EMSP business backed by Sky Ocean Ventures

Marine Biotech

Oceanium is a start-up biotech business with an office base in The Moorings co-working suite of The European Marine Science Park. It is developing seaweed-based products to provide sustainable solutions for the increasing demand for marine-safe packaging and plant-based food sources.

Oceanium is still in the research and development phase, but will benefit from the Sky/Innovate UK financing to progress the development of seaweed based products to eliminate plastic waste, mitigate climate change and create employment. It hopes that its business model will not only serve to make the packaging and food industries more resource-efficient, but to create sustainable growth within the seaweed cultivation.
