NAALogoThe National Algae Association (NAA) has announced the schedule for their new online Algae Production Certification Course – designed to give an overall understanding for students, vets and algae enthusiasts interested in gaining knowledge in the new emerging algae production industry. Registration begins September 27, 2013 for this year’s 25 available spaces. Classes begin October 30, 2013.

The Course will encompass the major components needed to introduce individuals to the multifaceted concepts of strain selection, cultivation, harvesting, and bioproduction methods, as well as the economic considerations prevalent in the commercial algae production industry.

“There are so many products that can be made from algae, including nutraceuticals, omega-3 EPA/DHA, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, feeds, food, organic fertilizer and fuels,” said NAA Executive Director Barry Cohen. “As they say in Texas, you are using everything except the squeal, and there’s the added benefit of sequestering CO2.”

The NAA Algae Production and Certification Course is intended to continuously evolve and will be updated on an annual basis covering the latest commercial algae production technologies and methods.

NAA is also hosting a Commercial Algae Cultivation, Harvesting, Extraction Technologies and Networking Workshop, Friday, September 27, 2013, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, in Fairfield, New Jersey.
