Local Technology Students Turn Sargasso into Fertilizer
Local university students may have found a new use for the masses of unwanted Sargasso that’s been accumulating along Cancun and Riviera Maya beaches.

A group of technology students from Tech Felipe Carrillo Puerto say that the kelp can be collected from the beaches, composted and used as fertilizer on farms in local villages.

The group has also already been in contact with members from the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA) to manage the arrival of a special machine used to collect Sargasso directly from the water. If approved in coming months, it would be a pilot project.

The director said that right now, they are collecting about 35 tons of seaweed per day, but in the coming weeks, could collect more if they had about 950 workers designated by the Temporary Employment Program. The temporary work program set up to hire laborers to remove the sargasso seaweed from the beaches are paid 68 peso per day.
