Algae Biomass Summit 2019 – Algae in food and feed going mainstream

[Global] The Algae Biomass Summit is the algae industry’s premier event, where leading producers of algae products go to network with industry suppliers and technology providers, where project developers converse with utility executives, and where researchers and technology developers rub elbows with venture capitalists.

Commercial algae production is being lauded as a new agricultural phenomenon that can provide sustainable feedstocks of proteins and oils for hundreds of new products, absorb millions of tons of carbon dioxide, treat wastewater, and become a driver of economic growth around the world. The Algae Biomass Summit, now it its 13th year, has become the premier conference for the business and scientific community working to take full advantage of the latest innovations.

“The past decade has delivered thrilling growth for the algae opportunity in almost every market, and we will be exploring all of them at the Summit,” said Mark Allen, Chair of ABO’s Board of Directors and Vice President at Accelergy Corporation. “This unique event brings together every quarter of the algae community, making the Summit the go-to place to see new products and meet the industry’s key leaders in business, research, and government.”

Topical themes that will be explored at the largest gathering of algae professionals include:

  • Hundreds of new products that algae can create in markets for sustainable protein alternatives, aquaculture and animal feeds, nutritional supplements, cosmetics and skin care, biofuels, fertilizers, clothing, plastics, and much more
  • The critical role algae can play in carbon capture, water treatment and other industrial services in need of process and sustainability improvements
  • A new federal inter-agency group setting the agenda for advancing algae technologies and innovations, including millions of dollars in funding to be announced over the next year
  • Scientific advances in algae cultivation, harvesting, strain selection, and more
  • Education and training opportunities for the algae workforce

Attendees of the 2019 Summit will also have the unique opportunity to tour a power plant operated by the Orlando Utilities Commission that is demonstrating carbon capture and algae cultivation technologies. This project, supported by the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, illustrates how algae can be used to address climate change and produce valuable biomass for fuel, feed or other products.

In addition to more than a hundred speakers, the Summit also features networking and hands-on demonstrations in a central exhibit hall, a product showcase, and a Young Innovators Lounge for early-career scientists.
