We are a full-service seaweed consulting company specializing in proprietary sustainable land-based seaweed production farms called SSTC System (Synergistic Sustainable Tumble Culture Systems) by founder Tim Visi in 2010; when he had the first land-based sea vegetables farm (that also operated as a bio-remediation system), in Washington State, and most likely in the US.
The SSTC System is a total environmental controlled, sustainable intensive production system that can grow seaweed and freshwater macroalgae species at near daily exponential growth 365-days per year.
Everyone nowadays are working on ways to address climate change, and water eutrophication of the planet. Scientists and engineers are working on developing ways to reduce acidification from the oceans.
They have developed many interesting systems using seaweed to bio-filtrate the impact. These included building large floating seaweed farms, or complex multi-trophic bio-filtrate systems anchored offshore or in coastal waters to address these problems.
So, there are other ways.
Why not address the sources or sites that produce such eutrophic water.
There are sites all over the world. Many countries including the U.S. have many sites that have an impact on water quality. By addressing these sites in everyone’s communities. It would offer a new sustainable way to develop an income while cleaning the environment through water remediation of these nutrients, before they enter the already burdened oceans, coastal waters, estuaries, and freshwater watersheds.
That is what we are interested in.
Offering a different way of cultivating seaweed, by using our proprietary land-based sustainable seaweed production systems called the SSTC System, which can produce sustainable monthly biomass and revenue for long-term business strategies.
SSTC Systems were specifically designed to be integrated into existing aquaculture farms, to remediate concentrated nutrient-rich (eutrophic) water existing from aquaculture facilities. SSTC Systems can also be integrated into any business that produces an organic nutrient-stream (effluent), and is required to have an NPDES permit. SSTC Systems can also be used as a stand-alone system to remediate eutrophic local watersheds or coastal areas. (Please look on the page titled The Research).
Since 2007; we have custom designed sustainable land-based seaweed systems for a variety of sites. From this, we were able to design and develop our proprietary Synergistic Sustainable Tumble Culture (SSTC) System in 2010.
These sustainable systems can be represented as greenhouses, buildings, floating pods, or our proprietary land-based modular portable systems designed in 2012.
We can offer overall assistance with the smallest to the largest project. From the single person wanting a micro-footprint modular farm of 80 or 160 square feet; the business owner who requires raw materials found in seaweed for their product (modular systems up to 424 square-feet), or large multiple greenhouses, buildings, or floating pods for businesses that require thousands or tens of thousands of tons of biomass/month.
