Growing your greens: ecosystem service provision through commercial Ulva cultivation

S.E.A. Consultants Ltd and Durham University received a 2015 ABSIG SPARK Plus Award for their project "Growing your greens: ecosystem service provision through commercial Ulva cultivation."

This project evaluated how commercial cultivation of the green Ulva seaweeds can provide provisioning (food & fuel) and regulatory (bioremediation) ecosystem services to the UK’s coastal economies.  

The use of facilities developed by the lead SME, which are highly innovative on-land tank based systems, will see seaweed cultivation possible at any location.

The project enabled significant advancement in technology and process towards commercial viability and operation.
