The National Algae Association is the first non-profit 501(c)6
algae production trade association in the world. It's where private industry collaborates with commercially-minded algae researchers, engineers, and commercial cultivation, harvesting and extraction equipment providers. Join algaepreneurs, farmers, biomanufacturing professionals and potential investors in helping to build the commercial algae production industry.

Be involved and make presentation at our upcoming January 22-23, 2015  Algae Production Workshop in Lafayette, Louisiana and tour of an algae production incubator company facility.


Algae Production Workshop in Lafayette, Louisiana

January 22-23, 2015

Sharing of information and collaboration between algae producers, commercially-minded algae researchers, engineers and equipment companie are key factors in building the algae production industry.  NAA is technology neutral. Algae technologies must be proven outside the lab in a commercial environment before they can have any value to our industry. Our workshops are designed to educate and share information on different algae strains, commercial algae production processes, equipment and potential markets in the algae industry. 

If you would like to present January 2015 in Louisiana, can contribute in an open collaborative environment on any of the topics below and are interested in 'fast-track commercialization and deployment' of the algae production industry, please submit your presentation by Dec. 15, 2014. *Selected presentations will be announced.

We will be focusing on five (5) areas of commercial interest:

1.  Nutraceuticals - Omega 3 EPA/DHA

-Growing, harvesting and extraction of haematococcus pluvialis

- Crack or don't crack stressed dried material.
- Which drying method?
- Does it make more sense to sell HP directly to an extractor or                contract for oleoresin extraction and sell astaxanthin.
- How do you stress (many levels)
- In the growth container or in a separate system
- How long, when do you know you are done without an GC/MS                analysis

2.  Feeds

- Dairy and Beef Cattle
- Poultry
- Swine
- Tropical and Cold Water Fish
- Shrimp

3.  Food

-  Spirulina for food

4.  CO2 Sequestration - EPA aims to slash existing power plants’ CO2 by 30% .  How will that affect commercial algae production?

- Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) - a viable CO2
mitigation tool enabling coal fired-power, cement plants and refineries to lower CO2 emissions..

5.  Wastewater

- Using wastewater to grow algae for fuels.
- Using algae to clean wastewater.

*Submit presentations to: by December 15, 2014.
