Algaia is proud to be part of the world’s first commercial-scale seaweed farm funded by Amazon’s Right Now Climate Fund and located between offshore wind turbines, known as North Sea Farm 1. Led by North Sea Farmers, the project sits off the coast of the Netherlands and is designed to test and improve methods of seaweed farming. It will also support research on seaweed’s potential to store carbon.
Seaweed farming between offshore wind farms could scale to cover approximately 1 million hectares of the North Sea by 2040, potentially reducing millions of tonnes of CO2 annually. Hopefully, North Sea Farm 1 will become a blueprint for offshore seaweed farming across the world.

To be continued.
