SLH has a broad experience in (bioactive) components, ingredients, treshhold values and Danish and EU regulations of seaweeds. Research focus is on algal biomass production for food, feed and ingredients with specific expertise in algal cultivation and breeding, components of algae and algal biomass utilization. Algal biomass is used as biofilter and applied as food or in a biorefinery concept with the extraction of high added-value products (and the residuals utilized for bioenergy and fertilizer purposes). SLH is at present involved in e.g. the Danish GUDP project: Kombi-opdræt, optimizing the biofilter near a marine fish farm. This research involves mapping the seasonal variations of seaweed components, and breeding of seaweed including the protoplast methods for optimized integrated multitrophic aquaculture (IMTA). SLH is the chairman of the Seaweed Network in Denmark ( initiated in 2008, with more than 270 members from industry, universities, organizations, national authorities, chefs, fish farmers, groups and persons that work with or have interest in seaweed. The Seaweed Network in Denmark meets twice a year with cross disciplinary oral presentations and discussion forums, seaweed excursions of several days duration and a newsletter. Chair of the members in the National Organizing Committee for the 22nd International Seaweed Symposium, Copenhagen 2016 (
