Seaweed: A Very Sustainable Solution to Feed the World of Tomorrow
March 12 – 4:00 pm
Richard Beckett, Aquaculture Operations Manager
Lloyd’s Register Foundation is funding a very disruptive project with Wageningen University to develop seaweed production in the offshore wind farm area in order to enable a sustainable source of food, energy and water. Although seaweed has been used as food for centuries, logistics, multiple uses of the sea space and safety issues have limited large scale production.
The idea of our project, now into its 2nd year, is to enable in 3 pilots around the world the seaweed production in large offshore wind farms area in order to:
- Avoid parallel activities and benefit from existing infrastructure
- Leverage on the presence of iron from windfarm infrastructure to boost production
This presentation focuses on seaweed’s potential to help to feed a world of 10Bn people with sustainable and safe food.
