SeaSusProtein

SeaSus Protein will turn environmental problems of macroalgae blooms – the so-called ‘green tides’ – into the protein source of the future. With focus on the green sea lettuce (Ulva sp), the project will optimise the extraction of high quality protein for functional foods. The project spans from developing gentle large-scale harvest of Ulva and documenting…

ValueFarm

ValueFarm works towards a more efficient and automized Ulva production system, including mechanized determination of optimal harvest time from automated image analysis. Sea lettuce (Ulva sp.) are high value green macroalgae, that can efficiently be produced in land-based facilities. ValueFarm is a Eurostar project supported by the EU Commission. The project runs from 2021 to…

Tang.nu

Tang.nu is a large Danish project involving research institutions, companies, and authorities. The project aims to put focus on the perspectives in growing and using seaweed as a sustainable resource and to help the seaweed business in Denmark grow. Read more here.

Climate Feed

Seaweed can help reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases from livestock. That is the goal of the research project Climate Feed funded by Innovation Fund Denmark which is developing a feed with seaweed which reduces methane from cattle. The emissions of CO2 and greenhouse gases from farming makes up 20 percent of the total emissions…
