Promising results of seaweed carbon sequestration study presented at OCEANS 2050 conference

Oceans 2050's seaweed project has the objective to quantify the seaweed carbon sequestration globally with a ground-breaking study that will help restore abundance to the world’s ocean and advancing climate restoration through seaweed aquaculture.

First results showed that seaweed farms do in fact capture carbon. Details as well as facts and data collected in 12 countries on five continents will be published later this year in research journals.

According to Simon, "it was extremely exciting to contribute to this ground breaking work on carbon capture by seaweed farms alongside leading experts and seaweed farms from around the world."
