Algae: The New Oil

It's one solution to help the US reduce its dependence on foreign oil
and create new green jobs.

The algae industry is quickly moving technologies out of the lab and into commercial-scale algae production. Many new algae production plants are scaling-up to produce algae oil and biomass for co-products. Algae proven technologies are being benchmarked for commercial use and implemented today in the scale-up of the new algae industry. Enhanced research will surely continue as algaepreneurs move into commercial-scale algae production. Algaepreneurs are united in wanting to help the US get off of foreign oil, create jobs and help reduce CO2 emissions. Since the government is moving slow into commercial-scale algae production, algaepreneurs have taken on the task of scaling-up algae production farms throughout the US. The NAA Engineering Consortium has just finished the first 100 acre algae production plant (growing, harvesting and extraction) design in the US.

Algae oil is renewable, does not affect the food channel and consumes CO2. It's one solution to help the US reduce its dependence on foreign oil and create new green jobs.

The National Algae Association, a 501(c)6, is the first algae trade association in the US with chapters throughout the country to assist algaepreneurs create algae production plants to provide biodiesel producers with a renewable feedstock. Algae oil can be made into jet fuel, biodiesel, biogasoline and bioplastics. Algae biomass can be made into many different co-products such as nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and organic fertilizer.

Algae production plants are scaling-up to produce both algae oil and biomass for co-products. Algae research will continue but proven technologies are being implemented today in the scale-up of the new algae industry. Enhancements will surely continue as algaepreneurs move into commercial-scale algae production.

The algae industry is quickly moving technologies out of the lab and into commercial-scale algae production. Don't miss out on the opportunity to be involved in this emerging industry! You do not have to be a member of the NAA to attend or participate in any of our events. All you need is an interest in collaborative sharing of information to help develop turn-key algae production in the US as one solution to get the US off of foreign oil.
