for petrochemical based plastics.

We have partnered with the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) and select seaweed growers, who are able to deliver pristine, farmed seaweed for our products.
We are happy to engage with additional seaweed farmers as well companies looking for supply of high quality Australian seaweed products.
