Since 1997, I have been involved in various developing countries including Africa and the Caribbean. Together with my microbiologist partner, Dr. Mohamed Hijri, who holds a MSc in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology, we have been granted an exclusive license with the University of Montreal on the patent-pending {Plant Growth-Promoting Microorganism Combination and Method of Use Thereof}.      

 

This new technology, under the company’s name Quorum Inoculants, has allowed us a fresh and innovative approach to dealing with sargassum seaweed.

In November 2018, exciting development happened on the island of Dominican Republic. Please enjoy my incredible history on how I have come to create a project named SeaGreen.

All my best,
