Algae Production Workshop Wrap-Up
National Algae Association's most recent workshop, showcasing proven commercial algae cultivation, harvesting and extraction technologies, was one of the most informative, forward looking events in the history of the Association.
Comments include "It was different than anything I expected. It was so interactive. Nobody is selling anything here or presenting more research theories. The presenters are showing us how to commercially grow, harvest and extract algae from hands-on experience and are sharing how they are addressing commercial production issues and plans to go to market!". "I am so glad nobody here is telling us how much more research is needed. Everyone is saying that it's time to take what we have already researched for 60 years and do something with it. Commercially-minded algae researchers and existing algae production companies showed how to do it." "I never thought I would learn so much about commercial algae production in such a short period of time."
The workshop concluded with a tour of Glen Mills, Inc.'s facility, and a live demonstration of mulitiple algae oil extractions.
Plans are already under way for our next workshop in Jan. 2014 in San Francisco. If you are interested in presenting a commercial algae production technology that can scale outside the lab on a commercial basis in January, send an abstract for review.
Don't sit on the sidelines waiting for the next grant to make something happen - be a part of the emerging commercial algae production industry!
President Obama recently said, "Each of us has a part to play in a new future that will benefit all of us. As we recover from this recession, the transition to clean energy has the potential to grow our economy and create millions of jobs -- but only if we accelerate that transition. Only if we seize the moment. And only if we rally together and act as one nation -- workers and entrepreneurs; scientists and citizens; the public and private sectors."
