Hortimare plays an active role in this project, having it's highlights in Work Package 3, and in specific
in Task 3.4.1 (Phycoremediation). The task involves mitigation strategies involving industrial processes. Hortimare supplies wild green, brown and red seaweed species which are collected in European coasts. These will be transfered into tanks for growing. After cultivation, the uptake of priority contaminants will be determined for some weeks and the physiological response of the plant will be evaluated. Ranges of these tests will be executed and will provide a clear overview on how seaweed reacts to contaminants present in various sites around Europe.
