The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) will sponsor the Advanced Algal Systems Listening Session in Seattle, Washington. This event aims to bring together experts in the fields of algal biology, cultivation, and conversion to discuss how to address near-term research and development barriers and opportunities for cost competitive algal biofuels and bioproducts. Input will be sought on recent technology advancements in advanced algal systems and their potential to drive innovation in the bioeconomy. The Listening Session will begin immediately at the conclusion of the 8th International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts.
The agenda will be focused around facilitated round table discussions on opportunities and challenges in integrating algal productivity and biomass yield improvements in scalable algae cultivation systems to achieve high yields. Innovative strategies to increase the value of algal cultivation systems, such as bioproducts and environmental services, will also be discussed.
