OTC Disclosure News Service

OriginOil Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL),
developer of Electro Water Separation™ (EWS),
the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of
water, announced today that it has launched the Smart Algae Harvester™
line of low-energy algae concentrators, on the heels of a live
demonstration to attendees of a National
Algae Association
(NAA) workshop in Lafayette, Louisiana. (video)

The first model in the new line is the A25,
a workhorse algae harvester designed for scale-up testing and initial
production. It can process up to 25 liters per minute, or up to 36,000
liters (about 10,000 gallons) of algae cultivation water every day,
producing a viable concentrate with extended shelf life, for a wide
variety of applications, including nutritionals. Add-on units are
planned to further concentrate the harvested algae, and also to
pelletize it for feed.

Nicholas Eckelberry, co-founder and chief research officer, demonstrated
the new Smart Algae Harvester A25 following his presentation
at the NAA workshop. The new unit drew praise for its solid design,
advanced controls and highly effective harvesting capabilities.

Al Szur, Managing Member of Natural
Algae Production
, a company in the NAA incubator program, stated,
“I’ve had the opportunity to see the older machine operate. The new
machine… we will be harvesting with it, it’s like going from grammar
school into college.”

Stuart Gardiner, a rancher and Area Range Conservationist with the USDA,
also said, “The new OriginOil harvester for microscopic algae is
impressive. We are familiar with the older model and this seems to be a
substantial improvement over that. We’re impressed, and as soon as we
get up to the scale to where we have a large amount to harvest we’re
really looking forward to utilizing it.”

And Steve Herman, CEO of Sustainability
, added, “We are a startup company out of Wisconsin,
partnered with St. Cloud State University, and we’ve been growing algae
for about 4 months now. This harvester is the only one we’ve used,
because the University said they’ve gone through many different ones
over the past 10 years and they said this is the one to use. So we took
their advice and it works great.”

Next, OriginOil plans to launch a smaller, lab-scale algae model for
researchers, with the full participation of the researcher community. In
initial surveys, 67% of industry insiders surveyed said that a lab-scale
harvester would be “Very” or “Extremely” Useful.
