By using naturally occurring algae, this Solution helps to reduce conventional plastic use.

The mass use of single-use and 'disposal' plastics is causing major issues for land and ocean pollution. This Solution from Eranova aims to providing a sustainable, profitable and ecological alternative to traditional fossil based plastics in the packaging and building industry by turning algae from algal blooms into biodegradable materials. By using natural products, Eranova's Solution reduces plastic use, cleans up water and captures CO2. The Solution offers several types of product suitable for various industries, mainly in construction.
