Join the Emerging Algae Industry
The National Algae Association (NAA) is the first non-profit algae education and production trade association in the world that provides a platform for commercially-minded algae researchers,
algae producers and equipment companies in a collaborative approach building the emerging commercial algae production industry.
Decades of Algae Research
NAA has been reporting that taxpayers have spent over $2.5 billion dollars on algae research starting with the first Carnegie Mellon algae study 75 years ago. We continue to promote balance between the university algae research world, private industry and the investment community to create new jobs and new business opportunities but, with all due respect to constrained algae research grant recipients, there is a huge learning curve between what takes place in the labs and commercial scale-up of algae farms and biomanufacturing facilities. That is why the National Algae Association was created as the first non-profit algae education and production trade association in the world over 13 years ago.
Only through real collaboration will algae researchers understand the needs and requirements of the commercial algae production industry. Writing more white papers, searching for the next research grant funding needs to be useful in the commercial algae production industry. It takes a variety of disciplines. Algae research today must communicate and collaborate more due to the constant changes taking place in our industry.
Projected Algae Products and New Markets
Algae can be made into high-value nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA - astaxanthin, cosmetics, food, beverage mixes, feeds, biofertilizer, pigments, bioplastics and potential fuels.
