Seaflex organizes successful Posidonia symposium

At a recent symposium organized by Seaflex, the topic of discussion was how to save the Posidonia plants

Among the invitees were renowned environmentalists shedding more light on the environmental consequences linked to the growing threats facing Posidonia plants around the world. The main concern about the damages caused to the Posidonia is due to the plant’s amazing ability to store carbon dioxide and stop it from entering the atmosphere. The culprit? Chain-based buoy moorings that destroy the seabed when dragging, and the links themselves corroding.

The symposium was also attended by several government officials, as well as scientists from IMEDEA, the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies. To our great delight, the topic of environmental challenges and how to overcome them also created interest in the commercial sector. Seaflex welcomed esteemed guests representing companies and organizations such as Global Yachting Group and Sunseeker, as well as multiple yacht captains, shipyard owners, and many more.

Lars Brandt, CEO of Seaflex, explained the benefits of using systems like the SEAFLEX Buoys and mooring to protect the seabed. The presentation was also aired on Spanish national television and radio. A short clip of the interview can be seen below.

This subject is very dear to us, protecting the seabed is one of the main reasons to choose Seaflex, and one of the main reasons the company exists in the first place. We are extremely happy with the interest and attendance at the symposium, and we will keep fighting to spread information about this around the globe. We also want to extend our gratitude to Chris Ellwood at Viva Verde who helped organize this successfull event.

If you want to learn more about this issue, or why Seaflex is the world-leading provider of sustainable mooring systems, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be more than happy to answer any questions.
