The Algae Biomass Organization (ABO), the trade association for the algae industry, announced a preliminary agenda for the 10th annual Algae Biomass Summit in Phoenix on Oct. 23-26.
The agenda for the world's largest algae conference promises a vast array of discussions about advances in algae commercialization, research and finance. The agenda is available online at http://www.algaebiomasssummit.org/?page=Agenda.
Arizona is home to some of the country's most advanced test areas for algae technologies, cultivation techniques and product development. The state is a key algae technology hub for products ranging from pharmaceuticals to nutraceuticals and biofuels.
"We're looking forward to bringing the Algae Biomass Summit back to Phoenix for a chance to showcase the incredible advances the algae industry has made since our last visit in 2010," ABO Executive Director Matt Carr said. "We will be celebrating 10 years of progress by hearing from top scientists discussing the very latest breakthroughs, and the innovative companies that are making algae-derived products more affordable and more effective in health, agriculture, carbon utilization, wastewater treatment and dozens of other markets."
