Algae Bloom & HAB Remediation Webinar
Call for Presentations
"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
Join solutions-oriented researchers, remediation technology and equipment companies as they tackle the reduction and remediation of worsening harmful algae blooms and red tide events taking place in the US and globally. Due to different types of blooms in canals, streams, rivers, lakes, marina's and coastlines we facilitate Algae Bloom & HAB Remediation Webinars to help find holistic, end-to-end, decentralized proven remediation solutions outside the lab, scalable that are economically feasible and eco-friendly that can be implemented and commercially deployed today on waterways by state and county governments and water quality authorities.

Harmful Algal Blooms
Harmful algae blooms in waterways are affecting fishing, swimming, tourism, real estate values, local economies and needs our immediate attention. They have been determined to be health risk to humans and animals.
The On-Farm Nutrient Remediation, Recycling and Repurposing - Pilot Test Program will help remove and reduce nutrient run-off at farms.
The National Algae Association in collaboration with farmer nutrient stewardship professionals are facilitating pilot tests bring together algae remediation technologies, algae production technologies and the farming community to help remove and reduce N & P effluent and some liquid manure at onsite farm drainage systems to help reduce devastating harmful algae blooms in waterways. The effluent will be used in algae cultivation for biofertilizer and other potential products. A potential win-win!
Decades of research, testing and monitoring harmful algae blooms alone have not fixed these devastating water quality problems. They worsen every year.
States, counties, task forces, lake associations, watershed and coastal authorities are interested in proven solutions outside the lab, scalable and economically feasible for various waterways.
