“We are very pleased with OriginOil’s flawless demonstration of its CO2 feeding and algae extraction systems to date,” said Andrew Lawson, MBD Energy’s managing director. “We are also impressed with the quality of the engineering and the expertise of the team as algae growers and harvesting specialists.”
“Completing this first phase is a major milestone for us. We are excited to move on to the next stage of our multi-phase commercialization program with our global partner, MBD Energy, culminating in the deployment of OriginOil systems in full-scale power plant operations,” said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginOil CEO.
Earlier this year, MBD became OriginOil’s first customer for the first of progressively larger systems to serve its three major power station projects in Australia. According to MBD Energy, each of its power station projects has the potential to grow to 80-hectare commercial plants, each capable of producing 11 million liters of oil for plastics and transport fuel. MBD Energy estimates that, subject to performance and joint approvals, the projects have potential at full scale to consume more than half of each power station’s flue-gas emissions.
