Algae Bloom Remediation Workshop
Dates: May 21-22, 2019 (Tues. & Wed.)
Broward County Library Downtown – Auditorium
100. S. Andrews Ave, Ft. Lauderdale 33001
The algae bloom situation is affecting tourism, fishing, real estate and local economies. While algae bloom research, testing and monitoring is ongoing within the State of Florida, collaboration and open communication on fixing the existing algae bloom and HAB problems need to be addressed. National Algae Association, is the first non-profit algae association to focus on education, production and algae bloom remediation trade association in the world, made up of commercially-minded algae researchers, producers, remediation and equipment companies in the US and throughout the world, would like to extend an invitation to your organization to become a sponsor for our Algae Bloom Workshop we are facilitating in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.
NAA has invited commercially-minded algae bloom researchers, remediation and equipment companies to discuss differences between algae blooms created by phosphorous and nitrogen as well as toxic hazardous algae blooms (HAB’s) to discuss the following subjects below to educate and address potential algae bloom remediation solutions using technologies that can be proven outside the lab and are scalable.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive.
