Project Name: VALORALGAE: closing the value chain in marine aquaculture through the algae washed ashore energy recovery.

Programme: This project is developed with the collaboration of Fundación Biodiversidad, the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, through the pleamar Program, co-financed by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, EMFF.

Budget Allocation:  € 78,262.39

Duration: 2020-2021
