Our Industry

We are the first non-profit algae education and trade association in the world that provides a platform for commercially-minded algae researchers, producers, technology and equipment companies using open collaborative approaches between research and industry in building the projected $3.4 billion dollar industry.  Algae biomass and oil can be made into nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA astaxanthin, cosmetics, food, feeds, bioplastics and potential fuels.

Only through real collaboration will algae researchers understand the needs and requirements of the commercial algae production industry moving forward. Writing more white papers, searching for the next research grant funding needs to be useful in the commercial algae production industry and the investment community.  It takes a variety of research and business disciplines. The algae production industry is only interested in algae production technologies that are proven outside the lab, scalable and have a low CAPEX that can be used to enhance existing commercial production methods.

​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 minded algae researchers proven algae production technologies from private industry along with private investment.

Algae Production Webinar
​Call for Presentations

The National Algae Association's Algae Production Webinars focus exclusively on commercial algae production methods, markets, pricing and strategic relationships. We extend invitations to all algae producers throughout the world to make presentation, and to share knowledge and different experiences in commercial cultivation, harvesting and extraction, as well as new market opportunities. Other topics include discussions on high value Omega 3 EPA/DHA astaxanthin, cosmetics, food, feeds and other products from microalgae. For consideration: barry@nationalalgaeassociation.com 
Got CO2? 
Commercial algae producers use approximately 1.4 tons of CO2 to produce 1 ton of algae biomass. Sequestration and utilization opportunities
