AT SEA Project Movie
AT~SEA, advanced textiles for open sea biomass cultivation, is an EU 7th framework project which started in 2012 and ended in July 2015. This research project targeted the development of advanced, 2D seaweed cultivation substrates in order to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of seaweed cultivation in Europe. These advanced seaweed cultivation substrates are a breakthrough for realising European-based industrial scale seaweed cultivation, the latter offering a sustainable and renewable source for food and feed additives, for biochemicals/biomaterials, and for bioenergy. Based on the results of the project a spin-off company, called AT~Sea Technologies, is founded that will supply turnkey seaweed farms. The company was co-founded by 8 of the AT~SEA partners.
