6th Congress of the International Society for Applied Phycology

[PAST EVENT] - Event date: 06.18.17

After Almería-Spain in 2002, Kunming-China in 2005, Galway – Ireland in 2008, Halifax–Canada in 2011 and Sydney-Australia in 2014,  the committee presiding the International Society of Applied Phycology (http://www.appliedphycologysoc.org/) decided to trust a scientific team of western France to organize the 6th congress of the society in Nantes at La Cité Nantes Events Center from June 18th to 23rd 2017. Indeed, with over 300 people working in its universities and research centers and more than 100 businesses, Western France is a European hotspot for the transfer and industrial development of marine biotechnology (Marine Biotech in Western France).

Previous ISAP Congresses have seen the role of applied algal biotechnology and their potential developed in a commercial, remedial or regulatory context. In 2014, the theme of ISAP was chosen to reflect on the actual successes of algae applications as they already represent a sustainable and relevant field of biotechnology.

In 2017 the scope of the 6th edition of ISAP congress is to appreciate the huge phycological biodiversity and the diversity of its biotechnological applications through the prism of a new and promising industrial sector in full development. The Congress will include speakers and posters presentations, exhibitors and for the first time a BtoB session to meet the right partners.

Now that the European Commission has released its plans for biofuels post 2020 with RED II, the industry can plan and prepare accordingly. Opportunities undoubtedly still remain as the sector evolves taking new legislation into account and renewable energy targets must still be met with governments committed to reducing their country’s GHG imprint.

Biofuels will continue to play a crucial role in the fuel supply chain with current and new producers looking to improve their processes and search for new markets, whether that be aviation, marine or vehicle biofuels.

The 10th anniversary edition of the leading Biofuels International conference & expo, for the first time held in partnership with Bioenergy Insight conference & expo, will focus on the latest developments in biofuels policy, international biofuels trading, sustainability, solutions for first generation producers, progress in advanced biofuels and information on feedstock pricing and trends. 

With over 200 attendees over 2 days of high level presentations and discussions it is an excellent opportunity to engage with the market and to highlight your company’s products and services.

Innovation in Aqua Feed

Event date: 12.04.17

Formulated feeds are an important component of the farming process for a number of key aquaculture species. But producers are no longer focused only on feed conversion in relation to fish feed R&D.

This event will dive into how feed experts are trying to understand the ways nutritional components affect blood chemistry, immune responses, and gut microbiota in fish. It will address how precision nutrition, the right feed formula at the specific life stage or period of the year, is an approach increasingly used in the aquaculture sector.

The FeedNavigator “forum” concept has been developed by our editors to feature the most innovative and thought provoking companies and personalities in the modern animal feed industry and provide fresh insight into the issues shaping the market via a more interactive format.

This series of digital discussion forums will delve into hot topics that can easily be viewed from your computer live or on demand.
