The demand for edible seaweeds (or marine algae) is increasing in Europe. Seaweed (macroalgae) grows in a variety of forms and colours in the ocean as well as in freshwater environments. Its biochemical composition and properties make seaweed a valuable material, and its range of applications is growing as current R&D technologies are refined and new discoveries are made. They include food products for humans, animal feed, cosmetics, bio-based chemicals for various industries, fertilisers, biofuel, and high-quality building insulation, among others. Europe is an attractive market for seaweed from developing countries.
The Seagriculture conference has built up a solid reputation as the leading conference for the seaweed industry and the Seagriculture conference in Europe has been successfully organized since 2012.
The Seagriculture Conference EU 2023 gathers top speakers, who will share their know-how within seaweed for feed, food, offshore cultivation, biorefinery of seaweed and much more. There will be presentations from more than 25 seaweed experts. The two-day program will go into the many different applications of seaweed that exist now and will combine 6 plenary sessions with networking, trade shows and panel disscusion sessions.
