You are at: Oilgae Blog.
A company called Origin Oil from Los Angeles has come up with technology to speed up the process or turning algae into oil, and this endless supply of new oil can be used for many products like diesel, gasoline and jet fuel.
Vikram Pattarkine is the Chief Technology Officer with Origin Oil. He says the company had other offers to work with businesses but chose the INL. He says instead of drilling for oil, the company can now make clean, new oil anytime, delivering a revolutionary breakthrough to the world.
The goal for the lab and origin oil is to develop this technology to where it can become a commercially viable product for use in bio-fuels and put a dent in the need for petroleum.
