originoillogoOriginOil, Inc. has announced that, after successful implementation and testing at its Weimar, Texas site, algae technology company AlgEternal will integrate OriginOil’s Electro Water Separation™ (EWS) into its commercial algae production platform for paying customers in the US and overseas.

AlgEternal selected OriginOil EWS technology after exhaustive testing demonstrated that EWS Algae systems harvest algae at the highest level of efficiency, and effectively control bacteria in algal paste to facilitate a long shelf life, while producing a live cell harvest.

“After evaluating OriginOil’s products, our technical team felt that OriginOil had a novel, scalable, and potentially game-changing technology to harvest and process algal biomass into commercially viable products,” said Hugh Morris, AlgEternal’s COO. “We are excited about the opportunity to work closely with them as a partner during our research, planning and commercial deployment stages. Our expectation is to have the Commercial Algae Production Platform yielding revenue late this year.”

“The Culture Collection of the University of Texas in Austin has been working with AlgEternal, and together we have completed the development of commercial fertilizers for use in large scale algae production,” added Morris. The Culture Collection is now preparing to validate the excellent production results from the novel AlgEternal Opti-Max Model 580MP bioreactor. We intend full commercial scale production capacity by the first quarter of 2014.”

OriginOil plans to support AlgEternal’s commercial efforts by providing its technical expertise to deploy commercial size harvesting solutions in full integration with AlgEternal’s proprietary algae growth systems called Vertical Growth Modules (VGM™).

“We intend to help AlgEternal’s Commercial Algae Production Platform develop a leading role in the production of algae for biofuels, organic animal protein for food products, animal feed, aquaculture feed and nutriceuticals, which could create long-term economic growth and local jobs in hundreds of communities in the United States and worldwide,” said OriginOil Global Sales Manager Marlene Stewart.
