BIM Webinar – Scoping a Seaweed Biorefinery Concept for Ireland


As part of Bio-Economy Week Ireland 2020, Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency, held a webinar on Friday 23 October at 10am to launch its bio-refinery report, ‘Scoping a seaweed bio-refinery concept for Ireland’.

The report, commissioned by BIM in late 2019, and supported by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, highlights the potential to increase the value of Irish seaweed by focusing on its use as an ingredient at the whole-sale level for food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
