LOLIWARE® Inc. is an award-winning materials tech company focused on replacing single-use plastics with seaweed-derived alternatives that are Designed to Disappear®. As the first company worldwide to truly scale seaweed as a viable replacement for plastic, LOLIWARE’s innovative SEA Technology®, (Seaweed-derived, Emission-avoiding, Alternative to plastic) represents a new category of sustainable, regenerative resins derived from seaweed – a bio-renewable and carbon-capturing input. The first product launch in the category is the LOLIWARE® drinking straw. SEA Technology® resins are currently being applied to single-use items/packaging such as straws, cold cups, utensils, and films to advance our planet towards a plastic-free, decarbonized future.

Use Cases:

  • By harnessing the power of seaweed to replace plastic at scale, LOLIWARE is tapping into its potential to regenerate our ocean and decarbonize our planet. After half a decade of development, LOLIWARE has cracked the code on seaweed.

  • Sea Technology is the first-ever seaweed-based pellet that is a 1:1 replacement for petroleum-based plastic pellets, most commonly used in plastics manufacturing. This means their material is uniquely compatible with existing manufacturing equipment, providing a cost-effective way to replace plastic at a scale that’s good for both people and the planet.

  • LOLIWARE will soon be partnering with the 2nd largest resin distributor worldwide, making the technology available globally to thousands of manufacturers in 2023.
