Seaweed Farmer 1.0

By scaling the production of seaweed, Seaweed Farmer 1.0 provides food for a growing population (SDG 2), ensures sustainable management and use of natural resources (SDG 12), captures CO2 (SDG 13), and restores the balance of the ocean by using seaweed as a biofilter (SDG 14). However, the process to get a seaweed farm up and running can be a long and tedious journey. This is why Nordic Algae are building an eco-system that can support seaweed farmers through every step of becoming successful and at the same time provide the food industry with a stable supply of biomass. When the food industry pre-orders seaweed, Nordic Algae notifies the farmers in their eco-system who will then harvest seaweed from the ideal farming locations provided for them. The seaweed is then delivered to Nordic Algae before being delivered to the industry. Seaweed Farmer 1.0' automated cultivation and harvesting solution - retrofitted to the farmer's boat - secures fast harvesting, making the work worthwhile for the seaweed farmer
