OriginOil receives Australian patent for algae harvesting technology

LOS ANGELES, US: OriginOil Inc, developer of a breakthrough energy production process for the oil and algae industries, has received its first international patent for its algae harvesting technology from the Australian 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 2010239380 in Australia for a term of 20 years beginning in 2010. In addition to the United States, it has also been published in the European Union and in Japan.

“Our value as a technology company increases with each patent that we file, and then with each patent that is granted. As a global technology company, patents in foreign territories are critical to secure our international reach and our position as a leader in the algae industry,” said Riggs Eckelberry, CEO, OriginOil.
