Oil is already over $80 a barrel. Do we need to wait for oil to go to back up to $150 a barrel or more again before we do something?
Algaepreneurs are sprouting up all over the US to address this issue. They believe that algae is one solution to help the US get off of foreign oil and are quickly moving technologies out of the lab and into commercial-scale production throughout the US. Algae research will continue but some existing proven technologies are being implemented today. Enhancements will surely come as algaepreneurs move into production. They are united in wanting the US to get off of foreign oil, creating jobs in the US and reducing emissions. Since our government and corporate America are taking their time and spending their money on research, algaepreneurs are taking on the task of doing it themselves. Many new algae production plants are scaling-up to produce biocrude and co-products.
We are pleased to announce the following additions to its agenda for the conference at the Doubletree Hotel Houston Intercontinental Airport:
Dr. Brian Goodall - newly appointed CEO of BioCentric Energy
Mike Vaughn- Millpore Corporation - applications that Millipore brings in cell research, bioprocess monitoring and lab water filtration
You do not need to be a member of the NAA (nationalalgaeassociation.com) to attend any of our events. All you need is an interest in collaborative sharing of information and know-how to help mold this new industry. If you believe the US needs to get off foreign oil, become energy independent and create new green jobs, please join us in Houston on April 29-30.
Exhibits will be permitted at this conference.
