Why are we so obsessed with algae here at AlgaeLab? Because algae are amazing, and everyone should know about what they can do! They enable a new kind of agriculture that can be done almost anywhere and is incredibly productive, even in small spaces. They can be grown using minimal resources, and flourish as they clean up waste water and combustion exhaust. They can produce a vast array
of products, and their economic potential exceeds that of all of agriculture existing today. In the last several years, dozens of new algae companies have plunged hundreds of millions of dollars into research and development – so jump on in, the water’s green!
We are algae experts here at Algae Lab, so if you want us to develop a product we don’t have, or need expert consulting, please let us know (we are friendly scientists): http://www.algaelab.org/contact/
We are working on writing a book on growing algae, algae science trends & technology, and aquaculture from micro to large scale. We teach workshops at various levels, from beginner to advanced. If you are interested in hosting and organizing workshops in your area or for your organization, please contact us.
