Flask to Fork: The Growing Wave of Innovation in Algae for Health & Nutrition

Global consumers are increasingly demanding healthier, more sustainable foods and smarter ingredients. Leading algae innovators are stepping up to meet these demands with exciting new product offerings. Will consumers embrace algae as the new ultra-sustainable superfood? This session takes us inside the latest market trends and algae product innovations, and looks ahead to opportunities and challenges in human health and nutrition.


Getting from Feed Trial to Farm: Opportunities and Challenges for Algae Feed Ingredients

Algae are getting plenty of attention from aquaculture and animal feed suppliers for their attractive protein, oil and other nutritional attributes. But getting from feed trial to fish farms and farmer co-op shelves is no easy road to hoe. This panel brings together algae technology developers, industrial partners, regulators and other stakeholders for a look at how to go from idea to adoption in fish and animal feed markets, and what it will take for algae to emerge as a major player in this multi-billion dollar market.


Cashing in on Carbon

The past year has seen a wave of endorsements for algae and other microbial approaches to mitigating industrial carbon emissions. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Billion Ton Study Update quantified for the first time the strong domestic opportunity for algae-based carbon capture; a global engineering giant launched an algae-based carbon utilization platform; and the National Coal Council called for greater investment in algae and other utilization technologies. What will it take to realize the potential of these technologies? Panelists will present their perspectives on the state of technology, policy, and the path to market adoption. 


Financing the Next Wave of Algae Innovation

Whether for carbon capture or wastewater treatment, fuel, food or feed, the common challenge shared by all algae technology developers is securing financing. This panel assembles a diverse mix of public and private, early- and late-stage investors to share insights on the current investment landscape and the keys to financing future algae endeavors.
