The National Algae Association is growing at an astronomical rate. We are the first national trade association for the algae industry in the United States, and we have doubled in size just in the last three months. We had very informative presentations from algae researchers and algae companies at our conference in July. People from 25 states, 4 countries and 8 universities registered for that conference. Due to the high cost of oil, commercializing the algae oil industry is now put on a fast track. We need to get off foreign oil and to bring back energy security to the US. Collaboration, innovation and commercialization are the motivating factors of our organization.
