As part of Bio-Economy Week Ireland 2020, Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency, launched its bio-refinery report, ‘Scoping a seaweed bio-refinery concept for Ireland’. The event is chaired by David Millard (BIM) and speakers include co-authors of the report Sarah Hotchkiss and Ross Campbell (Cybercolloids). Lucy Watson (BIM) joins as a panelist for a Q & A session.

The report was commissioned by BIM in late 2019, and supported by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, highlights the potential to increase the value of Irish seaweed by focusing on its use as an ingredient at the whole-sale level for food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
