Cancun to continue working with sargassum company Dianco

Cancun, Q.R. — During the Thursday City Hall meeting, Cancun Mayor Ana Paty Peralta announced the continued agreement for the city’s sargassum deposit. She said that the city has authorized the coordination with Dianco México SAPI de CV, to continue with the alliance strategy that allows the reception, transfer and final destination of the sargassum that is removed from Cancun beaches.

Peralta commented that this will ratify the work established with the company since 2021, taking into account that the municipal government complies daily with the cleaning of beaches through the personnel of Public Services and the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat), which adds up to more than 1,300 tons of macroalgae collected from public beaches so far this year.

She recalled that last week, a tour was made with councilors and municipal authorities to verify the machinery and facilities of Dianco, in which the reception, cleaning, compaction and removal of sargassum sand is done and returned to the beaches and where 100 percent of the seaweed’s organic components are being used.

“What we do is that Zofemat and Public Services collect sargassum on the beaches and transfer it to Dianco, which is located at the entrance of Puerto Morelos, so there are not many kilometers to reach the final disposal site,” she explained.

Peralta commented that this agreement is an extension of the one signed in 2021, since it is the only company in the market offering these needed services.

“This company has already been working with the City Council with an agreement since 2021, and right now, the agreement is ratified.”
