COASTAL Biogas video – biogas from seaweed

A brief explanation of one aspect of the COASTAL Biogas project – Biogas from cast seaweed and algae. Excess seaweed and algae are a problem for the Baltic Sea. One solution is to collect it and use it for renewable energy. At the same time eutrophication is mitigated since nutrients are physically removed from the sea/beach.
