ADVANCED SEAWEED MATERIAL SCIENCE
SEAWEED IS THE FUTURE OF PLASTIC
Earth's ocean volume is unimaginably huge, today it remains a massive holder of secrets whose depths and compound ecologies, humans have only begun to comprehend. Below the surface, is a quiet champion, a kind of inverse terrestrial biomass waiting for us.
All across our blue planet, there is an incredible collection of massive aquatic forests, in some cases dwarfing land-based resources. They efficiently capture CO2 in their fronds and stipes forming tremendous carbon sinks that can grow extremely quickly, up to 3 meters per day depending on the species, which is why a seaweed-based product has an environmental advantage vs. petroleum or corn as an input.
We are dedicated to leading the proliferation of seaweed kelp forests into the blue carbon economy.
LOLIWARE INTELLIGENT SEAWEED TECHNOLOGIES (LIST)
LOLIWARE’s technology team is an interdisciplinary pod of material scientists, food technologists, seaweed biologists, engineers, chemists, industrial designers, and futurologists. We combine seaweed intelligence with innovative manufacturing methods to create the plastic-free materials of the future.
We at LOLIWARE have opened a powerful line of communication with kelp to address the plastic crisis we’ve all helped to scale.
For the past five years, LOLIWARE has been decoding the many material configurations and emergent market ecology of sustainable plastic alternatives. The LOLIWARE straw has surfaced as a singular and powerful iteration of what’s possible with a targeted application of this material science.
Seaweed is a highly renewable and regenerative resource and not only delivers a more sustainable product, but a more durable product that can withstand 18+ hours of continuous use that starts to fully degrade once composted.
“THE STRAWS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING – IN ORDER TO HAVE THE GREATEST ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT, LOLIWARE WILL BE RELEASING THE FUTURE OF CUPS, LIDS, UTENSILS AND PACKAGING MADE UP ENTIRELY OF KELP.”
