Seaweed production systems with high-value applications

Marine seaweed is an unexplored resource in Swedish coastal waters. Besides as food ingredients, seaweed biomass is a potential source for fine chemicals, bio-based materials and other attractive applications. In this project we develop new methods for cultivating seaweeds and utilize their many qualities.
