Research & Collaborations


The Northern Company is focused on the various ways seaweed can be used as a unique and innovative source for cosmetics, construction fibres, feed and natural fertiliser. We are involved in two research projects that look at some of these issues:


Promac based in Ålesund, focuses on energy efficient processing and refining of micro-algae for food and feed and includes logistics and economic analysis of the value chain, as well as life cycle analysis.


Sea-Surf-Snow with the University of Umeå looks at methods of production of Nano fibres from kelp.
