Photon8 is in the business of producing biodiesel from algae, profitably. Armed with genetically-improved algae, patent-pending, low-cost PFRsm growth system and cell-viable extraction (CVEsm) technology, the company is positioned to deliver the first profitable, and therefore scalable, renewable fuels solution. Outside reviewers recently proclaimed the company as having “the first realistic approach” and “in the top-echelon of algae ventures”. Currently in its first year, the company has exceeded its expectations in lab-scaling its solutions, and is filling its $6.5M “A” round which will take the company through test plant production. The test plant will demonstrate the exact equipment, processes, and product quality experienced in production.

The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) is the Australian Government's trade and investment development agency. We help Americans and Australians do business – and offer international investors a single, integrated point-of-contact for all investment inquiries.
Austrade is implementing a three year Clean Energy Trade and Investment Strategy, aimed chiefly at attracting investment into Australia's clean energy sector; to fill capability gaps; to help demonstrate and commercialize technologies; and to help Australia meet its 20% Renewable Energy Target by 2020 (around 80% of our electricity is coal generated).
In 2009 the Australian Government announced a A$4.5 billion Clean Energy Initiative which included a A$1.5 billion Solar Flagships program and almost A$500 million for an Australian Centre for Renewable Energy.
Austrade would like to speak with investors at the event regarding Australian investment opportunities and how we can help - our investment facilitation services are free and commercial-in-confidence.

Colorado Lining International, Inc. provides and installs membrane lining systems for algae raceway and production ponds. 15 years ago, our group co-developed the most economically viable membrane liners used in algae raceway pond applications. We have provided millions of square feet of material for algae applications and understand the economic constraints confronting algae biofuel & biomass production. CLI constantly researches the most cost effective options and co-develops alternatives. We are familiar with all membrane lining materials and can offer more options than any other provider. We have partnered with others in algae harvesting research and we can also provide anaerobic digestion systems.

Fluid Imaging Technologies, Inc. manufactures FlowCAM®, a continuous-imaging algal cell and particle analyzer that combines the speed of data acquisition typical of cell analyzers with the detailed individual cell information typical of microscopy. The FlowCAM automatically produces clear digital images in color or monochrome. Researchers and technicians can identify and analyze particles, algal cells and organisms using thirty different image parameters. Intuitive VisualSpreadsheet© software facilitates rapid analysis of cell data and sophisticated pattern recognition operations for algae identification. The FlowCAM® is used in the biofuels industry for yeast viability studies, algae classification, lipid analysis via staining and florescence, live and dead population analyses, algae growth concentration, algal growth rate monitoring and bioreactor contamination monitoring.
