Wave of investment in macroalgae ?! 2

Will sea-based sugars from macro-algae provide a
new feedstock for advanced biofuels, drop in fuels and
biochemicals for these emerging sugar-based,
infrastructure compatible biofuels and chemicals
platforms?


Evidently, an increasing number of
petrochemical majors including Dupont, Statoil,
and ENAP believe harvesting sugars from macroalgae
is an attractive investment as a next-generation,
sea-based feedstock for advanced biofuels, dropin
fuels, biochemicals, and biopolymers.
