GS bioE to use OriginOil’s algae harvesting technology

LOS ANGELES/WOODBINE, US: OriginOil Inc, the developer of a breakthrough water extraction process for the oil & gas and algae industries, and Garden State bioEnterprises LLC (GS bioE), an emerging technology provider to the wholesale commercial algae production industry, announced that GS bioE has adopted OriginOil’s harvesting technology as a key component of its proprietary production system for the high-value product Astaxanthin.

In a recent trial, GS bioE concentrated its algae with an OriginOil Algae Appliance and then successfully stressed the cells into Astaxanthin-bearing product. “Being able to concentrate the algae that makes Astaxanthin is a potential game-changer for our industry,” said Andrew Greene, President, GS bioE.

“We are very pleased with the successful results of our recent trial of OriginOil’s Algae Appliance. By deploying the OriginOil Algae Appliance, we were able to harvest the algae to a 5 per cent solids concentration while keeping the algae cells viable. We were then able to stress them successfully into an Astaxanthin-bearing product,” added Greene.

“We are satisfied with the performance of the Algae Appliance. Together with its ability to reduce bacteria, we expect its proven harvesting capability to give us a competitive edge in the production of natural Astaxanthin as we plan to make it a key component of our state-of-the-art Astaxanthin production system,” said Greene.
