#AlgeaNova #Large investment #Large capacity
Grogenics and AlgeaNova have partnered in order to offer two large capacity harvester ships. Their ships gather approximately 150 m3 and 300 m3 of fresh sargassum respectively daily, in shallow waters. In addition, AlgeaNova has dams that have been tested and patented. Regularly maintained, the dams environmentally and effectively stop the sargassum from reaching shores. Presently, AlgeaNova has contracts in both the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
