Algal technology company Aquaflow Bionomic Corporation announced today that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Impulse Devices, Inc (IDI) of California.

IDI, which was founded in 1999, has become the world leader in high-pressure cavitation performance as well as being at the forefront of developing the technological capacity required for acoustic inertial confinement fusion (Acoustic ICF).

Aquaflow director Nick Gerritsen says the companies intend to work together to develop next generation technology to produce low-cost, renewable energy and chemicals, among other applications.

“This is another example of Aquaflow pushing the envelope and not simply sitting back and accepting some status quo view of the algae biomass sector. It is significant for a New Zealand-based company to continually attract and develop top tier international support and collaboration,” he said.

“We are committed to making algae-derived fuels and chemicals a reality in the very near future. The ability to experiment and potentially apply the Impulse Devices’ technology may lead to faster advancement and the development of another pathway.”
