OriginOil is a pure technology company. We plan to embed our breakthrough technology into the industrial algae systems and oil & gas water cleanup systems that others build, distribute and operate.
Algae is the logical successor to petroleum and has added potential in nutrition and pharmaceuticals. Algae will be produced everywhere CO2 is generated – making it a truly distributed source of energy.
The world will make algae and will continue to face problems with dirty frack and produced water flowback. How will we deliver our technology to the world? The answer is to integrate our technology with the systems others build and distribute.
“Powered By OriginOil”
Large manufacturers, distributors and engineering service companies will gear up to serve the world’s algae producers and refiners, and to help solve the problems of oil & gas frack and produced water.
We’ll make our breakthrough technology available everywhere these companies operate by embedding our technology in the systems they sell. We won’t have to spend the time and money to develop our own manufacturing and distribution infrastructure. And we’ll avoid competing with our natural partners, creating a much better chance that our technology will become widely used – and profitably licensed.
Naturally, before you can embed a technology, you have to prove it. That’s why OriginOil is working with strategic partners who will help scale up its technology and prove it in the field.
Department of Energy – Idaho National Laboratory
OriginOil and the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory (INL) announced a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) on 17 February 2009. Phase 1 was completed on 7 October 2009, with Phase 2 and Phase 3 currently under design. OriginOil is collaborating with the DOE regarding the development of a blendable algae feedstock standard.
“Algae represent a potential key biomass resource for a sustainable bioenergy industry,” said Tom Ulrich, INL senior advisory scientist. “Collaboration with OriginOil has been encouraging, especially the modeling of their algae growth and production process. Phase 2 of the CRADA will focus on further process validation, economic modeling and improved biomass logistics for the scale-up of algae biomass production.”
On 9 May 2012, OriginOil announced a Joint Venture partnership with PACE Engineering. Based in Southern California, PACE is a specialized civil engineering firm delivering advanced water resource solutions. The collaboration will focus on oil field operators in Texas and elsewhere to improve petroleum recovery and water cleaning for re-use at well sites, using a process originally developed by OriginOil for algae harvesting.
On 11 May 2011, OriginOil announced a joint venture with UK-based incubator PJC to form Ennesys, a system integrator focused on algae production to meet The European Union’s environmental regulations.
France in particular has mandated that all major buildings achieve a positive energy balance by the year 2020. Ennesys is working with Global 500 clients such as Bouygues Construction to evaluate the integration of waste water algae production as a means to comply with these new green building standards.
Research Institute of Tsukuba Bio-tech Corporation (RITB) is an OriginOil partner since 9 December, 2009. In August 2012, RITB reported receiving government funding for an ambitious algae biofuels program to provide renewable fuels and help eliminate radioactive materials, for which it intends to use OriginOil algae harvesting technology systems at more than 100 sites. Headed by Tsukuba University professor emeritus and algae researcher Takaaki Maekawa PhD, RITB is an institute focused on aircraft fuel production, algae to oil production, and other industry applications.
On 3 May 2012, OriginOil and Algasol Renewables announced that they intend to collaborate on the development of an integrated algae growth and harvesting system. By bundling their products, the two companies plan to achieve new levels of cost and performance in micro algae cultivation for biofuels and high value products. Based in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Algasol Renewables is a technology company with a unique patented technology for low-cost cultivation of micro algae for biofuels and high value products.
