Abstract

Macro-algae (seaweed) is an abundant and, for the most part, under-utilised resource. This study has shown that microwave (MW)-mediated pyrolysis of seaweed occurs at extremely low temperatures and produces chemical rich bio-oils which are rich in aromatics, sugars and other high value chemicals.
