Sodium alginate is a chemical obtained from kelp. After the introduction of a high grade sodium alginate, the production method was enhanced over time. Seaweed fabric is created by employing algae from the sea.
Kelp is used in a variety of goods, including toothpastes, shampoos, salad dressings, puddings, cakes, dairy products, frozen foods, and even medications.
Growers can leverage current aquaculture resources in local areas thanks to kelp farms.AlgiKnit isolates alginate and mixes it with other renewable biopolymers to create yarn that is robust and flexible enough to be knitted by hand or machine and utilised in textile manufacture. Natural pigments can be used to dye the finished product.
The Global Kelp Yarn market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
