Lisa Stiffler of GeekWire reports on a startup that is turning crab shells into green industrial chemicals.

  • Tidal Vision was launched by a former Alaska fishing boat captain and turns discarded crab shells into a valuable industrial chemical called chitosan.
  • Tidal uses an environmentally friendly process that generates zero waste to create the chitosan.
  • The company has a production site in South Carolina and plans to open another facility in Texas next year.

“The material is something of a wonder ingredient and can be used in water purification, to preserve produce, to promote plant growth, as a flame retardant in fabrics, and in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It offers a safe alternative to toxic chemicals, metals, petroleum products and pesticides used in industry.”
