Carbon capture with seaweed cultivation – How to do it right
Seaweed farming has been picking up in the media lately as a positive future biomass source, but we also see a lot of claims where seaweed is promised to capture and store large amounts of carbon. Seaweed is efficient at capturing carbon, but whether this carbon is stored or not is dependent on the use of the biomass. During the event we will discuss and learn more about which climate effects seaweed cultivation can have depending on the use of the biomass and how we can develop a future seaweed industry that can contribute to net zero emissions.
