The algae industry can seem pretty complicated sometimes, so it helps when you can find a well-researched summary that breaks down the latest developments and potentials. David Babson, senior fuels engineer at the Union of Concerned Scientists offers exactly that in his recently posted impressions of Algae Week in Washington, DC.
From September 29-October 2, 2015 a number of algae workshops and meetings were held in the nation’s capital alongside the largest conference of algae leaders in the world, the Algae Biomass Summit. Babson was able to attend many of the sessions, and writes in his “5 Takeaways From Algae Week in Washington” about the diversity of problems algae cultivation can solve, the thousands of products that can be made with algae and the range of technologies being deployed by innovative entrepreneurs.
It’s a great read, and you may want to bookmark the post for anytime you need to give someone a quick education on the diversity and great potential of the algae industry.
