Singapore has a clear focus in becoming the Asian hub for the life sciences arena with the highest number of regional headquarters setting up base here. Yet the influx of MNCs has not inspired a similar growth trend for local startups in the industry. What is it going to take to be a startup success story? Sulastri Kamis finds out from Clearbridge Accelerator's Managing Partner Johnson Chen.

CMT's 3rd Algae World Australia in Adelaide on August 26 to 28, 2013, is the region's project leaders’ event, presenting timely updates on algae developments and projects aligned with the nation's growing emphasis on energy independence

ADELAIDE, Australia – Australia is accelerating its algae developments, tapping on its pro-algae cultivation environment including abundant sunshine and optimal climate. This year, CMT's Algae World series will be held in South Australia as the zone surges in the race towards commercial algae biofuels production. With Muradel's pilot plant shifting to Whyalla, South Australia is bound to spearhead algae R&D, becoming the key hub in the region. Other key players with projects in South Australia include Algarythm and SARDI.

Top executives from these three SA players as well as University of Queensland, Aurora Algae, Photonz Corp. and MBD Energy are some of the top speakers confirmed participating at 3rd Algae World Australia, each to share project updates and insights.

Another highlight of the 3rd Algae World Australia is a segment on macroalgae & microalgae advances for high value products, cost-effective bio-crude oil production, sustainable aviation biofuels and wastewater treatment.

Speaking on advancements in algae-based wastewater treatment, in particular US and Japan perspectives are industry-renowned leaders from SARDI, Flinders University, University of Tsukuba and GO2 Water, including Dr. Jason Tanner and Prof. Makoto M. Watenabe.

International aviation leader Qantas Airways will also speak on new developments in sustainable aviation biofuels, and Prof. Wei Zhang from Flinders CMBD will elaborate on sustainable biorefinery technologies for macroalgae HPV. Expanding on new microalgae developments are top researchers from Murdoch University and University of South Australia.

The value-added conference also includes two optional & exclusive site visits to University of Adelaide: Tour of Chemical Engineering Lab and SARDI Aquatic Sciences & Flinders University. Participants can look forward to first-hand experience and insights on industry-leading open-pond algae systems as well as micro- & macro-algal R&D facilities.
