From the very inception of CALA Boards, it was clear that the production of our boards must prioritize the protection of humans, the environment, and nature. This journey from idea to the production of the entire CALA Board series wasn't easy, but it was both meaningful and sustainable.
During the development and production of CALA Boards, these five guiding principles have always been our top priority:
Surprisingly, our support comes from an unexpected source: algae, which can be a plague in many oceans around the world, yet also offer valuable help in nature's recovery.
BLOOM's innovative technology takes us a significant step closer to an important goal and our profound motivation: achieving clean water and clean air through material innovation. To support this, all CALA Board decks are produced using a thermoplastic process based on algae.
In 2007, the spark that would become BLOOM was ignited by Ryan Hunt, who embarked on a journey to explore algal technologies, seeking a solution to emerging problems and the escalating challenges posed by environmental pollution. He believed that algae could be harnessed to address harmful phosphorus and ammonia loads found in industrial and agricultural wastewater, triggering algal blooms that strain ecosystems and significantly compromise water quality.
After years of research, he discovered that the protein-rich algae biomass, when subjected to specific heat, pressure, and time, underwent a plasticization process. This marked the beginning of a remarkable development!
