Intellectual Property /Patents Surrounding Cellana’s Technologies
Cellana’s ALDUO™ process is covered by issued patents and patent applications.
- U.S. patent #5,541,056 , Method of control of microorganism growth process, Huntley et al., issued 7/30/96, concerns a method for growing aqueous microorganisms in a transparent photosynthetic reactor, aka photobioreactors (PBRs), wherein a turbulent flow regime is maintained. This broad patent was held valid in U.S. federal court when a third party challenged it in the 1990s.
- U.S. patent #7,770,322, Continuous-batch hybrid process for production of oil and other useful products from photosynthetic microbes,” Huntley et al., issued 8/10/10, concerns Cellana’s unique dual cultivation process using both photobioreactors and open ponds.
