The National Algae Association (NAA) is the first non-profit algae education, production and remediation trade association in the world that provides a platform for commercially-minded algae researchers, producers and remediation technologies using a collaborative approach in building the emerging algae production and remediation industries. A projected $3.4 billion dollar market for algae products and potential $3 trillion dollar market for remediation.
Over 75 years of Algae Research
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.
Algae Products and Projected 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.

all aspects of commercial algae production industry.
Collaboration between universities, colleges, private Industry and new algae start-ups
What should you expect from Algae Production Workshops?
Collaboration and open, honest conversation about commercial algae production methods and remediation technologies from people who are doing it, not talking about it and not dreaming about the latest, greatest new algae research project that are not out of the lab yet or projects that can’t be verified.
The algae industry today is being built by commercially-proven algae methods and technologies, private industry and private investment.
