ABOlogoThe Algae Biomass Organization (ABO), has announced the preliminary agenda for the 7th Annual Algae Biomass Summit (ABS), along with the roster of algae experts and leaders that will be discussing the latest advances in algae commercialization, research and finance at the industry’s largest conference. The agenda for the Summit, being held September 30-October 3rd in Orlando, Florida can be viewed at: algaebiomasssummit.org

Among the agenda highlights are updates on the full range of algae-derived products, from fuels to feeds and specialty chemicals. An opening panel on the latest developments in algae-derived biofuels includes Paul Woods, Chief Executive Officer of Florida-based Algenol Biofuels, and CJ Warner, Chief Executive Officer and President of Sapphire Energy. A second opening panel featuring companies commercializing high-value algae-based feeds, nutritional products and specialty chemicals includes Tim Burns, President of BioProcess Algae; Dan Simon, President of Heliae; and Mike VanDrunen, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Algix, LLC.

ABO said that Orlando was chosen for the location of the Summit due to the presence of some of the industry’s most promising companies in the region. The Southwest has also recently been shown to have ample land and saltwater resources required to support a robust algae industry.

“Algae is attracting more attention than ever because we are seeing, for the first time, new production facilities come on line and a growing array of algae-derived products, including biofuels, being offered to consumers,” said Mary Rosenthal, executive director of ABO. “Our meeting in Orlando will highlight the tremendous progress that algae entrepreneurs, researchers and investors have made around the globe. We expect announcements about new breakthroughs and deals in everything from algae fuel, fertilizers, feeds, and even services like wastewater treatment and CO2 emission remediation.”

The Algae Biomass Organization, a 501(c)(6) non-profit, produces the Algae Biomass Summit annually. The 2012 Algae Biomass Summit, held in Denver, Colorado, was attended by nearly 800 stakeholders across the industry from more than 20 countries.
