Australia has officially granted Los Angeles-based OriginOil patent #20102380, for their Single Step Extraction™ system. The patent application was filed in April 2009, three months after OriginOil’s Co-Founder and Chief Inventor Nicholas Eckelberry discovered the process.

The patent title is: “Systems, apparatus and methods for obtaining intracellular products and cellular mass and debris from algae and derivative products and process of use thereof.”

“As we continued to learn more, we filed more patents — to date, more than a dozen in this area alone. They are at various stages of the US and international filing and granting processes,” said Riggs Eckelberry, CEO of OriginOil.
