Good morning!

Algae Appliance™ Announced

They’re independent so we can’t vouch for what they say, but the latest update from Zacks Research has a catchy headline: “OOIL: Introducing the algae growers starter kit”!

Analyst Ian Gilson goes on to say: “The Algae Appliance…would be an excellent test bed for OriginOil’s full sized system.”

That’s true, and we’ve had tremendous response to our announcement. We’re racing to meet expectations.

(As always, the updated analyst report is available only to paid subscribers, but you may request a full copy by emailing

Algae-based Jet Fuel is Real!

For years we’ve been asked when algae would “end up in my tank”. Well, not yet, but right now it’s powering commercial jets, a huge industry milestone.

Congratulations to algae producer Solazyme, who inked a deal with United Airlines to supply them with 20 million gallons (76 million liters) of jet fuel made from Solazyme’s algae!

Europe’s Tough New Aviation Standards

Did you know that, starting New Year’s Day, all airlines flying into Europe will have to comply with tough emission standards, or pay stiff penalties?

That’s probably a big reason why on Monday, November 7, Continental Airlines flight #1403 flew from Houston to Chicago O’Hare on a “green jet fuel” derived partially from algae.

Read more about this in my Algae Business column in Algae Industry Magazine.

Cut to the chase, and here’s what I say: “In these tough new EU aviation emissions standards, algae-based fuel has finally found its first large-scale market opportunity.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

To those of you celebrating this special American holiday, I say let’s all give thanks to those who keep us safe, healthy and happy.

Whether you’re in America or elsewhere, enjoy the rest of the week!
