We’re incredibly honoured to announce that OCEANIUM has been selected as a top 20 finalist for the prestigious Global Change Award 2023 from nearly 3,000 entries coming from 140 countries!
The Global Change Award, initiated by H&M Foundation in 2015, is a global innovation challenge looking for bright minds that can reinvent fashion and change the way it is seen, worn and made with the aim to find, support and scale disruptive ideas that can protect our planet and transform the textile industry into a planet positive one.
It is humbling to be included in such a great list of innovators and to be recognised for the next generation seaweed-based materials that we’re developing to offer viable alternatives to resource-intensive products within the fashion, textiles and packaging industries.
OCEANIUM’s kelp fiber has multiple and diverse potential as a base material for textiles, apparel, packaging and other uses. OCEANIUM’s kelp fiber is one of the outputs of our unique clean, green and proprietary biorefinery technology.
