EnAlgae publishes economic model for offshore cultivation of macroalage

EnAlgae researchers have published an economic model to help to explore the economics of cultivating macroalgae at sea.

The model and report can be found here as outputs WP2A7.06 and WP2A7.11. Both documents together are a study into the business economics behind growing seaweed at sea.


They are free to download, and we would welcome any feedback on the content. You can send this to us at info@enalgae.eu

"The report and model have been compiled by our colleagues at Wageningen UR in collaboration with colleagues at University of Ireland Galway, Queen's University Belfast, CEVA in Brittany and ourselves here in Swansea," said project coordinator Dr Shaun Richardson. "All the information gained from their research will now be incorporated into our Decision Support Tool which will be released later this year. "

The EnAlgae project is led by Swansea University and funded by the European Union under the INTERREG IVB North West Europe programme. EnAlgae unites experts and observers from 7 EU member states to determine the potential benefits of algae as a future sustainable energy source.
