Expert briefings on Dunaliella's Glycerol production by Professor Ami Ben Amotz, commercial production of Astaxanthin by Dr Oran Ayalon from AlgaTechnologies and Tony Dowd from Asta Supreme, form the backdrop of new avenues in high value products from algae. Novel cosmetic products from algae by Heliae Development LLC and omega 3 enriched oil from algae by Fermentalg SA will provide techno economic insights into these new opportunities.

On the technology front the 6th Algae World Asia also examines production of algae oil using Hydro Thermal Liquefaction (HTL) technology by Loxley Public Co. Ltd., Biomass conversion technologies by NXT Fuels, Marine bioenergy project, and Korea's governmental project on developing a novel technology for large-scale microalgal cultures in ocean. The conference also assesses advances in Indonesian and Indian algae based projects.
