668 Advances in Algae Based Biorefineries: Algae Biomass Cultivation, Harvesting, and Characterization

Thursday, November 17, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Lombard (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
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.
