Scoping a Seaweed Biorefinery Concept for Ireland
23/10/2020 | 10.00 - 10.45 | Online
As part of Bio-Economy Week Ireland 2020, Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency, invites you to attend a webinar on Friday 23 October to launch its bio-refinery report, ‘Scoping a seaweed bio-refinery concept for Ireland’. The event is being chaired by David Millard (BIM) and speakers include co-authors of the report Sarah Hotchkiss and Ross Campbell (Cybercolloids). The report, 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. The event will conclude with a Q & A session.
