production of polyhydroxyalkanoates
SMART SEAWEED is a project funded by Fundo Azul – Direção-Geral de Política do Mar (DGPM) and has a duration of 2 years (2019-2021).
SMART SEAWEED brings together a multidisciplinary team encompassing experts and competences in each specific area. The partners involved are two research institutions (IST and IPMA), one SME on aquafeed production (SPAROS) and a seaweed processing company (IBERAGAR).
This team seeks the valorization of seaweed resources aiming at their application as food and aqua-feed ingredients and as platform feedstock for the biological production of different value added products, e.g., bioplastics and compounds with application in cosmetics.
