Cellana Inc. Key Developments

Cellana, Inc. and Living Ink Technologies Enter into Joint Development Agreement for Sustainable Algae Inks

Cellana Inc. and Living Ink Technologies announced that they have signed a letter of intent for the joint development and commercialization of inks containing Cellana's renewable algae biomass. Living Ink's sustainable algae-derived ink is 100% plant-based, renewable and biodegradable. The majority of the ink is algae, turned into ink, and applied to paper. This novel ink will replace conventional ink that uses petroleum products and other finite chemicals, most of which are toxic. Cellana will supply Living Ink with whole algae biomass from its Kona Demonstration Facility, and Living Ink will formulate inks and be the route to market. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Cellana, Inc. and PIVEG, Inc. announced that they have signed a letter of intent for the joint development and commercialization of Omega-3 oils and other high-value applications from algae biomass.  Currently, Cellana produces industrial-scale quantities of ReNew Algae — high-value algae biomass rich in Omega-3 nutritional oils, proteins, fuel-grade oils, cosmetic-grade oils, acids, and polysaccharides, as well as other valuable micronutrients — at its Kona Demonstration Facility in Hawaii.  With facilities in Mexico, Peru, and the United States, PIVEG currently produces and sells a variety of high-value pigments and other products derived from diverse natural sources, including marigold, chili peppers, and algae.  Initially, Cellana will supply PIVEG with material from its Kona Demonstration Facility, and PIVEG will use its existing processing equipment and facilities in Central Mexico while the parties explore the development of larger-scale commercial algae biomass production facilities in Hawaii and Mexico.  Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
