Seaweed needs to be processed. At its most basic, this entails simply drying the seaweed. But usually there is an extra step to transform the seaweeds or extract certain elements.

Traditional processing focuses on getting out one or two molecules, and having to toss away a large part of the seaweed biomass as “waste”.

The companies in the list below are building biorefineries that use 100% of the seaweed biomass while extracting a lot of different valuable elements.
