OriginOil Demonstrates Low-Energy Algae Appliance to National Algae Association
NAA workshop attendees view latest algae processing technologies (video, photos)
Los Angeles, CA February 7, 2012 – OriginOil, Inc. (OTC/BB: OOIL), a leading developer of next-generation technologies to produce transportation fuels, chemicals and foods, announced today it demonstrated its low-energy Algae Appliance™ to industry executives from a workshop hosted by the National Algae Association (NAA) at the University of Southern California.
OriginOil also showed new technologies in development in the lab, and the Max One mobile algae harvester. A video and a photo gallery of the event can be viewed at http://www.originoil.com/latest-news/national-algae-association-tours-originoil.html
“This is the first time in the USA that an industry group has seen our Algae Appliance, and we are very pleased with the feedback,” said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginOil CEO. “We showed an early version of the system last August to an industry group in Australia – and now we’re live in the USA!”
The Algae Appliance is a low-energy, chemical-free, continuous-flow ‘wet harvest’ system that can remove up to 90 percent of the water in which algae lives. Dewatering algae is considered a major barrier to commercial algae production. OriginOil released the system in October 2011 as an algae harvesting “starter kit” for producers the world over who are exiting the laboratory phase.

“We are very pleased with the attendees’ interest and enthusiasm for our current and upcoming products,” said Ken Reynolds, OriginOil vice president of marketing. “We developed several potential sales and strategic partnership opportunities as a direct result of this event, and we plan to schedule more of these demonstrations of our breakthrough technologies to this fast-growing industry.”
