Algae Event Calendar

Seagriculture @ Terneuzen, netherlands
Sep 24 – Sep 25 all-day

The third edition of the International Seaweed Conference will take place in Terneuzen in Zeeland, the only place in the Netherlands where seaweed is actually produced. Additionally, a visit to Zeewaar is planned on the second day.

Zeewaar means Sea Truth as well as products from the sea. It is the first and still only sustainable cultivator of Dutch seaweeds in the natural environment. In July 2013 the seaweed farm launched in the Eastern Scheldt, a natural park in Zeeland where the endemic seaweed is produced.

Discover the business opportunities. The seaweed chain will be explored with knowledge transfer opportunities between companies and ongoing science. Both plenary and bilateral sessions are planned.

8th International Algae Congress
Dec 2 – Dec 3 all-day

After many decades of research into microalgae as an important raw material for food, feed and fish farming the cost aspect remains the main bottleneck. The potential of micro-algae and aquatic biomass is huge, but what solutions are there for hands to earn back the high costs?

Microalgae contain large amounts of lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates, all of which can be used for different high end applications. Residual products can be sold as biofuels, reducing the cost of production. Biorefinery can ensure that quality products can be isolated and after that sold. Currently, many eyes are the biorefinery process and the developments aimed to obtain financial viable applications. During the 8th International Algae Congress these developments will be discussed.

The 8th International Algae Congress in Belgium will also address new developments in algae production and harvesting. Most ongoing projects utilize the classical biotechnology method. The cultivation of algae with CO2 and a food source. What possibilities does the new biotechnology ring to algae cultivation? Are we going to algae grow in the dark in the future as to reduce costs? During the congress themes such as aquaculture, Non food products, nuclear contamination and upscaling will be discussed.

The 8th International Algae Congress will take place in Belgium on 2 and 3 December 2014. More information on the website:
