Kelpinor is a Norwegian marine technology company originating from NTNU. Kelpinor has developed a method for harvesting and launching kelp, enabling economies of scale.
We do this with the goal of sustainably producing kelp as an ingredient for sustainable food, medicines, biofuels, bio- packaging and much more.
Kelpinor has the chance to win "Peoples Favorite" - a price of 500 000 NOK. This would enable Kelpinor to launch a nearshore kelp production frame with a capacity of more than 10 tonnes of seaweed for human consumption.
Jakten på nye naturressurser, strengere krav til klimautslipp og omstilling til sirkulær bioøkonomi, baner vei for det som skal bli en global giga-næring i følge EU, nemlig taredyrking.
