Seaweed can be a sustainable, healthy, and vegan source of protein, dietary fibres, and omega 3.
This short movie will show you how on-going research conducted at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology focuses on optimizing seaweed cultivation and extracting seaweed proteins.
While the marine environment is typically associated with traditional activities such as fishing or transport, it houses an increasing number of emerging, innovative sectors including the rapidly growing seaweed aquaculture sector. This movie will show you how the rapidly expanding European Blue Economy could profit from profound seaweed research including innovative integrated biorefineries.
