ABO releases Industrial Algae Measurements 6.0

January 26, 2014
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

The Technical Standards Committee of the Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) has released version 6.0 of their Industrial Algae Measurements guidance document, which recommends minimum descriptive parameters and measurement methodologies required to fully characterize the economic and environmental inputs and outputs of an aquatic biomass operation. Voluntary adoption of uniform language and methodologies will, says the ABO committee, accelerate industry growth and unify research.

The Industrial Algae Measurements 6.0 recommendations contained within this document are intended to be useful in characterizing a broad range of aquatic production operations.

The ABO is primarily focused on the production of eukaryotic algae (both macro and micro) and cyanobacteria (blue-green algae). However, the cultivation of alternative aquatic crops such as duckweed or other photosynthetic organisms will also benefit from the information provided in this document because many of the environmental inputs and outputs are common.

The language and methodology recommendations in this document will also serve heterotrophic algal cultivation, algal-bacterial binary systems and multi-trophic systems that employ higher organisms to harvest or otherwise enhance value.

ABO Technical Standards Committee authors of this document are:

Dr. Lieve Laurens – Committee Chair, Algal Research Scientist, National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Dr. Keith Cooksey – Committee Co-Chair, Environmental Biotechnology Consultants, Professor Emeritus, Montana State University; and ABO Board Member

Jim Sears, New Product Development, Boulder Labs Inc., Former ABO Committee Chair and CTO, A2BE Carbon Capture LLC.
