IN BRIEF - OriginOil announces breakthrough innovation to increase algae yield

UNITED STATES
Tuesday, March 22, 2011

LOS ANGELES (CA) - 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.”

The company recently filed for patent protection of the new Algae Screen technology, its twelfth patent application, entitled “Enhancing Algae Growth by Reducing Competing Microorganisms in a Growth Medium.”

FRANCE
Monday, October 19, 2020

Los pescadores franceses podrían pagar para pescar en aguas británicas después del Brexit. Según un experto, los pescadores franceses podrían verse obligados a pagar por pescar en aguas británicas después del Brexit.

El primer ministro Boris Johnson podría facturar al presidente francés Emmanuel Macron millones cada año por los pescadores que quieren acceder a nuestras aguas.

GERMANY
Monday, October 19, 2020

India, Ecuador… or Bavaria? The third location might not seem like the obvious place to source vannamei shrimp from but Crusta Nova, a German agtech and seafood company, is producing 30 tonnes of them a year, from an RAS near Munich.

The company was founded in 2012 by Dr Fabian Riedel, a lawyer who decided to hang up his gown at the age of 29 to try something completely different.
“My former co-founder had fish ponds outside Munich and, having studied at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Weihenstephan, decided to farm yabbies [crayfish] in a small RAS,” he explains.
