Amazon supports seaweed farm located between offshore wind turbinesAmazon is funding a commercial-scale seaweed farm located between offshore wind turbines. The project is managed by a consortium of scientific researchers and partners from the seaweed industry, led by non-profit organisation North Sea Farmers (NSF), and is expected to become operational by the end of this year.
The consortium hopes that North Sea Farm 1 will evolve into a blueprint for offshore seaweed farming the world over. Amazon is granting €1.5 million to create this first-of-its-kind seaweed farm and carry out a year’s scientific research into carbon reduction through seaweed farming. The project North Sea Farm 1 will be located in a wind farm off the coast of the Netherlands. Seaweed has the potential to help tackle climate change by absorbing CO2 as it grows, and could enhance biodiversity. Seaweed can also be used to manufacture packaging, food and clothing.
