Each year the Algae Biomass Summit provides tours of algae facilities that offer priceless opportunities to see the latest technology developments this dynamic industry. Get a first hand look and meet those making new advances possible.

All virtual Summit attendees qualify for free attendance at online tours of these cutting-edge algae operations:

Gross-Wen Technologies: Algae Wastewater Treatment:
September 11 at 10:00 am CT


Wastewater treatment is one of the costliest parts of running any city. ABO member Gross-Wen technologies (GWT) has developed a revolutionary method to grow and harvest algae for the purpose of nutrient recovery in wastewater treatment.

The system utilizes a Revolving Algal Biofilm (RAB) system which uses a partially submerged belt that provides an ideal surface for algae to grow on while taking up nutrients. The system then periodically collects the algae off the belt for easy, low cost capture of the nutrient rich algae.


Join us for a tour of GWT’s demonstration facilities to learn more about how GWT and the RAB Algae system are radically changing the way wastewater treatment plants can best meet the goals of recovering nutrients and vastly improving our environment! A video tour will be followed by a live Q&A session with GWT leaders.

Synthetic Genomics: Biofuels with Algae:
October 2 at 10:00 am CT


Algae have great potential to be an invaluable source of sustainable biofuels. Synthetic Genomics is a recognized leader in the adaptation of microalgae as cell factories to produce sustainable and renewable diesel and jetfuel from sunlight and CO2, growing in saltwater where the production does not compete with agriculture or put additional burdens on freshwater consumption.


Find out the latest from Synthetic Genomics, get a look at their facilities and meet members of their team. A video tour will be followed by a live Q&A session.
