World Water Works to Distribute for OriginOil 2

World Water Works to Distribute for OriginOil

April 12, 2011

OriginOil, Inc. has announced that a process partner, World Water Works, Inc., has agreed in principle to distribute OriginOil’s dewatering and extraction systems to its global customer base. The agreement covers product integration, manufacturing and joint marketing.

“World Water Works is an innovative company with a first-class manufacturing facility in Oklahoma City, and one of their technologies provides an important concentration stage in our harvesting systems. This is a major first step in our plan to integrate the algae production process for our customers,” said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginOil CEO.

World Water Works’ Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) process separates suspended solids (flocculated algae) from the water by dissolving air into water under pressure. Upon release of that pressure, microbubbles form. These microbubbles interact with the particles to cause them to float to the surface of a vessel where they are skimmed off.

“In our first field tests at MBD Energy’s research facility in Australia, their algae-specific DAF process was highly successful in concentrating our client’s algae after our dewatering stage; and we will fully integrate it with our harvesting systems as part of our single-vendor commitment to our customer base,” said Scott Fraser, OriginOil’s VP/Operations.

“The OriginOil team are innovators, but they also know how to engineer solid devices that interface well with our systems,” said Mark Fosshage, President of World Water Works. “We are really pleased to be able to manufacture and distribute for them, and we also see potential opportunities for their technology in traditional waste water treatment settings.”
