Macroalgae Farming: An Ocean-Based Solution to Reduce Climate Change

Fearless Fund (2019)

Macroalgae farming has the potential to assist two strategies to avoid climate change: the conversion of biomass to carbon-neutral fuels to reduce fossil fuel usage and carbon removal from the system. The process avoids the use of land, fresh water and fertilizers typical of land-based agriculture (for example, corn for ethanol). The most important aspect is that macroalgae farming is scalable.
