627 Advances in Algae Based Biorefineries - Algae Biomass Cultivation, Harvesting and Characterization

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
250C (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session focuses on (1) Novel cultivation methods necessary to grow algae on non-arable land, non-potable water, waste nutrient streams, waste carbon dioxide etc.; and other non-conventional Harvesting and dewatering technologies; (2) Algae strain development, with high growth rate and product content making algae biomass attractive for bio-refineries; (3) Characterization of algae biomass in order to develop cultivation management strategies, biorefinery processes, value-added byproducts, and downstream processes.
