SIMRIS ALG STRENGTHENS ITS BOARD OF DIRECTORS PRIOR TO THE UPCOMING MARKET LAUNCH
Paving the way for its upcoming market launch, the pioneering company Simris Alg has elected a new board. Among the new board members are Ebba Fåhraeus and Jan Johansson. Former board member and partner Björn Munkeby is now Chairman of the Board.
Simris Alg is participating in a big Swedish R&D project regarding algae cultivation at pulp and paper mills. The project is financed by Sweden’s Innovation Agency VINNOVA. The goal of the project is to develop a process which will generate large environmental benefits and new business opportunities for the mills. The algae can utilise the nutrients found in the mills’ waste waters and can absorb carbon dioxide from the flue gases.
