Algae Production Networking Workshop

Collaboration + Innovation = Fast-track Commercialization

Kessil  Lighting
Richmond, California

April 23 - 24, 2015

Algae are made into many different ingredients, materials and products. The National Algae Association’s next Algae Production Networking Workshop will focus on Nutraceutical - Omega 3 EPA/DHA, the highest value product made from algae.  NAA will highlight best practices in inoculation, cultvation, harvesting and extraction methods for the commercial production of haematococcus pluvialis for astaxanthin.

Due to the US government's continued support for more algae fuel research needed and lack of support for commercialization and deployment, commercial algae producers in the US have temporarily moved from algae-based fuels to co-products.  Most commercially-minded algae researchers, algae producers and equipment companies are not building biorefineries for fuels but are focusing on new algae farming and indoor biomanufacturing opportunities for higher value products like nutraceuticals Omega 3 EPA/DHA, cosmetics, feeds, food, ingredients and bioplastics. Wastewater usage and cleaning, sequestration of CO2 at coal-fired and cement plants will be included
in  discussions.

Since lighting systems are a major factor in growing algae indoors, experts will compare LED and non-LED lighting and be leading presentations on benefits and costs.

Commercial algae production cultivation, harvesting, extraction methods and as well as algae-based CO2 sequestration systems will be discussed.

NAA as an association is technology neutral.  Our focus is on proven alga technologies that work outside the lab in commercial production.  Despite what some people think, in the investment community the technologies have virtually no value until they are proven. in commercial algae production.  Our workshops are designed to educate and create value in algae IP, strains, production processes, equipment and potential markets.   We provide training and new market opportunities through our Algae Production Incubator Program and Algae Biomass Exchange on Linkedin for qualified algae buyers and sellers of algae biomass.

If you are interested in presenting at one of our quarterly workshops send us your presentation for review on proven algae technologies that can scale outside the lab in commercial production or equipment and services that can assist in the commercial scale-up of the algae production industry, please submit your presentation for review to: or contact us at 936.321.1125.

Collaboration + Innovation = Fast-track Commercialization

The National Algae Association is the first non-profit 501(c)6 algae production trade association in the world. It's where private industry, commercially-minded algae researchers, engineers, commercial equipment providers and potential investors/lenders join together in collaboration in moving the algae production industry forward.

National Algae Association reserves the right to refuse the participation in any program or offeing, and registration or attendance at any of its events by any person or entity.
