Welcome to Luminis Water Technologies
Luminis Water Technologies partners with Sea Green to de-risk the seaweed industry
Building Health Baselines in Seaweed Fields
To better support seaweed farmers and coastal livelihoods, we must find ways to deal with challenges like warming water and Ice-Ice disease. Climate changes makes maintaining healthy seaweed fields even more difficult, so Luminis joined up with Sea Green to understand the risks and find solutions.
Together with Sea Green, Luminis seeks to apply genetic information to establish a health baseline that will help farmers. The project will address seaweed farms in Indonesia to figure out why some areas are healthy and why some are not.
This information will help guide the planning for seaweed grow-out sites, predict disease events, and determine the seaweed quality so the farmers can earn top dollar and attract good buyers.

Rolling Out Risk Reports
Insurance companies can assess risk with our Risk Reports and use Risk Assessment tools to underwrite farm operations and protect them from losses. Risk Reports include all pathogens found in the water or seaweed sample. The report also includes blue green algae that can cause harmful algal blooms.

As more and more uses for seaweed is found, the industry faces pressure from climate change and the emergence of Ice Ice disease, which emerges in warmer waters.
