80 Years of Algae Research
There is a huge learning curve between what takes place in a lab and scaling-up production. Only through real collaboration between research and private industry the algae industry moves forward. NAA members understand the needs and requirements of the commercial algae production industry. Writing more white papers, searching for the next research grant is useful but in order to create value in any algae technology it must be proven to the algae production industry and investment community must be working in a commercial setting. It takes a variety of research and business disciplines to be successful. The algae industry is only interested in algae production technologies that are proven outside the lab, scalable and have and economically feasible to enhance existing commercial production methods.
Algae Production Industry
After 80 years of research NAA is the first non-profit algae industry association in the US and the world. We provide platforms for commercially-minded algae researchers, production technologies and equipment companies a projected $3.4 billion dollar industry.
Photobioreactor Challenge 2021
NAA strives to identify the best commercial closed loop photobioreactors (PBRs) on the market today for the commercial cultivation of botryococcus braunii, chlamydomonas reinhardtii, chlorella, dunaliella, haematococcus pluvialis, nannochloropsis, spirulina, spirulina blue (phycocyanin) or scenedesmus.

What should you expect from Algae Production
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 minded algae researchers proven algae production technologies from private industry along with private investment.
Call for Presentations
The National Algae Association next webinar will focus on algae technologies proven outside the lab, scalable and economically feasible to enhance existing commercial algae production methods and forming new strategic relationships. We extend invitations to all algaepreneurs(tm) interested in presenting and sharing information, experiences and challenges in algae cultivation, harvesting and extraction of high value Omega 3 EPA/DHA astaxanthin, cosmetics, pigments, food, feeds, biofertilizer and new bioplastics.
Sequestration and utilization opportunities: It takes approximately 1.4 tons of CO2 to produce 1 ton of algae biomass for products.
