Founded in January 2020, Carbonwave (previously C-Combinator) is the world's leading developer of ultra-regenerative, plant-based, advanced biomaterials from seaweed. It transforms Sargassum seaweed, a resource long considered waste and that doesn’t need land or other typical aids to grow, into biomaterials which replace derivatives from oil and other harmful industry inputs. Carbonwave is part of a new wave of companies that are building the next-generation economies that will heal the planet through materials that regeneratively sourced from our oceans.
Carbonwave is focused on collecting, processing and growing seaweed profitably at scale. We are marketing seaweed extracts to the agricultural industry as organic fertilizers and biostimulants; plant-based (vegan) leathers for fashion and interiors; and broad-spectrum emulsifiers with a wide range of applications across cosmetics and skin-care products.
