The 6th International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts

We’ll be exhibiting at the conference this year in San Diego. Come find our booth to see how our PBR101 can help your research.

“The conference will cover all areas of emerging technologies in all areas of algal research, including microalgae, macroalgae, and cyanobacteria: biology, biomass production, cultivation, harvesting, extraction, biorefinery, feedstock conversion into fuels, bioproducts, and econometrics and sustainability analyses. This year the program will include special sessions on the latest progress reports from consortia groups and industry.”
