In Minnesota, the Algae Biomass Organization reports that during the course of 2012, ABO added more than 150 new members for 2012 and 2013, including 99 that signed up during the Algae Biomass Summit this past September in Denver, Colorado.
ABO further stated that their new memberships reflected a wider range of industries in 2012, driven by the increasing impact of algae technology as an economical and environmental source of sustainable fuels, chemicals, food and other valued-added products. New members included representatives from a range of industries, including United Airlines (aviation), The Scouler Company (agriculture), Duke Energy (energy), Church & Dwight (consumer packaged goods), SABIC (chemicals and fertilizer) and Mars Symbioscience (food & nutrition).
