MACRO CASCADE aims at exploring and developing new technologies for breeding and cultivating S. latissima and P. palmata with the aim to develop new macroalgae strains or cultivars with specification (e.g. high contents of certain biomolecules) of interest for the future market. Newly developed cultivation methods will be tested at large scale, and automated harvesting equipment will be developed.  In addition green seaweed Ulva will be harvested from wild to use in the enzymatic refining for high value products.
