OriginOil, a biofuel technology developing company, engaged in the process of developing and producing biofuel from algae, declared that it has been chosen by Sustainable Resources Incorporation (SRI) to construct a new, advanced algae center entirely dedicated to commercialize the use of algae.
The proposed advanced algae centre will be located in Roswell, New Mexico, where US Department of Energy was once keeping its Aquatic Species Program from 1978 to 1996. The place with abundant sunshine and low cost of production offers an ideal location for algae growth. The place is strategically located in between major algae research centers located in California, Arizona and Texas and remains close to a number of eminent algae production facilities such as Native American nations and National Laboratories at Sandia and Los Alamos. The new algae center once it comes in to existence in the middle of 2011 will provide engineers, algae researchers and producers an exclusive, protected and zealous surroundings to continue their research and testing processes on wide algae varieties before letting them for commercial usage.
Brian Goodall, CTO of OriginOil, has said that like his company, a number of algae companies are looking for resources to test their technology and product while continuing to maintain control over their product. He added that the integrating of technologies from a number of vendors in a single convenient location has generated tremendous interest. He concluded saying that the proposed facility will not be influenced by the technology owned by the company and his company will endeavor to provide an open environment to facilitate any one to start from the beginning.
