Seaweed Centre Texel

The Netherlands Seaweed Science Centre (NSSC, in short Seaweed Centre) is established at NIOZ Texel. The Seaweed Center performs fundamental and applied research on seaweeds. Seaweeds are an attractive source of biomass from the sea. They do not need precious freshwater, no claims on agricultural soils are made, they grow on available nutrients in the sea (even reducing eutrophication) and they do not need application of pesticides.
