Energy project success

UK technology innovation provider for process manufacturing, the Centre for Process Innovation, has announced that the SeaGas collaboration has successfully harvested a 20 tonne batch of seaweed, the largest harvest of farmed seaweed in the UK.

SeaGas is jointly funded by Innovate UK and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and is assessing the viability – both technical and financial – of farming sugar kelp seaweed for bioenergy production through anaerobic digestion.
