"Seagriculture: Sea(weed) Farming Commodities" will look at methods for cultivation and harvesting as well as filtering, refining and waste, and business opportunities. As well as workshops and presentations, there will also be visits to production sites.
Seaweeds have also been touted as a valuable bioenergy crop because they are fast-growing, require no fertiliser and have fewer environmental consequences, although technical challenges remain.
The event takes place on the island of Neeltje Jans on 18-20 September. See seagriculture.eu.
