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

If you attend the 2019 Summit you will also have a rare chance to tour carbon capture and algae cultivation demonstration at a nearby power plant operated by the Orlando Utilities Commission. 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. More information about the tour is available at:

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