Welcome and Speed Networking


Chairman’s Remarks

MicroBio Engineering, Inc.

Practical Experiences in Algae Production / Value Proposition in Carbon Capture


Succeeding in the Algae Business – Moving Away from ‘Or’ to ‘And’

- Moving from 'or' to 'and': No longer raceway 'or' photobioreactor, should be raceway 'AND' photobioreactor, also algae for fuel 'and' feed 'and'...

- What business model to adopt?
- What markets to serve?
- Project implementation challenges
- Infrastructures required
- Building partnership and alliances
- Outlook of the algae sector and end-use markets

Value Proposition in Waste Water Treatment


Wastewater Treatment with Biofuels Production in High Rate Algal Ponds (HRAPs)

- Benefits of wastewater treatment with HRAPs including efficient nutrient removal and natural disinfection
- Enhancing the performance of HRAP by flue gas CO2 addition
- Production of colonial algae simply harvested gravity settling
- Conversion of algal biomass for biofuels (biocrude, biodiesel, biogas) and use as local community niche distributed energy sources

National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)

Large-scale Algae Biofuels Production with Municipal and Agricultural Wastewaters

- Algae Biofuels Production: limitations of water, carbon and nutrients
- Using wastewaters to supply algal biofuels production processes
- Economics of large-scale algal biofuels production using wastewaters
- Global potential for algal biofuels production using wastewaters.

China: Genetic Foundations of Robust Oil Production in Microalgae – New Generation Genomics Technologies for Algal Feedstock Development

- Current status and challenges of oilgae feedstock research and development
- Phylo-Genomics approach to investigate and engineer the genomic diversity, function and evolution of microalgal oil production using Nannochloropsis as a model

Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT)

Will Ocean be the Blue Ocean for Future Fuels? – Development in Korea

- Why we should use ocean (not land) for our future biofuel production
- Possibilities and challenges in microalgal cultures in ocean
- Cost analysis between the cultures in the ocean and on the land
- Introduction of Korean National Project on Marine Bioenergy Program


Development of Algal Biofuel Production in Australia

- The need for biodiesel in Australia and the role that algae plays.
- The myriad choices for the Australian algal fuel producer:
- Algal species - GMO/wild/selectively bred; Growth in ponds or photo-bioreactors; salt-water, fresh-water or waste-water as the medium; Natural or artificial light;
- Energetics and greenhouse gas emissions of algal biofuel production

Development of Bioethanol Production Technology from Red Macroalgae


Enhanced Biofuel Production from Microalgae by adding CO2 to Stimulate Lipid Biosynthesis (Biodiesel) and by Hydrothermal Processing (Syngas)

- Research aims to improve the efficiency and reduce the production costs of biodiesel and of bio-synthetic natural gas from microalgae biomass by:
- Demonstrating the technical and economical feasibility of an innovative process for syngas production by hydrothermal processing of microalgae
- Adding CO2 and optimizing the cultivation conditions to enhance oil production by selected microalgae
