Call for Algae Bloom & HAB Capture,
Recycling and Remediation Presentations
Note: Registration, dates and times to be announced shortly.
Algae blooms and HABs in waterways are affecting fishing, swimming, tourism, real estate values and local economies and are a health risk to humans and animals. Decades of research, testing and monitoring alone have not fixed any of these these water quality problems. They worsen every year in 50 states. (see EWG. org)
Join commercially-minded researchers, solutions-oriented remediation technologies and equipment companies as they tackle the worsening algae bloom and HAB events taking place in US and throughout the world.
Due to different types of bloom problems in canals, streams, rivers, lakes, reservoirs and coastlines it takes different types of tremediation, recycling and repurposing technologies working together in real-time to fcombat and fix these devastating water quality issues that can have an affect drinking water.
NAA strives to educate all stakeholders. state governors algae task forces, counties, lake associations, coastlines authorities as well as nutrient stewardship farmers, agriculture, potential investment and general pubic about solutions to fix these devastating algae bloom and HAB problems in 50 states.

Across U.S., Eruptions of Toxic Algae Plague Lakes, Threatening Drinking Water and Recreation
National Algae Association announces
two new pilot tests at farm edges, waterways and waterbodies.
Estimated Total Nitrogen and Total Phosphorus Loads and Yields Generated within States
Harmful Algal Blooms
I. On-Farm Nutrient Runoff Capture, Recycling and Repurposing Pilot Tests - Reduction of nutrient runoff at nonpoint sources entering waterways causing algae blooms and HABs by using effluents to grow algae for biofertilizer and other potential products. NAA is facilitating collaboration between nutrient stewardship farmers, agriculture sustainability and algae production technologies
II. On-Board Remediation and Repurposing Pilot Tests - Using slow moving boats and vessels for the remediation of algae blooms and HABs in canals, lakes and coastlines, repurposing and cleaning water.
As the algae industry leader, we must focus on nutrient runoff at nonpoint sources to help improve
algae bloom and HAB remediation results and water quality in canals, rivers, lakes and coastlines.
NAA's Science and Chemistry Committee reviews algae bloom, HAB, toxic algae and ride tide remediation technologies that are proven outside the lab, scalable and economically feasible for various types of waterway implementation and deployement. If your technology qualifies and wish to participate our pilot contact firstname.lastname@example.org
"A harmful algal bloom (HAB) contains organisms that can severely lower oxygen levels in natural waters, killing marine life. Some HABs are associated with algae-produced toxins. Blooms can last from a few days to many months. After the bloom dies, the microbes which decompose the dead algae use up even more of the oxygen, which can create fish die-offs. When these zones of depleted oxygen cover a large area for an extended period
of time, they are referred to as dead zones, where neither fish nor plants are able to survive.
HABs are induced by an overabundance of nutrients in the water. The two most common nutrients are fixed nitrogen (nitrates, ammonia, urea) and phosphate. These nutrients are emitted by agriculture, other industries, excessive fertilizer use in urban/suburban areas and associated urban runoff. Higher water temperature and low circulation are contributing factors. HABs can cause significant harm to animals, the environment and economies. They have been increasing in size and frequency worldwide, a fact that many experts attribute to global climate change". Wikipedia
