About Kelp Blue
At Kelp Blue, our goal is to increase ocean biodiversity by growing giant kelp forests at scale, beginning just off the coast of Lüderitz, Namibia. These giant kelp forests will lock away vast amounts of CO2, boost marine biodiversity and have an enormously positive social impact on communities through job creation and education. Our company growth will be financed by the harvesting, processing and sale of the kelp canopy into environmentally-friendly inputs for multiple industries. website: kelp.blue
