Turning Seaweed Into Green Gold in Seychelles

A new factory in Praslin, the second most-populated island in Seychelles has come up with an innovative way of collecting washed up seeweed and turning it in to agricultural fertiliser.

Seaweeds are torn from the sea bed and end up in piles on the beach when the sea in Seychelles is rough especially in the south east monsoon from May to October.

The new factory, located on the man-made Eve island of Praslin, is expected to be operational in two months.

Seaweed is not only an eyesore but is smelly and attracts flies which pose as a nuisance for people, especially beach visitors.
