Ragnhild is the director for the marine biotechnology group at Nofima. The group focuses on identifying, testing, isolating and scaling bioactive and valuable components, ingredients, peptides, molecules and composites from unused biomass. We mainly work with marine biomass and collaborate towards the terrestrial biomasses. The group develops processes in lab scale, and subsequently ensure that they are scalable and we can make prototype products at the demonstration facility, Biotep, which is owns and operated by Nofima. We work closely with consumer acceptance groups, with LCA and ensuing that the marine ingredients developed are sustainable and accepted in the market. Ragnhild holds a PhD in Chemistry and a MBA in sustainable innovation within the seafood sector. She has previously worked within bioprospecting and drug delivery before joining Nofima in 2014.
