The Eco-Friendly seaweed handling solution from DESMI is keeping sandy beaches free of sargassum and at the same time removing free-of sand Sargassum for future utilization as base for paper, medicine, fertilizer etc.
The DESMI Sea Turtle Sargassum Project was born in 2015 when a massive amount of Sargassum (Pelagic Sargassum Seaweed) arrived in the Caribbean. Initially it was an investigation and research project developed to find an ecological and cost-effective solution and today it is a complete response system ready for Sargassum abatement.
