The exhibition shows innovative materials coming from components of marine origin such as algae, diatoms, crustaceans, characterized by a high level of environmental sustainability, as they are biodegradable. The exhibition reveals to visitors the production processes of each material and how they are handled: highly evolved processes in terms of content, scientific and technological knowledge, but also closer to the processes used by nature.

For children, laboratories of recycling allow them to create useful objects from the rubbish found on beaches.
