2023 2023 Winner | Venture Winner Science Start-ups (Falling Walls Venture)

Kelpi is a world-leading sustainable materials innovation business – harnessing the properties of seaweed to create compostable, marine-safe, low-carbon bio-based packaging. They’re addressing the horrors of marine plastic pollution by replacing fossil fuel-plastics with materials that biodegrade fully, leaving no toxins nor microplastics behind.

Kelpi’s unique coating material is created entirely from seaweed and other plant-based materials. Using these feedstocks, Kelpi develops coatings for paper, card and other substrates to create packaging that in many cases can not only match but even exceed the performance of fossil fuel plastics. What makes Kelpi unique is their material’s ability to provide a long term water barrier, in addition to resistance to moisture, oxygen, acid and grease.
