SUBMARINER to host algae cooperation event

Present and Potential Uses of Algae - A Cooperation Event

Trelleborg Climate change, increases in the price of fossil fuels and the search for renewable energy have made the potential uses of algae a hot topic within the field of sustainable development. Whether it is micro or macro, marine or limnic algae; whether it is for bioenergy production, water pollution remediation, CO2 capture, landfill management, or feed production, we have only just started to explore its potential. Our challenge is now to bring the research a step further and into practical use connecting basic research, commercial initiatives and ecological applications.

On the 28th and 29th of September the Municipality of Trelleborg and the Baltic Sea Region SUBMARINER project welcome you to an algae conference on the potential and future use of algae to be held in Trelleborg, Sweden.



The event will include a variety of lectures, workshops, exhibits, study tours, and unique opportunities for exchange. Invited speakers will range from local governments with experience in algae use, companies with practical application examples and researchers within the field. The event is targeted towards anyone with an interest in the latest research and practical use of algae and more specifically to national and local governments, private companies and scientists. An exhibition fair and cooperation event for businesses and entrepreneurs will be held. There are no registration fees.
