WELCOME TO ALGAE SEMINAR
Is it possible to cultivate algae in a Nordic climate and then use them as a fuel in your car? This is one of the questions that are going to be explored by the researchers and entrepreneurs in the TransAlgae project. The overall goal is to find new solutions for renewable energy and products from algae grown in a Nordic climate.
