DID YOU KNOW?

Nauvu® is Origin by Ocean’s registered trademark for our biorefinery process and end products. The history of the word “nauvu” is that we couldn’t find a word to describe what we’re doing, so we created one.

“You’re so nauvu!” This means that you are fair towards nature and your peers, you build your knowledge and operate best under the responsibility and commitment needs to take sustainable decisions and actions.
