Press release

Algae Commercialization, Research and and Business Networking Forum

January 29-30, 2009

The National Algae Association announces its Algae Commercialization, Research and
Business Networking Forum. We are the first algae trade association in the U.S.
Algae researchers, existing algae oil production companies, algaeprenuers and potential investors will present leading-edge technologies for the fast track commercialization of the Algae industry. The NAA brings algae researchers and companies together to share ideas and exchange information to overcome technological hurdles.

Current high oil prices, the collapse of food-for-fuel initiatives and concerns
about increased levels of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere have all created awareness
of the need for alternative fuel solutions. Algae is renewable, does not affect
the food channel and eats C02 which can be processed and refined into a variety
of transportation fuels. (i.e., jet fuel, biodiesel, biogasoline).

Recent breakthroughs in raceway pond development and closed-end loop photobioreactor
systems (PBR’s) put algae oil production companies on the leading-edge of the renewable oil industry. The U.S. needs to get off foreign oil, become energy independent and create new green jobs.

When: January 29-30, 2009
Where: The Sheraton North Houston (ask for special NAA rate)
George Bush Intercontinental Airport
15700 JFK Blvd.
Houston, Texas
(281) 442-5100

Call for Presentation and Papers

January 29-30, 2009

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. Due to the
high cost of oil, commercializing the algae oil industry is now 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.If you are working on algae and you have an innovative or breakthrough technology you would like to present to a large group of biofuels producers, scientists, researchers and potential investors, you are invited to submit your presentation for review for the next National Algae Association event on January 29-30, 2009. We are seeking presentations from experienced subject matter experts, organizations, institutions and scientists with applied knowledge in biology, biochemical engineering, plant physiology, petrochemical or refinery engineering, mechanical/process design engineering, and entrepreneurs who can effectively communicate scientific knowledge into business language for biofuels producers, investors and other entrepreneurs. If you would like to be considered as a speaker, please submit your presentation and papers at your earliest convenience.

Also, if you are interested in becoming a group leader for research, operations,
extraction or financing teams, please let us know.
