E-dialogue on Seaweed Diversity and Technology: Towards a Sustainable Technology
The world production of marine macroalgae, or seaweed, has more than tripled to 32.4 MMT for the past 10 years since 2008. The seaweed production is extremely important in the region not only from the economic point of view but also for the sustainability of the sector, thus contributing to achieving SDGs. Noteworthy that among the top 15 aquatic algae producing countries, most are from the Asia Pacific Region with China and Indonesia leading the pack.
To address the emerging issues in the growing Asia pacific Seaweed sector and to keep the industry stakeholders updated on the diversified seaweed products and innovations, SCU is pleased to be the official sponsor and participating partner for the E-seminar with Infofish scheduled to take place on 21 April 2021.
As one of the distinguished keynote speakers of the event, our CEO Mr Philip Gu will share his insights on the industry, leveraging his vast experience as a Post-harvest Consultant for UNFAO overseeing south pacific seafood industry. One of the key highlights which Mr Philip will share is leveraging technology across the value chain from precision cultivation to value-added product development to multiple downstream applications of seaweeds.
Another interesting highlight from his sharing is how a small, land-scarced tropical city of Singapore can emerge to be 1 of the leading urban city sustainability and food solution provider with its high-intensity seawater vegetable cultivation system. Last but not least, the seminar will cap off the Singapore case study with a video showcasing the technology and the innovation achieved from the sea grape project.
