FW: Call for Presentations for October 20, 2012 Workshop
NAA's 5th Annual Algae Production Certification Program
and Commercial Algae Production Networking Workshop
Including a tour of the NAA Test Center
The Woodlands Texas
October 19-20th, 2012
CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS FOR WORKSHOP
The National Algae Association, a 501(c)6, is the first non-profit algae trade association in the US to assist algaepreneurs and algae farmers in creating commercial-scale algae farms on non-arable acreage or inside large commercial buildings in the US using algae research, proven technologies and commercial algae production equipment. Algae oil can be made into biodiesel, biogasoline, jet fuel and bioplastics. Algae biomass can be made into many different co-products including nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and organic fertilizer.
To be considered, presentations of commercial technologies and equipment MUST be relative to commercial-scale algae production (not theory). Our audience is commercially focused. THE US NEEDS TO LEAD THE WORLD IN COMMERCIAL ALGAE PRODUCTION. The algae production industry is quickly moving algae technologies out of the lab and into commercial-scale algae production. Many new algae farms are scaling up to produce algae oil and biomass for co-products. Proven technologies are being implemented today in the scale-up of the new algae production industry. Enhancements by algae researchers will surely continue as algaepreneurs and algae farmers move into commercial algae production. We are united in wanting to help the US to get off foreign oil, to create jobs right here in the US and to reduce CO2 emissions. Since the government is too slow to move into commercial algae production, algaepreneurs and algae farmers are taking on the task of building new commerial algae production throughout the US.
The algae industry is estimated to be a $1.6 billion dollar industry, so there's plenty of room for everyone. We just need to verify data, scalability and get it done!
For your presentation to be considered they must be submitted to the NAA by by Sept. 14, 2012. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
