Collaboration + Innovation = Fast-track Commercialization
In keeping with industry trends, NAA's Workshops cover topics ranging from algae farming and indoor algae biomanufacturing for feeds, food, ingredients, cosmetics and bioplastics, to co-products made from wastewater and opportunities for sequestration of CO2 in their business models. Lighting systems, commercial harvesting and extraction will be discussed in detail. In addtion to a tour of Kessil Lighting,
8:30 am - Robert Henrickson, Smart Microfarms: "Opportunities in Scalable Algae Microfarms" Emerging production, supply chains, products and marketing
9:30 am - Matt Julius, St. Cloud State University: "Stop seeing red while making HP turn red. Practical tips for the growth of Haematococcus pluvialis"
10:30 am - Brian Goodall, Valicor: “Quo Vadis Commercial Algae Production”
11:30 am - Mael Disa-Vingataramin,OriginClear, Inc, Commercial harvesting.
2:00 pm - Fritz Chess, Eden Labs: "Extraction and Fractionation of Astaxanthin with Supercritical CO2"
3:00 pm - Darryl Cotton, Inda-Gro: "Utilizing Submersible Induction Lamps for Increased Levels of Algae Production"
4:00 pm David Lowry - Kessil LED
9:00 am - 12:00pm - Special Tour of Kessil LED and Networking Opportuniities.
What to expect? Collaboration and open, honest conversation about commercial algae production - not the latest, greatest new algae research technology that’s not out of the lab yet or projects that can’t be verified. The algae production industry today is being built by private industry with private investment, not the next research grant.

Collaboration and networking between commercially-minded algae researchers, algae producers, engineers, equipment companies and potential investors are key to building our industry. NAA's algae production networking workshops are based on sharing information about algae technologies that are proven to work outside of the lab, scalable with a low CAPEX that enhances the algae production industry.
