RenewableEnergyStocks.com, a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within Investorideas.com, announces new featured showcase company OriginOil, Inc: (OTCBB: OOIL), an algae-to-oil technology company.
The company’s technology is an advanced algae growth system that can grow multiple layers of algae biomass around-the-clock with daily harvests. According to the company, growing and harvesting algae on a high volume production basis is the key breakthrough that will allow algae to compete with petroleum.
The US Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy reports, “Algal biofuels are generating considerable interest around the world. They may represent a sustainable pathway for helping to meet the U.S. biofuel production targets set by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.”
Petroleum is a depleting resource. Future sources of oil, the cost of producing it and the price consumers will have to pay for it are extremely uncertain. According to a recent report from the International Energy Agency, “there are growing fears the simultaneous plunge in oil prices and a pullback in spending on exploration and production will result in another massive energy price spike.”
One week earlier, Riggs Eckelberry, President & CEO of OriginOil, Inc. had made the same case. In his presentation to California lawmakers, he noted, “Energy demand is embedded and oil demand will return. If oil investment is neglected now, there will be new scarcity, driving prices much higher.”
“Climate change and CO2 emissions are also driving trends for renewable energy. These factors, as well as future oil shortages, have created excitement in the algae sector, in spite of the recent decline in oil prices”, Mr. Eckelberry went on to state.
“Current trends in energy supply and consumption are patently unsustainable – environmentally, economically and socially – they can and must be altered”, said Nobuo Tanaka, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency. “Rising imports of oil and gas into OECD regions and developing Asia, together with the growing concentration of production in a small number of countries, would increase our susceptibility to supply disruptions and sharp price hikes. At the same time, greenhouse-gas emissions would be driven up inexorably, putting the world on track for an eventual global temperature increase of up to 6°C.”

About OriginOil, Inc.
OriginOil, Inc. (OTCBB: OOIL) is developing a breakthrough technology that will transform algae, the most promising source of renewable oil, into a true competitor to petroleum. Much of the world's oil and gas is made up of ancient algae deposits. Today, our technology will produce "new oil" from algae, through a cost-effective, high-speed manufacturing process. This endless supply of new oil can be used for many products such as diesel, gasoline, jet fuel, plastics and solvents without the global warming effects of petroleum. Other oil producing feedstock such as corn and sugarcane often destroy vital farmlands and rainforests, disrupt global food supplies and create new environmental problems. Our unique technology, based on algae, is targeted at fundamentally changing our source of oil without disrupting the environment or food supplies.
