Working on solutions
Did you know that Kaiso is working on making natural plastic products from, among other things, macro algae starch? Over 70% of the earth’s oxygen comes from sea algae.
By using these resources for the benefit of petroleum in our plastic products, we can increase demand and thus also the production of macroalgae worldwide. This means that in the long term we can contribute to lowering the CO2 level in the atmosphere and helping to combat the environmental challenges we are facing.
In addition, starch from algae is degradable and does not leave harmful chemicals or microplastics. Win-win for everyone
Kaiso sustainable solutions was founded by five students from the University of Southeast Norway. Our vision is to reduce plastic production made from non-renewable sources like oil and gas. We want to make sure that plastic which ends up in the ocean do not harm wildlife and ecosystems. To do that we are working on finding new sustainable solutions to plastic by using renewable resources which doesn’t harm the environment through production or during its lifespan.
Creating products of the future
