Tangnetværket har til formål at fremme produktion, anvendelse, formidling og viden om tang, herunder styrke samarbejdet nationalt.

Kære alle medlemmer af tangnetværket.
Tusind tak for at I var med til at gøre Tangnetværkets 10 års jubilæum til en festlig og inspirerende begivenhed.

Af kommende  Tangnetværksmøde vil vi lige nævne at vi planlægger  besøg hos Lonza Copenhagen i Vallensbæk, som er en globalt førende producent af agarose, der blandt andet benyttes til protein separation inden for medicinal-industrien. Besøget vil finde sted i starten af marts. Inden da skal vi også have et Tangnetværksmøde, hvor Ruth præsentere sin nye bog om makroalger.

Nærmere oplysninger med invitation og program følger.
Indtil da Glædelig jul og godt nytår

The vegan dish is protein-rich, requires no fresh water to produce, and releases oxygen into the atmosphere, unlike most the world’s protein today that is derived from animals. Around 70 percent of the world’s available fresh water is used to rear livestock or cultivate crops. Algae, however, can flourish without the presence of fresh water. It can grow anywhere from deserts to oceans, ponds, and aquariums. This [...]
