UNLOCKING THE BLUE BIOECONOMY
LEVERAGING SEAWEED FOR GOOD
DEVELOPMENT OF SPECIALISED VALUABLE PRODUCTS FROM SUSTAINABLE SEAWEED
Biomara has developed its biotechnology concept to manufacture high-value products from seaweed biomass for sale into cosmetics, nutraceuticals, functional food, biopharmaceutical and other markets.,
Biomara is early days with big ambitions to support an emerging seaweed industry
BioMara will use Scottish native kelp ocean-farmed species for its biomass feedstock. This stimulates a local, sustainable feedstock supply refined into high-value and high-impact products. BioMara is against large-scale unsustainable mechanical harvesting of wild seaweed. Therefore, new product development supports the price-premium required by local suppliers.
Yes! Seaweed is slimy, but it is an extremely useful and dynamic biorefinery feedstock.
A different approach, using a new method of production.
BioMara is focused on innovation in product development. Therefore new manufacturing methods, with specific species for specific end-uses result in a unique approach to production. R&D internally and through collaborations leverage unique seaweed properties to develop differentiated and specialised products.
