Philosophy & Purpose
Fostering the Future
The Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) is a nonprofit organization that envisions a world where humankind universally thrives with access to sustainable and productive resources. Our mission is to promote the development of viable commercial markets for renewable and sustainable commodities derived from algae. We believe in the power of algae to positively and meaningfully impact the way we eat, feed our livestock, and power our world. Together with our diverse membership of individuals, organizations, and companies ABO is dedicated to global change fueled by education, innovation, and collaboration.

Today’s Investment, Tomorrow’s Impact
The Algae Biomass Organization is leading the algae industry forward as the next generation of algae cultivation and biotechnology continues to advance and creates more opportunities for industry innovation and job creation.
