Webinar Dec 1st: Using algae to clean factory fumes and produce salmon feed

Photosyntech – The Norwegian Graduate School on Photosynthetic Eukaryotes, would like to invite you to our first ever webinar. In our webinar series we will explore the potential of the Norwegian plant and algae industry, by inviting experts from the field to give us an introduction to their companies and projects.

Hans Christian Eilertsen will start our webinar series by giving us an introduction to the Finnfjord Project, a cooperation between UiT – The Arctic University of Norway and the ferrosilicon producer Finnfjord AS, which started in 2015. The intention was to produce nutritious marine biomass by sequestering CO2 from the factory fume. At present they are operating a 300,000 L reactor, and the project is now ready to enter industrial scale production with a 3,000,000 L reactor. The main product is lice deterring salmon feed additive. The project is inter-disciplinary, and includes testing of the feed in industrial aquaculture processes.

You will get the chance to ask question through the chat after the presentation to learn more about the project and its application. If you already want to have a look at the project, check out this article on the UiT website. Mass cultivation of diatoms at Finnfjord AS | UiT
