Farming tilapia in the Coachella Valley since September of 1993, Aqua Farming Tech is the definitive leader in the industry.Â
LOS ANGELES –Â OriginOil, Inc., developer ofÂ Electro Water Separationâ„¢, the high-speed, chemical-free way to clean up very large quantities of water used by the oil & gas, algae and other water-intensive industries, announced today it will establish a permanent technology showcase atÂ Aqua Farming Technology, a leader in sustainable fish farming since 1993 in Californiaâ€™s Coachella Valley.
â€œAt Aqua Farming Tech, Rocky French operates a 120-acre model of sustainability,â€ saidÂ Riggs Eckelberry, OriginOil CEO. â€œWeâ€™re honored that heâ€™s working closely with us to set up a permanent showcase within driving distance of our headquarters in Los Angeles.â€
â€œWeâ€™ve hit the limit of what we can do in our Los Angeles lab,â€ saidÂ Nicholas Eckelberry, OriginOil co-founder and chief inventor. â€œWe need lots of algae and big fish ponds to demonstrate how our systems work. Beyond that, industry groups already fly in to view Rockyâ€™s sustainable practices, which gives us a very high profile. I canâ€™t wait to get to work with him.â€
In addition to hosting the commercial showcase,Â New Global EnergyÂ (OTC/QB: NGEY), owner of the Aqua Farming tech site, will help OriginOil develop sales prospects in the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere, taking full advantage of Rocky Frenchâ€™s extensive industry network.
â€œThis is a win-win for all parties,â€ said Perry West, Chairman of New Global Energy. â€œOriginOilâ€™s systems will help show off our tools to relaunch the Coachella Valley fish farming industry, and OriginOil gets its full-scale demonstration site. We plan to invite aqua farmers from all over the world to visit the site and see for themselves.â€
In June, OriginOil demonstrated at the Aqua Farming Tech site (seeÂ video) that by adopting OriginOilâ€™sElectro Water SeparationÂ (EWS), farms can free up valuable land lost to filtration ponds, and reduce or eliminate expensive chemicals and antibiotics. The system also allows fish farmers to quickly harvest algae and pelletize it for highly nutritious and cost-effective fish feed.
