Scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego will be featured prominently at the upcoming Algae Biomass Summit in San Diego.

The eighth annual event, Sept. 29-Oct. 2, 2014, at the San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina, will present the latest breakthroughs in algal biology research from around the world, including new advancements at Scripps, UC San Diego, and across the San Diego region.

“The ability of algae to provide us with sustainable fuels, feeds, and other products without depleting our freshwater supplies or our farmland has sparked more interest in this industry than ever before,” said Greg Mitchell, a research biologist at Scripps and chair of the conference’s program, in announcing the summit. “San Diego has more algae industry activity than any other city in the world, and we expect the 2014 summit to draw on that community as well as a broader international group of scientists, entrepreneurs, and Fortune 100 companies.”
