originoillogoOriginOil, Inc. has announced that AlgEternal Technologies, LLC, will incorporate OriginOil’s technology to harvest algae as a key component of the company’s proprietary algal production system. AlgEternal Technologies has developed a highly efficient vertical growth, algal culture photo bioreactor (PBR) technology for maximized commercial production of high-quality algae for the wholesale commercial algae production market worldwide.

“With their new EWS-powered Algae Appliance™,” said Hugh Morris, COO and founder of AlgEternal, “OriginOil provides reliable, efficient, clean, scalable, harvesting technology. AlgEternal took the bottleneck out of high volume algae growth with the capability to send 13,000 gallons of green water a minute and 192,000 gallons per acre to the OriginOil harvester with no power usage.”

AlgEternal’s patent pending, closed loop, Vertical Growth Module (VGM™), has undergone seven years of research and development improvements. The current system incorporates critical features including CO2 delivery protocol, maximizing the rates of CO2 capture, as well as an aggressive algal growth rate during all seasons of the year with temperature ranges from below freezing to over 100° F. AlgEternal worked closely with industry partner Georg Fischer Piping Systems, a division of worldwide leader for piping transport systems, Georg Fischer, LLC, to design and produce the VGM™ systems.

Morris chose OriginOil’s harvester because it met their high standards, with the capability to provide a low-bacteria, live cell paste directly from the green water, with no pre-concentration required, at high speed, with low cost and high energy efficiency. The sanitized paste resulting from OriginOil’s technology provides for a long shelf life, allowing extended time for shipping or utilization in downstream products.

“This selection as the preferred harvest technology of choice, by a company that is as well researched and deeply respected as AlgEternal, is validation of the highest order for us at OriginOil,” said Marlene Stewart, OriginOil’s global sales manager.
