Algae provides one solution to help the US reduce its dependence on foreign oil and create new green jobs. Algae oil is renewable, does not affect the food channel and consumes CO2. It can be made into jet fuel, biodiesel, biogasoline and bioplastics. Algae biomass can be made into many different co-products such as nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and organic fertilizer.

In this talk our co-presenters Barry Cohen and Will Thurmond will discuss both the technology and the commercial framework for the New Green Crude. Don’t miss this exciting introduction to one of the most promising groundbreaking energy technologies of the 21st Century!
