Rapid Reduction of Nutrients in Transitional Waters project (RaNTrans)
Project Rantrans is a 3year Interreg funded programme being delivered by Partners in England and France to contribute towards reductions in algal-mat coverage and coastal eutrophication, as well as providing further opportunities for novel methods to be developed into economical commercial main-stream operations.
Areas of work for this programme includes;
- Algal mat removal and utilization of marine worms for conversion into aquaculture feed
- Seaweed and Oyster farming which capture and cycle nutrients (bioremediation)
- Bioactive extracts from seaweed for human benefits (antioxidants in foods, food supplements, nutraceuticals and medicines are considered from the perspective of benefits to human health).
- Water quality monitoring as well as nutrients and algal growth mapping/modelling
