Aker BioMarine Antarctic AS announces that the assignment of Russian Patent No. 2460309 was published in the Official Bulletin for inventions on Sept. 10. The granted patent expires on Aug. 29, 2028, and contains claims that cover krill processing technology and krill-based products made by that processing technology. The covered products include krill oils and krill powders that contain krill proteins and phospholipids.
"After having seen the potential for krill oil products in other markets globally, we are pleased to announce that Aker BioMarine now has a patent foothold in the sizeable Russian market. It is also a confirmation to see that our inventions are considered novel and non-obvious over the prior art even in one of the pioneering countries of the krill trade,” stated Matts Johansen, COO of Aker BioMarine.
