We kicked off the sixth Algae Biomass Summit here in Denver yesterday afternoon with a crowded hall of more than 700 listening to Senator Mark Udall’s keynote that highlighted the national security dimensions that go along with developing a commercial algae industry here in the United States.
The military has a long history of developing technologies that are critical to its mission, and biofuels are no exception.
A press release today goes into more detail about the opening remarks and panel discussion among several algae business leaders that followed. Jim Lane of Biofuels Digest moderated the conversation and wrote today about some of the news, including Algenol’s announcement that they have achieved production rates of 7000 gallons/acre, in today’s edition of the Digest.
And just outside an exhibition hall that includes the latest technology and service providers to the industy is Below the Surface’s record-breaking algae-fueled motorcycle.
