The following may be one reason OriginOil has moved up 9 places on the Biofuels Digest "50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy 2010-2011."
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- OriginOil, Inc. (OOIL), the developer of breakthrough technology to transform algae, the most promising source of renewable oil, into a true competitor to petroleum, today announced Algae Screen™, a process that keeps algae healthy and productive by selectively eliminating microscopic predators without the use of chemicals. The technology employs an electromagnetic pulse, similar to what is used to achieve Live Extraction™. OriginOil will offer Algae Screen and Live Extraction in one integrated offering for growers.
"Much of our technology is based on the same underlying science, so it makes sense to create 'functionality hubs' to simplify field operations and create more value for producers," said OriginOil's CEO, Riggs Eckelberry. "We see much more integration activity as the algae industry matures."
