Franck Hennequart has been speaking on the use of seaweed in agricultural products at the Artic Algae conference last week in Reykjavik.
Organized by Algae Iceland, Raekt and the European Algae Biomass Association, the conference sessions were articulated around the contribution of algae to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
A good way to demonstrate the outstanding positive impact of seaweed on so many SDGs from zero hunger to human health or clean energy. Franck’s speech was therefore part of the session on Life on land (SDG15).
Many algae stakeholders and participants were gathered at the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik to discuss the transition towards a more sustainable world thanks to algae.
This conference was also the opportunity to discover more about algae activities in the Artic Ocean such as the work of Emblamar Studio using icelandic kelp.
