ABO announces preliminary agenda for October Summit

June 5, 2018

The Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) has announced the preliminary agenda for the 12th Annual Algae Biomass Summit, being held in The Woodlands, Texas, October 14-17, 2018. The sessions will feature the latest advances in algae commercialization and research and the growing impact they are having on food and nutrition markets, agriculture, carbon and water management, energy and more.

“We’re looking forward to bringing algae industry leaders from all over the world to Texas, where some of the most successful approaches to deploying algae cultivation at commercial scales are being demonstrated,” said Matt Carr, executive director of the Algae Biomass Organization. “The Summit’s agenda is more diverse than ever, covering just about any market and any application for a new generation of algae farmers, scientists and entrepreneurs that are building value and addressing some of the world’s greatest challenges.”

In addition to plenary sessions on the most pressing topics facing the industry, the conference will feature dozens of presentations in breakout sessions organized into four tracks:

  • Biology: Featuring the latest research discoveries and innovations about how algae grow, and how they can be harnessed to address global challenges or create new products.
  • Commercialization, Finance & Policy: Updates from entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies that are deploying algae into the market, as well as investment opportunities and bipartisan policy support for algae in Congress and state legislatures.
  • Engineering & Analysis: Addressing the latest techniques for cultivating and processing algae at commercial scales.
  • Products & Markets: A new Summit track focusing on the latest products that are made possible with algae, and how they can upend traditional options.

The Summit’s exhibit hall will offer opportunities to see algae technologies up close, and also includes a Product Showcase with examples of the hundreds of algae-based products already on the market. More than 100 posters will be on display showcasing groundbreaking new technologies, research and commercial breakthroughs.

The 2018 Summit comes as ABO member companies have accelerated the pace of product commercialization in the past year, introducing new and more sustainable aquaculture feeds, nutritional supplements, algae-derived plastics and foams, food ingredients, and more.
