Beazley Designs of the Year Product


Intended as an alternative to single-use plastic films, MarinaTex is made from biological waste from the fishing industry and red algae. The process by which it is created is low tech and low energy.

A durable, compostable material, MarinaTex will biodegrade in less than six weeks in soil without leeching any harmful chemicals and can be consumed safely by wildlife. Its translucent, flexible form makes the material ideal to be used as packaging.

Having begun life as an undergraduate project in 2019, the material is now in the early stages of commercial development.
