New Plenary Session Announced for ABS 2016: Cashing in on Carbon

The Algae Biomass Organization has announced the newest plenary session for the 2016 Algae Biomass Summit: Cashing in on Carbon. The plenary session, which will take place on the third day of the conference, Tuesday, October 25th, will address algae-based carbon capture and carbon utilization technologies. The past year alone has seen a wave of endorsements for algae and other microbial approaches to mitigating industrial carbon emissions: the U.S. Department of Energy’s Billion Ton Study Update quantified for the first time the strong domestic opportunity for algae-based carbon capture, a global engineering giant launched an algae-based carbon utilization platform, and the National Coal Council called for greater investment in algae and other utilization technologies. A variety of panelists with deep expertise on the topic will present their perspectives on the state of technology, policy and the path to market adoption.

Panelists include:

  • Mark Allen, Vice President of Integrated Carbon Solutions, Accelergy Corporation
  • Raffi Mandirosian, Vice President, Joule Unlimited
  • David Hazlebeck, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Global Algae Innovations
  • John Benemann, MicroBio Engineering Inc.
