Call for Presentations

(Fall 2017)

Join commercially-minded algae researchers, algae producers
equipment companies and private investment in collaborative discussions at the next Algae Production Workshop in The Woodlands, Texas on the latest methods and technologies that scale outside the lab, trends in moving the industrial algae production industry forward. 

Topics to include:

1. Commercial-scale closed-loop photobioreactors (PBR's),     fermentation, dewatering, extraction technologies.

2. High-value haematococcus pluvialis (HP) cultivation,     harvesting and extraction methods and technologies 
    for nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA - Astaxanthin.

3. Algae use in nutraceuticals, cosmetics, food, ingredients,     animal feed, fish feed, bioplastics and potential fuels.

4. Algae for wastewater remediation.

5. Algae cultivation using secondary water.

6. Algae for cost-effective CO2 sequestration and utilization​.

Open Collaboration Between Research and Business 

The National Algae Association is the first non-profit algae education and production trade association in the world started over 12 years ago. We provide a platform for commercially-minded algae researchers, algae producers and indoor bio-manufacturing, equipment companies, water process engineers and academia in a collaborative approach in helping 
to build the emerging algae production industry.

NAA provides educational Algae Production Workshops and Networking events, an Algae Biomass Incubator Program and  online Algae Production Certification Program for students, algaepreneurs and private industry interested in learning about the commercial algae production industry and markets.

Commercial Cultivation, Harvesting, 
Extraction Methods and Technologies? 

Algae can be grown into high value products such as nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA astaxanthin, cosmetics, feeds, food, bioplastics and potential fuels. Join in collaborative discussions on the latest methods and technologies in commercial algae production (ie; cultivation, harvesting, extraction methods,potential markets and supply channels).

Carbon Sequestration and Utilization?

Algae has the ability to sequester CO2 and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Many questions arise. 
What is the CO2 concentration? Can the CO2 be scrubbed of particulates and metals? What potential co-products can be produced? What percentage of CO2 is actually being consumed? 

Captured carbon can be re-purposed and become an enabling nutrient instead of a waste stream. Reducing carbon emissions and generating new business opportunities and jobs could be a win-win!

Wastewater Remediation
Using Wastewater/Secondary Water 
to Produce Potential Co-products?

Algae can be used to clean wastewater. Some secondary wastewater can be used as a nutrient to grow algae for 
co-products (ie; biofertilizer, bioplastics and potential fuels). Commercial algae equipment can be co-located at or near waste water treatment facilities to clean wastewater. A potential win-win.

What should you expect from Algae Production Workshops?

Collaboration and open, honest conversation about commercial algae production methods and technologies from people who are doing it, not talking about it and not dreaming about the latest, greatest new algae research project that are not out of the lab yet or projects that can’t be verified. 

The algae production industry today is being built by commercially-proven algae methods and technologies, private industry and private investment.​​​
