Upcoming Algae Biomass Summit to showcase road to commercialization

Considered the world's largest algae conference, the summit will serve as a platform for more than 30 presentations by algae industry professionals, global business leaders and government officials.

These sessions will look at a wide variety of commercialization paths for algae-based products such as fuels, animal feed, nutritional products, bioplastics and chemicals.

"An impressive array of companies and researchers will present at this year's summit addressing innovation and advancements to commercialization across the value chain and markets for algae products," said Mark Allen, Vice President of Integrated Carbon Solutions at Accelergy and Chair of the Summit's Commercialization Track.

 "Their presentations promise to reveal how algae derived foods, fuels and products can continue to be offered to new customers. Increases in cultivation yields, harvesting techniques and innovative product design are bringing these alternative products to a wide spectrum of customers," Allen said.

Highlights from the Road to Commercialization presentations will include:

  • Tales from the Other Side: Crossing the Valley of Death in the Algae Industry by Nick Donowitz, Director, Corporate Development, Heliae;
  • Shifting Focus From Fuels to Foods: How to Enter the Food, Feed, and Nutraceutical Markets by Greg Sower, Manager, ENVIRON International Corp;
  • Enhancing the Economic Model of Algal Bio-Products by Dil Vashi, Manager, Corporate Development, Solutions4CO2 Inc.; and,
  • A Place for Algal Biofuels Within the Energy-Water-Food Nexus by Philip Pienkos, Principal Group Manager, National Bioenergy Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory .

The Innovation on the Road to Commercialization track is one of three tracks, plus plenary sessions and posters, which comprise the agenda for the Algae Biomass Summit.

In total, there are expected to be more than 110 live presentations during the Summit. The 2012 Algae Biomass Summit was attended by more than 800 stakeholders from more than 25 countries across the algae industry. Organizers expect an even larger turnout for this year's event.
