Ocean value chains

Our research is currently focusing on seaweed and the provision of scalable nature-based solutions that offer possibilities for Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR). Seaweeds are excellent biomass producers that have rapid growth rates. The seaweed can be harvested and sequester carbon long term in ocean sediments or in products such as biochar for soil improvement. As it grows in the sunlight zone of the ocean, seaweed fixes carbon through photosynthetic primary production in the same way as trees and plants on land.
