4. Algae Technology Development In Asia Pacific
5. Current & Future Development Of Algae-Based Bioenergy

Participants can look forward to hearing industry experts share their insights and practical experiences in algae production, including established algae producer Necton S.A., who started the production and sale of microalgae for aquaculture and cosmetic applications since 1997. Necton S.A.'s spin-off company AlgaFuel currently owns the largest outdoor photobioreactor in Europe dedicated to algae for energy and carbon mitigation.

Carbon emitting industries like cement manufacturers and power producers have started to realize the potential of algae as carbon capture solution. St Mary's Cement and West Bengal Power Development Corporation will be sharing their experiences of using algae to reduce their carbon emission. Also speaking is MBD Energy Ltd., who has reached agreements for the planning and provision of pilot CCR plants with three of Australia's major coal-fired power stations.

Dr John Benemann, a world renown algae expert will talk about Algae Biofuels Production with Municipal and Agricultural Wastewaters.

CMT's 3rd Algae World Asia is also a platform for several Algae Research Groups to present the latest algae technology developments in the Asia Pacific region. Speakers include top researchers from Genome Institute of Singapore (Singapore), Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (China), Inha University (Korea), and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Australia).

To bring into focus the current and future development of Algae-based bioenergy, delegates can expect first-hand updates from Aurora Biofuels Pty Ltd, OriginOil, Biolsystems Co. Ltd, Institute of Technology (EPFL) LausanneSwiss Federal, KPMG Corporate Finance Pte Ltd.

In conjunction with the 3rd Algae World Asia event, CMT has just released the Algae World 2010 Industry Survey Report. The report provides insights on where the industry stands and identify critical gaps in knowledge. The survey report findings, once again computed and analyzed by Dr. Mark Edwards, Director of Green Independence.org & author of Algae World's first survey report launched in 2008 provides new insights on the Algae value chain.
