Seattle, Sep 18, 2008 – The 2008 Algae Biomass Summit announced that Vinod Khosla, a nationally recognized clean technology investor and Managing Partner of Khosla Ventures will be the keynote speaker at the event, which takes place October 22-24 in Seattle. The Algae Biomass Summit, sponsored by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati and The Byrne Company, is the official conference of the Algal Biomass Organization (ABO). The event is designed to highlight scientific advances and encourage knowledge sharing to accelerate the development of algae-based solutions to global energy, environmental, and economic issues.

Khosla was selected to speak at the Algae Biomass Summit due to his extensive experience in funding and advocating for clean technology companies. His venture company Khosla Ventures has invested millions in clean technology start-ups in sectors including next generation fuels (Gevo, KiOR, Amyris, LS9), fuel-efficiency technologies (Transonic Combustion, Ecomotors), solar technology (Ausra), carbon sequestration (Calera) and in other sectors.

“Vinod is one of the pre-eminent visionaries in clean technology,” said Darrin Morgan, ABO Co-Chairman and the Director of Business Analysis, Environmental Strategy for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “His passion to see these new technologies succeed is surpassed only by his deep financial commitments.”

Khosla’s success has been recognized nationally as he was listed on Vanity Fair’s 2008 Sphere of Influence List and ranked in Forbes 400. Prior to starting his company, Khosla was a co-founder of Sun Microsystems and a partner with Kleiner Perkins Kaufield and Byers.

In addition to announcing Khosla’s participation, the ABO also posted the conference agenda, which features dozens of presentations from national and international technologists, producers, scientists, investors, and policy-makers. During the course of the event, these leaders and the hundreds of attendees will discuss issues of critical importance to the emerging algae industry, including the commercial viability of algae production, current government and private initiatives, evolving technologies, processing concepts, and venture and project finance.
