The algae industry is just one part of an emerging trend in botechnology. As the biological sciences advance, and as commercialization of those advances is making new products and services a reality, there is an increased focus on what’s becoming known as the biobased economy.
As you might expect, leading institutions around the world are playing a role in how a new value chain that links biomass production with processing and other services is coming together.
One chance to learn about the various components is at the symposium on Biorefinery for Food, Fuel and Materials 2013 in in Wageningen, The Netherlands this coming April. We encourage those involved in the algae industry, especially those in Europe, to attend.
One focus of the discussion will be how food and non-food applications can further benefit from each other.
