LOS ANGELES, US: OriginOil Inc has received its second international patent for its algae harvesting technology from the Japan Patent Office. The invention, titled “Systems, apparatus and methods of obtaining intracellular products and cellular mass and debris from algae and derivative products and process of use thereof,” was issued as patent number 5284536 in Japan for a term of 20 years beginning in 2010.

The company has received Australian patent for the same term. The application has also been published by the European Patent Office under the Patent Cooperation Treaty.

“This was when we first learned how to process algae for downstream applications, and we continue to be impressed with its continued relevance in all applications needing removal of organic particles from large amounts of water, including oil and gas. We have 19 active supporting patent applications in this area alone, and this remains a very solid foundation,” said Riggs Eckelberry, CEO, OriginOil.
