A group of young entrepreneurs consolidated a project that converts the algae accumulated on the beaches into 100% organic fertilizer for agroindustrial and domestic use, which has been already positively positioned in the local and national markets.
The company’s trade name is Salgax Biotecnología Marina Aplicada (Applied Marine Biotechnology) which, after conducting several attempts, created a seaweed fertilizer that can be used for the best development in several species considered important for its high commercial value, as can be used for habanero pepper, tomato, sunflower, coriander, Persian lemon, aloe vera, melon, basil, papaya, ornamental plants and many others.
The administrative director of the project, Guadalupe Dayré Catzín, explained the fertilizer increases the thickness and height of the plant stem, allowing a greater leaf coverage, early blooming, more root growth, as well as larger and better quality fruits.
The process manager of the company, Mauricio Gómez, said that the algae is obtained from the municipalities in the west coastal area, since the type of seaweed that accumulates in those beaches features the appropiate conditions to be turned into fertilizer.
“We cannot use any kind of algae. There are some that have high levels of contamination and it is the west coast that currently has the right conditions for the process of transformation into liquid fertilizers. We are currently collecting on the shores of Sisal” the entrepreneur said.
After the collection, the algae undergoes a desalination process, is introduced in recyclable plastic bottles and finally marketed.
Dayré Catzín recalled that last year, they won the first place of the contest called Entrepreneur Challenge Yucatan, so they received an economic support of $315,000 pesos that allowed them to start a less artisanal and more industrialized packaging process.
