Abnormal weather such as cold waves, heavy snow, heat waves, and droughts occur all over the world, and countries around the world are taking steps to prevent the climate crisis. As efforts to reduce carbon emissions and eliminate already emitted carbon have emerged as a challenge, brown algae that absorb carbon are receiving new attention as a solution to carbon neutrality.
Haewon Biotech, a Korean marine biotechnology company, succeeded in mass production by separating and refining fucoidan from brown algae for the first time in Korea. Brown algae absorb a large amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release up to 1/3 of the absorbed carbon in the form of sticky mucus, which is composed of fucoidan.
Fucoidan has a complex structure and is difficult for other organisms such as microorganisms to decompose, so it traps carbon for hundreds to thousands of years. In addition, fucoidan is known as a component that has been found to have various physiological functions such as anticancer action, cholesterol-lowering action, blood pressure lowering action, and antiviral action as well as carbon absorbing function.
Haewon Biotech, a company specializing in marine biotechnology and biomaterials in Korea, supplies fucoidan as a raw material for supplements, virus treatments, medicines, and cosmetics. It not only supplies raw materials but also develops its products using fucoidan and other high-value-added substances extracted from various marine organisms
Meanwhile, Haewon Biotech has developed 'Antiv Fucan', which is used as an antiviral supplement for viruses, and supplied it to 13 countries including the United States, Kazakhstan, Russia, Indonesia, and Russia, establishing itself as a global marine bio company. An official of Haewon Biotech conveyed their ambition to focus on overseas exports and achieve a 'unicorn company' with a market capitalization of 1 trillion within 3 years, and a plan to contribute to carbon neutrality through marine biotechnology and materials.
