The Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) will be hosting a webinar May 9, 2013 at 2pm ET on the impacts on water resources that may come with the expansion of the algae industry. Leading algae scientists from the San Diego Center for Algae Biotechnology and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will discuss the ability of algae to grow in salt water or wastewater, and the geographic availability of these resources for commercial algae production.

Speakers for the session will be Dr. Stephen Mayfield, Director of the San Diego Center for Algae Biotechnology at UC-San Diego; Dr. Mark Wigmosta, Chief Scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; and Dr. Erik Venteris, Spatial Modeling Research Engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Mary Rosenthal, Executive Director of the Algae Biomass Organization will moderate the webinar. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
