Microalgae: Your Sustainable Source for Vital Nutrient Solutions

This session will bring together leaders in the microalgae industry to discuss their strategies to sustainably supply the food and feed ingredients needed to feed our growing populations. Microalgae offer a unique sustainability solution due to their fast growth and harvest cycles, as well as their ability to produce a plethora of essential compounds ranging from pigments to fatty acids to proteins and sugars. There is no limit to what can be done both cost effectively and sustainably with the diverse range of production technologies and organisms the microalgae industry has to work with. Our panel will focus on their success in commercialization of existing products, and what we can expect from the industry over the next five years. We will provide an opportunity to have discussion with industry leaders as to what is possible in the near term, and the not too distant future. If you are looking to source valuable ingredients from the microalgae industry, this session should not be missed.
