Cultivation of macroalgae at the lowest trophic level, using only sunlight and nutrients from the sea while taking up CO:z, will have a neutral carbon footprint and the biomass will contribute significantly to meet the demand for food, feed, materials, chemicals, fuels and pharmaceuticals in near future. Through a new bioeconomy based on cultivated macroalgae Norway will establish a future feedstock bypassing the competition with land­based agricultural resources and at the same time contribute to the replacement of fossil resources.
This blue bioeconomy will strenghten Norway's role as the leading seafood nation as well as a leading supplier of marine, sustainable biomass. In order to boost a new bioeconomy based on cultivated macroalgae, three priority areas must be focused: 
• Biomass production technology
• Biorefinery prosesses
• Marked and product development

A Quick Look At The Latest Happenings In The Dynamometer Product & Services Market

The ever increasing demand for clean power sources particularly the wind, needs huge turbines and generators to produce power at large scale in an efficient manner. To develop such infrastructure there is a regular necessity of development facilities incorporating dynamometers to calculate the torque and power output.

DSRC Technology Market

DSRC has been widely used because of some unique properties such as low latency and high reliability. The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) allocated 75 MHz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz band to be employed for vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication. In addition, European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) allocated 30 MHz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz band.

A Quick Look At The Latest Happenings In The Driver Monitoring Systems Market

The automotive sector has seen a growing inclination towards the safety and comfort of the passenger over the years. This focus on safety of the passengers/driver is illustrated by the steps taken by automotive manufacturers, such as introduction of seat belts, air-bags and ABS (anti-lock braking) in the vehicles, also by government legislation making such devices compulsory. But with the advent of electronics and the internet connectivity, we have seen a quantum leap in the services now, available to make the vehicle safe as well as comfortable for the driver.
