The GOA technology offers a very attractive set of sustainable benefits. Starting with the fact that using seaweeds as stating material put no pressure on the limited available space on land nor on the needs of fresh water to grow the crops. The use of seaweed will help capture both CO2 (close the carbon cycle) and minerals. At the same time, this technology will yield high-quality food and renewable energy. A combination of effects and products such as these leads to a very sustainable approach. It helps avoid the expensive CO2-increasing logistics of water-rich seaweed and promotes the preservation of seaweed.
