Cultivating algae for various purposes is being done to quite a large extent today, in research as well as in business.
Seafarm is a research project where algae are being cultivated on the Swedish West Coast for use for a variety of purposes, food and biobased materials, for instance. Seafarm is a joint project between KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Chalmers in Gothenburg, Gothenburg University, Lund University, the Linné University and the research council Formas.
Simris Alg is a Swedish company that cultivates algae in order to produce Omega-3 supplements as an alternative to Omega-3 supplements from fish – free from the heavy metals that you get in fish oil.
In this episode we meet Fredrik Gröndahl, researcher at KTH who is the project leader of the research project Seafarm, and Fredrika Gullfot, founder of Simris Alg, talking about growing algae and what algae could be used for.
