Open Collaboration
 Between Algae Research and Business

The National Algae Association is the first non-profit algae education and production trade association in the world started over 12 years ago. We provide a platform for commercially-minded algae researchers, algae producers, indoor algae biomanufacturing, equipment companies, water process engineers and academia in a collaborative approach in helping to build the emerging algae production industry.

 NAA provides educational Algae Production Workshops and Networking events, an Algae Biomass Incubator Program and  online Algae Production Certification Program for students, algaepreneurs and private industry interested in the commercial algae production and markets.

Commercial Cultivation, Harvesting, 
Extraction Methods and Technologies 

Algae can be grown into high value products such as nutraceutical Omega 3 EPA/DHA astaxanthin, cosmetics, feeds, food, bioplastics and potential fuels. Join in collaborative discussions on the latest methods and technologies in commercial algae production (ie; cultivation, harvesting, extraction and markets).

Carbon Sequestration and Utilization

Algae has the ability to sequester CO2 and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Many questions arise. What is actually coming off the flue? Can CO2 taken from the flue be scrubbed of particulates and metals and used to grow algae for co-products? What percentage of the scrubbed CO2 is actually being consumed by the algae? 

Captured carbon can be re-purposed and become an enabling nutrient instead of a waste stream. Reducing carbon emissions and generating new business opportunities and jobs could be a 'win-win.

Wastewater Remediation
Using Wastewater/Secondary Water 
to Produce Potential Co-products

Algae can be used to clean wastewater. Some wastewater (secondary wastewater) can be used as a nutrient to grow algae for potential co-products (ie; biofertilizer, bioplastics and potential fuels. Commercial algae equipment can be co-located at or near waste water treatment facilities. A potential win-win.

 Algae Production Workshop - Fall 2017

Call for Presentations

If you are a commercially-minded algae researcher, owner of  algae technology that is scalable outside the lab, in commercial algae production or a new algae start-up interested in commercial algae scale-up and production and would like to collaborate and share information about commercial cultivation, harvesting and extraction methods we encourage you to submit your presentation or abstract for consideration and join us at our next Algae Production Workshop - Fall of 2017 in Texas. 

NAA supports all algaepreneurs
 in the commercial deployment
 of algae technologies.

What should you expect from Algae Production Workshops?

Collaboration and open, honest conversation about commercial algae production methods and 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 production industry today is being built by commercially-proven algae methods and technologies, private industry, private investment and not the next government algae research grant.
