Carrying on the tradition begun earlier this year at the OriginOil System Pilot Launch event, OriginOilMax event guests enjoyed algae martinis and raw treats while discussing the future of the industry and OriginOil’s ever increasing role in it.

At the event, OriginOil CEO Riggs Eckelberry welcomed loyal and prospective investors to see the MAX ONE up close.

“Every algae strain out there has its own extraction profile, and there are thousands of strains,” he said. “This is a great chance to document all the different strains which will help us roll out through partners worldwide.”

“Algae can’t succeed as a biofuel without an economical and energy-efficient way to harvest it,” said Eckelberry. “That’s why algae companies are eager to test our process as soon as possible. Now we can pull up in the trailer, process their algae, and analyze it for them on the spot.”
