Forbes.Com Features OriginOil

– “OriginOil Is All About Algae” article appears on first day of trading –

Los Angeles, CA – April 29, 2008 – OriginOil, Inc. (OTCBB: OOIL), the developer of a breakthrough technology to transform algae, the most promising source of renewable oil, into a true competitor to petroleum, commented today on Forbes.Com’s coverage of the company on 25 April, 2008, on its first day of trading.

“It is a sign of the times that Forbes.com chose to interview us on our first day of trading,” said Riggs Eckelberry, the Company’s founder and President. He continued: “High oil prices and the collapse of food-for-fuel initiatives worldwide have created a perfect storm for algae and there are still few public companies addressing the problem.”

Forbes.com stated: “With oil prices at record highs and ethanol production straining the world food supply, investors are eager looking for alternatives — and algae offers a two-in-one solution.” The article went on to discuss the company’s plans to target its unique technology at fundamentally changing our source of oil without disrupting the environment or food supplies.
