The Algal Biomass Organization has officially changed its name to the Algae Biomass Organization. The board and executive director recommended the change to better reflect the term that most people use and associate with our industry.

According to an ABO spokesman, “As the industry moves out of exclusively academic and lab settings into the commercial and consumer markets, ‘Algae’ is becoming a topic of discussion in the public sphere like never before.”

The ABO will be hosting the Algae Biomass Summit in Denver, September 24-27, 2012. For more information: www.algaebiomass.org
