Nicholas Eckelberry is a creative genius who succeeds by connecting academic research silos. He laid the foundation for OriginOil in 1988 when he first worked with Japan’s Hideto Uematsu on the breakthrough OHR MX static mixer system which led to the granting of mechanical patent US 6,279,611 (28 Aug 2000) for the mixing of fluids at a microscopic level. This technology has since been implemented at some 2,000 sites in the Japanese waste water industry, and led to the development of Quantum Fracturing, OriginOil’s first patent filing for making CO2 more bio-available to algae cultures. In 2003 Nicholas launched Nano-Cal, a product line based around a uniquely formulated and highly bio-available form of calcium.
As co-founder of OriginOil in 2007 through the present, Nicholas Eckelberry has authored or co-authored thirteen patent applications in the field of algae production and commercialization.
Michael Green is a veteran CTO and engineer in Technology, IP Development and Field Operations with diversified experience in alternative and renewable energy, biotech and automotive fuels. He has been instrumental in research and development for many OriginOil technologies, and has been named as co-inventor on several of the Company’s patents.
Mr. Green is a patent specialist, and lead inventor or team participant on 21 U.S. and International Patents. He received three industry innovation awards while CTO at Vehicle Enhancement Labs. Green is also a technical consultant for various other biofuel and waste to energy companies.
A U.S. Army veteran who worked with nuclear missiles, Michael Green has a Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Design and a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Loyola University of Los Angeles.
