The Algae Industry Awards recognize excellence in the following areas and the 2020 winners include:

Innovation Collaboration of the Year Award – In recognition of a partner collaboration that raises the visibility and impact of algae products globally 

Corbion and BioMar

The partnership between Corbion, a leader in sustainable ingredient production, and BioMar, a leading innovator in sustainable aquaculture feeds, served as the tipping point for industry adoption of algae omega-3s. Corbion was the first to produce a long chain omega-3 ingredient at scale – AlgaPrime™ DHA – and BioMar was the first aquafeed producer to incorporate microalgae at scale. Since launching in 2016, the partnership has changed the aquaculture landscape – as of June 2020, BioMar had sold over 600,000 tons of feed containing AlgaPrime™ DHA into Norway alone.  Salmon fed AlgaPrime DHA has been on store shelves from Walmart to Tesco to Whole Foods.

Unsung Hero Award – For unheralded dedication and career contributions to the growth of the algae industry

Darin Debina, Spirulina Pond Field Technician, Cyanotech Corporation, Cyanotech Corporation, 24 years of service

AND

Warren Pai, Harvest Processor Technician, Cyanotech Corporation, Cyanotech Corporation, 25 years of service

Together Mr. Pai and Mr. Debina have grown and harvested tons of Spirulina and Haematococcus for Astaxanthin at Cyanotech Corporation in the open ponds on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. 

Mr. Debina daily feeds the algae growing in 500,000-liter outdoor race-away ponds, caring and monitoring their growth and health.  It is rumored he often points his telescope (located on his lanai,) at the ponds to check in on the algae “just to make sure they are doing ok when he is not on site.”  His career-long dedication to the industry and Cyanotech is valued and respected.

Mr. Pai and his family have ties to this area, and in a way, he continues to carry on a long family tradition of aquaculture. Because harvesting algae is a 24/7 operation, over the years, Warren has experience on every shift and is often called on by coworkers for his knowledge and expertise. He is a key part of the Cyanotech enterprise.

With almost 50 years of combined service at Cyanotech, and with that, almost 50 years of combined knowledge of cultivating and harvesting microalgae, Warren Pai and Darin Debina, are the giants on which the success of the algae industry has been built  They are the frontline workers who spend many hours around the clock and working in the grueling Hawaiian sun, feeding and harvesting the algae.  Their careers have literally contributed to the growth of the microalgae industry.  They helped create an aquaculture farm that has grown from a few acres to a now massive 90-acre production facility.

Lifetime Achievement Award – For contributions to the algae industry over the whole of a career in academia and/or industry, including commercial success, significant research contributions, policy activities, outreach, workforce development/educational activities, and/or mentoring activities.

Dr. Gerald R. Cysewski, Founder and CEO, Cyanotech Corporation

Dr. Cysewski’s microalgae story began in his garage, where he grew Spirulina as an experiment. He received his doctorate in Chemical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.  At the time, Spirulina was growing in popularity and was primarily being imported to the US health food market.  He recognized the opportunity to produce a higher quality and cleaner product.  Dr. Cysewski also had the foresight to realize that this particular microalgae had great potential grow in carefully controlled, consistent environments.  So, in 1983 he founded Cyanotech, and through much hard work and dedication, his dream of producing microalgae for health and human nutrition in a sustainable, reliable and environmentally sensitive operation came to life.  Cyanotech now grows two algae, Spirulina and Haematococcus for Astaxanthin on 90 acres on the Kona Coast, is a publicly held company generating more than $30 million in annual revenue and employs approximately 100 people.

Through Cyanotech,  Dr. Cysewski has not only created many non-tourism jobs on the Island, he has advanced research on the benefits of algae for human consumption, achieved Generally Recognized as Safe status for Spirulina and New Dietary Ingredient status for Astaxanthin, taking two algae from benchtop to full scale production to bulk ingredient supply and into a brand.  Beyond these significant accomplishments, Dr. Cysewski is known as a scientist who leads with his heart.  He is an extremely compassionate individual who truly cares for all of the Cyanotech Ohana (family).  He represents Cyanotech’s values of; Integrity, Well Being, and Ohana.  Dr. Cysewski will leave a legacy as a world leader in microalgae and the mission of fulfilling the promise of Whole Health through Hawaiian microalgae.

Champion of Algae Award – For exceptional contributions to growing the algae industry through professional service

Senator Tom Udall

For over 10 years, Senator Tom Udall has given the industry exceptional contributions through his service in the Senate that have directly or indirectly supported the growth of the algae industry.

Senator Udall has long been a supporter of the algae industry, and particularly advanced biofuels. In 2009, he supported the planned algae biomass production facility in Columbus, New Mexico, which was a first of its kind facility in many ways, including the duel funding from a Department of Energy (DOE) grant and a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) load guarantee. In 2011, he introduced the Renewable Fuel Parity Act of 2011, a bipartisan initiative to provide legislative parity for algae-based biofuels in the Renewable Fuel Standard to incentivize further use of algae biofuels. In 2018, Senator Udall filed an amendment to the 2018 Farm Bill outlining algae ag research program priorities that demonstrated key bipartisan, bicameral support for the proposal (although this amendment was not included in the final bill).  

Senator Udall has also championed the DOE’s algae biofuel research program, which has been funded at a $30 million or higher level for the past decade. The DOE algae biofuels programs laid the groundwork for many other successful products for algae, and that work continues to drive scale up and costs down. His continued support for this DOE funding also enables the programs in work force development through the Algae Foundation, and in particular in his home state at Santa Fe Community College (SFCC). This workforce development program is a core part of SFCC’s vibrant training program in preparing our students for careers of the future. The SFCC Algae Cultivation program has trained 2 cohorts of algae farmers; all the graduates have either matriculated at a 4-year university or found full-time employment with benefits.

Because of Senator Udall’s support, the algae industry has thrived and grown to what it is today. We thank Senator Udall for his service – we would not be where we are today without his service and support.

Leadership Through Service Award – For exceptional contributions to the growth of the algae industry through volunteerism and service

Chris Cassidy, USDA

Mr. Cassidy is the National Business Renewable Energy Advisor for USDA National Office in Washington D.C. He formerly served as the Regional Renewable Energy Coordinator for Western and Pacific Region, the Director of Business and Cooperative Programs for USDA Rural Development, and was the USDA Renewable Energy Coordinator for Washington State. He served on the task forces that designed, implemented, and provided technical reviews for the Renewable Energy Sections of the 2002, 2008, 2014, and 2018 Farm Bills. Mr. Cassidy has been actively engaged in business, agriculture, technology, and renewable energy development activities for three decades, has served in technical management capacities for multiple global organizations, such the United Nations, and the World Bank on 5 continents.

His dedication to rural and community development has made him an enthusiastic and committed supporter of algae. Mr. Cassidy has said that USDA’s mantra of “Do right and feed everybody” makes algae a clear fit to all of the agency’s priorities in the bioeconomy feed chain.  For well over a decade, Mr. Cassidy has been consistently, humbly and steadfastly working toward an algae future we all envision: one where algae creates job, provides sustainable, regenerative solutions to our climate issues, feeds our population and our livestock, and does it in a way that positively impacts rural communities and our national economy. Much of this effort can be seen in the culmination of the 2018 Farm Bill, where algae was included as a crop for the first time.

The tangible impact of Mr. Cassidy’s quiet but longstanding and very effective support in his role at USDA is that we are making this envisioned future a reality.

Outstanding Contributions to the Industry 

Matt Carr, Green Capitol, LLC

Dr. Carr’s five-year tenure as Executive Director of ABO was punctuated with major legislative wins in the 2018 Farm Bill and passage of 45Q amendments to the tax code, acknowledging and institutionalizing algae’s future role in feeding the planet and mitigating climate change. Matt’s tenure on Capitol Hill as an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow and other legislative experience prepared him to lead ABO in these preeminent achievements. This was just part of the challenging task of transitioning ABO and the industry from our early emphasis in fuels to today’s much broader scope in sustainability, ecosystem services, materials, and much more. The fruits of these efforts are now at hand and will continue to shape the algae industry for years to come. In his time at ABO Matt was the ultimate ambassador for “all things algae”.
