OriginOil develops one-step process to get oil from algae

Energy Current – April 21, 2009: "According to OriginOil, initial testing indicates that the new algae oil extraction process is simpler and more efficient than current systems, without requiring chemicals or significant capital expenditure for heavy machinery. After the algae goes through the process, in less than an hour, the oil, water and biomass separate by gravity alone. Unlike conventional systems, no initial de-watering is required."
