The National Algae Association is the first non-profit 501(c)6
algae education and production trade association in the world. It's where students, private industry, commercially-minded algae researchers, process engineers, lab/commercial equipment providers, potential investors/lenders join together in collaboration in fast-track commercialization and deployment of algae farms and biomanufacturing facilities moving the algae production industry forward.

If you are interested in presenting at our upcoming January 22-23, 2015  Algae Production Workshop in Lafayette, Louisiana and tour

Algae Production and Networking Workshop
Lafayette, Louisiana

January 22-23, 2015

Sharing of information of algae technologies that are proven outside of the lab and sclable is key to building the algae production industry.  Collaboration and networking between algae producers, commercially-minded algae researchers, engineers and equipment companies are key factors in building the algae production industry.  NAA is technology neutral. Any algae technologies must be proven
to work outside the lab in commercial production before they can have any value to our industry. Our workshops are designed to educate and share information on algae strains, production processes, equipment and potential markets in the commercial algae production industry. 

We will be focusing on five (5) areas of commercial interest:

Nutraceuticals - Omega 3 EPA/DHA



CO2 Sequestration


* If you would like to present January 2015 in Louisiana, can contribute in an open collaborative environment on any of the topics above and are interested in fast-track commercialization
of the algae production industry, please submit your presentation by Dec. 15, 2014. *Selected presentations will be announced.

*Submit presentations to: by December 15, 2014.  or contact 936.321.1125
