WHO WE ARE
GOA-VENTURES BV IS A YOUNG COMPANY TO DEVELOP BREAKTHROUGH in SEAWEED VALORIZATION. GOA WANTS TO UPSCALE SEAWEED FOR SERIOUS SUSTAINABLE IMPACT. GOA DELIVERS NEW FUNCTIONAL PROTEIN AND ALTERNATIVE ENERGY IN ONE PROCESS FLOW.
GOA-Ventures and its partners have a clear ambition: to be the best scalable solution for sustainable seaweed valorisation.
The Vision of GOA-ventures: lots of people talk about cascading biomass as the guiding principle for the longer term. We already do it. In a well-orchestrated manner that aims to achieve a balance between social, environmental and economic values.
The Mission of GOA Ventures: our refinery skills and integrated approach should be an inspiring breakthrough for society and science. This way we share prosperity and impact the sustainable needs beyond our business.
GOA-Ventures BV was registered as a start-up and founded by Theo Verleun and supported by industrial project partners as well as by NIOZ.
The main driver for GOA-Ventures BV is to commercialise its patented developments and to ensure that its project partners benefit from these developments. ENECO is eager to commercialise green renewable energy, whereas GASUNIE is aiming for more green gas in its gas transport network. Last but not least, NIOZ looks forward to developing a better understanding of the science of seaweed culture and the opportunities for environmental sound exploitation it offers.
GOA-Ventures was founded by analysing all the seaweed projects in the world to understand if, how and when the seaweed community could make impact in sustainable targets. Surprisingly we thought we could add value to the seaweed community with our own background and skills. To improve and inspire and catalyse the work so far. Every day we are still a bit surprised that adding our value now sums up to various breakthroughs for serious impact.
