“Each year our industry steps closer to the large-scale production of algae fuels and products that will help address the nation’s energy, food and environmental challenges,” said Mary Rosenthal, Executive Director of ABO. “Our sixth summit will highlight the accelerated pace of investment, technical development and job growth in this nationwide industry, and provide a knowledge sharing venue for policymakers, producers, suppliers, and everybody else in the algae value chain.”

Speakers and attendees at the Algae Biomass Summit will include national and international technologists, producers, scientists, investors, and policymakers. During the course of the event, leaders and attendees will discuss issues of critical importance to the emerging algae industry, including the commercial development of algal production, current government and private initiatives, evolving technologies, processing concepts, life cycle analysis and project finance.

The 2011 Algae Biomass Summit, held in Minneapolis, Minnesota was attended by more than 800 stakeholders across the algae industry from more than 25 countries.

Products made from algae are the natural solution to the energy, food, economic, and climate challenges facing our world today. Algae have the power to simultaneously put fuels in our vehicles, recycle CO2, provide nutrition for animals and people and create jobs for millions of Americans. More information can be found at
