BioMara- Sustainable Fuels from Marine Biomass
Start date: Jan 4, 2009, End date: Dec 29, 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

BioMara will demonstrate the feasibility and viability of producing mari-fuels from marine biomass derived from both macroalgal (seaweeds) and microalgal (single celled plants) sources as an alternative to agri-fuels production from terrestrial land plants: in particular targeting specific questions designed to build on the current knowledge-base available within this unique set of geographical regions. This will not only provide the area with access to a more economically and environmentally sustainable local renewable fuel source, but also help service local public transport infrastructure and build on the regions’ technology-base. At the same time, development of mari-fuels will help to support traditional ways of life in remoter communities by providing locally produced, relatively cheap, low impact fuel.
