Seaweed waste mitigation

Develop an efficient and sustainable process or technology to convert low-grade, excess or waste seaweed into fertilizer or agrifeed

Seaweed has the potential to feed our growing global population, support coastal economies, and even contribute to healthier oceans. An annual growth in seaweed farming by 14 per cent would produce 500-million dry weight tons by 2050, increasing the world’s current food supply by 10 per cent and generating up to $28 billion each year for the industry. 

As the seaweed industry continues to expand, increased importance will be placed on innovative technologies that help solve challenges such as site analysis and monitoring, increasing harvest potential and processing efficiency, as well as waste reduction and mitigation.
