What we do

The seaweed cultivation roomThe aim of this project is to develop novel strains for cultivating seaweeds in Sweden, and sustainable techniques for extracting seaweed-based high value compounds. The specific goals are to:

  • develop environmentally sound cultivation methods, including techniques for continuous sporeling production,
  • adapt a breeding program for the development of high-performing cultivation strains,
  • develop efficient and environment-friendly techniques for disintegrating seaweed biomass,
  • develop efficient and environment-friendly methods to extract and map high-value compounds suitable for food ingredients, fine chemicals and biomaterials.

The research is organised into five work packages, WPs. For more details, click here.
