The Summer of Algae II is off to a great start. The day after a kickoff event in San Diego it was time for St. Cloud State and algae start-up Algaedyne to partner in Minnesota for an event that showed off that state’s latest research and algae commercialization projects.
Local and national elected officials were on hand to learn how research and business-academic partnerships are coming together to find the best ways algae can be a sustainable source of fuels, food, feed, and chemicals.
The St. Cloud Times has a story, with video about the event.
Also check out NBC affiliate KARE 11’s great story with video of the facilities.
The Summer of Algae II is a campaign to raise awareness about algae’s potential and the industry’s progress toward commercialization. You can read more about the campaign in this press release, and about future events in this blog post.
