Algae Production Industry
NAA is the first non-profit algae trade association in the world. We provide platforms for commercially-minded researchers, production technologies and equipment companies using open collaborative approaches between academic institutions, private industry and private investment in helping to build the algae industry a projected $3.4 billion dollar industry. Algae biomass and oil can be made into nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA astaxanthin, cosmetics, food, feeds, new bioplastics and potential fuels.
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 succesful. 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.
Photobioreactor Challenge 2021

Collaboration between universities, colleges, private Industry and new algae start-ups
The world's first online
Algae Production Certification Program for students and private industry focusing on
all aspects of commercial algae production industry.
Contact for starting dates.
What should you expect from
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 Algae Industry
for 2021 Quarterly Webinars
The National Algae Association next webinar
will focus on technologies proven outside the lab, commercial algae production, methods, new markets, challenges and strategic relationships. We extend invitations to algae producers (the doers) make presentation, share information and experiences in collaboration with other algae producers in the US throughout the world in production of high value Omega 3 EPA/DHA astaxanthin, cosmetics, pigments, food, feeds, biofertilizer and new bioplastics.
Sequestration and utilization
It takes approximately 1.4 tons of CO2 to produce 1 ton of algae biomass for products.
