Generating Clean Energy with Algae

OriginOil, Inc. and Paris-based Ennesys are engaged in a joint venture to test OriginOil's newly-introduced entry-level Algae Appliance, the Model 4 unit, to convert algae into renewable crude oil. Located in the iconic La Défense complex near Paris, the program aims to demonstrate that algae can help achieve eco-sustainability for large building complexes.
OriginOil's Model 4 is designed to process up to four liters (about a gallon) of dilute algae water per minute, intermittently or continuously, without the use of chemicals, into an algae concentrate. This low-energy process can help generate clean energy for a building complex while also helping with water purification.
