National Algae Association: 2009 ADVANCED CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS AND PAPERS
 
The National Algae Association is growing at an astronomical rate. We are the first national trade association for the algae industry in the United States. Due to the high cost of oil, commercializing the algae oil industry is now put on a fast track.  Algae is renewable, does not affect the food channel and eats C02.  It can be converted into fuels such as jet fuel, biodiesel, ethanol, biogasoline and biomass that can be used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, bio-plastics and organic fertilizer. 
 
We need to get off foreign oil and to bring back energy security to the US.  Collaboration, innovation and commercialization are the motivating factors of our organization. 
 
We are now requesting algae research and company presentations in order to commit to an agenda.  If you would like to be considered as a speaker, please submit your presentations and papers at your earliest convenience.   Also, if you are interested in becoming a group leader for research, operations, extraction or financing teams, please let us know.
 
Research & Development Groups by Topics and areas of interest:
 
Group 1 - Algae Species Selection
Species selection for high oil/lipid content and yields for biodiesel
Species selection for high starch content and yields for ethanol
Species selection for high tolerance for variations in light, temperature, etc
 
Group  2 - Algae Production Systems
Improved selection criteria for C02, N02, and Nutrients in PBR and pond systems
Technology process improvements, breakthroughs, innovations in PBR lighting
Technology process improvements, breakthroughs, innovations PBR and pond harvesting systems
Technology process improvements, breakthroughs, innovations for post-processing drying and paste systems
 
Group  3 - Algae Extraction Technologies
Technology process improvements, breakthroughs, innovations for algae oil extraction

If you are working on algae and you have an innovative or breakthrough technology you would like to present to a large group of  biofuels producers, scientists and researchers and potential , you are invited to submit your presentations for review for the next National Algae Association event on January 28, 2009.  We are seeking presentations from experienced subject matter experts, organizations, institutions or scientists with applied knowledge in biology, biochemical engineering, plant physiology, petrochemical or refinery engineering, mechanical/process design engineering, and entrepreneurs who can effectively communicate scientific knowledge into business language for biofuels producers, investors, and entrepreneurs.

We are planning for the biggest conference to date and we need to start preparing for it now. Submit presentations and papers to:
National Algae Association
4747 Research Forest Dr., Suite 180
The Woodlands, Texas 77381
