SEAWEED-STAR

New research project: SES wins prestigious EUROSTARS project.

"Pål Bakken has a vision to produce large quantities of biofuels from the sea. Kelp plants grow much faster than plants on land and they pose no competition with food production."

"The Eurostar project looks at technology to cultivate seaweed on anchored sheets, with focus on offshore installations (...) adapted to Norwegian conditions. "
