Green & sustainable packaging material from shrimp shells

According to Nature’s research, “every year, some 6 to 8 million tonnes of waste crab, shrimp and lobster shells are produced globally. More often than not, this waste is burned, land filled, dumped at sea or left to get spoiled, creating additional environment and health concerns. It’s great to see Agritecture client Re-Nuble partnering up to curb this wastage from seafood operations, and we hope to see this work accelerate circularity industry-wide.

Re-Nuble is on a mission to upcycle a portion of the nearly 1.3 billion metric tons of food wasted annually. The New York-based company, which produces nutrients from organic waste for indoor farms, is partnering with another circular economy startup, California-based CruzFoam, to curb wastage from seafood operations. 

There is a strong conviction that there was going to be a shift towards more indoor production because of high temperatures, erratic weather patterns, factors that are limiting soil production.

CruzFoam, which recently onboarded actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Ashton Kutcher as investors and board advisors, produces green and sustainable packaging material from shrimp shells that are discarded by the seafood industry. The partnership will enable Re-Nuble to integrate some of this seafood waste into its farm-nutrient production cycle.
