Shells have a high content of calcium carbonate (95%), or limestone. While calcium carbonate obtained from oyster and mussel shells can replace commercially sourced calcium carbonate4, the biomaterial is barely utilised. Our solution will repurpose the biomaterial into a useful resource, thereby avoiding costly and wasteful disposals on landfills. Made by Mussels will produce high-quality seashell powder (of different grain sizes), made from either mussel- or oyster shells. The chemical and physical properties of the shells make our products multipurpose. Today, biomaterial from shells has applications in the paper industry, the pharmaceutical industry and is used as a fertiliser within the agriculture sector. The material…
