The National Algae Association (NAA) is the first non-profit algae education and production 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 industry a projected $3.4 billion dollar industry. Algae can be made into nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA, cosmetics, food, feeds, bioplastics and potential fuels.
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 share information in open collaboration due on the fast changing technologies and methods taking place in our industry.

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.
GOT CO2? Commercial algae producers use approximately 1.4 tons of CO2 to produce 1 ton of algae biomass. Sequestration and utilization opportunities
