Seaweed research center was built in 2013, the main task is support technology research for key technical problems in seaweed industry: germplasma resource development, new variety seed breeding seaweed, new varieties breeding, cultivation, processing etc, providing technical support for industry development.
R & D Center covering an indoor area over 2,000 square meters, mainly engaged in seaweed seed breeding. Outdoor sea area is 66,700 square meters, mainly engaged in the cultivation of seed expansion aquaculture, it can produce high-quality seaweed seedlings more than 100 tons per year, which can meet 1334 hectares seedling needs.
To take full advantage of country seaweed resources, Libangda arranged technical staff to Shandong, Fujian, Zhejiang, South China Sea, and many other places to investigate as well as oversea countries Indonesia, Malaysia, Argentina etc. By analysis of different ocean space and cooperation with CAS Institute of Oceanology, Ocean University of China etc, we selected suitable red algae for cultivation, completed artificial cultivation technology research and developing, achieved industrialization scale cultivation, which build a solid seaweed industry raw material basement. Seaweed research center, made efforts to break the new type algae colloids raw material production capacity expanding, established of a pilot production line, which solved the problem of red algae raw material dependent on imports.
Under continuous efforts of seaweed research center, Libangda in recent years has developed a series of high-valued red algae products, because of the unique properties of the products, they occupied the domestic and oversea markets quickly, which directly contribute to a continued and rapid growth of seaweed farming industry, make the company competitive in globe marine functional products market, moreover, it also promoting the development of Qingdao's marine industry.
