To continue commercialization and scale-up efforts by the algae production industry, the National Algae Association is offering its Algae Production Certification program and Commercial Algae Production Growing, Harvesting and Extraction Networking Workshop Oct. 19-20 in The Woodlands, Texas.

Attendees can expect to learn about algae strains, growing, harvesting, extraction technologies and economics. The focus will be on progress in commercial growing, harvesting and extraction methods, along with proven technologies that are ready for commercial-scale algae production.

Topics of interest at the event include how to start commercial algae farms; development and testing techniques for commercial-scale algae production; biocrude and biomass coproducts; life-cycle analysis; comparison of commercial-scale technologies; design, development and testing of growing, harvesting, extraction and fermentation techniques; nutrients and CO2 levels; logistics; and economic and market analyses.

The event will also include a tour of the NAA Test Center.
