Workshop: Algae Culture Maintenance, Production and Downstream Processing

The Spring 2015 ATP3 workshop Principles and Processes: Algae Culture Maintenance, Production and Downstream Processing will take place from May 18th-22nd at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, CO. If you are interested about working in the algae cultivation field ABO strongly recommends the resources available through ATP3.

Lectures will cover the fundamentals of managing microalgal cultures, culturing techniques, measuring biomass and high-value natural products, harvesting and processing technologies, as well as life cycle analysis and operations at the production scale.

Participants will have opportunities to work in the laboratory and learn how to measure culture density (cell counting and optical density), use a light and fluorescence microscope, perform gravimetric analyses (dry weight and ash-free dry weight), and techniques to analyze biomass compounds.
