Westminster, CA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioLargo Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), an innovator of sustainable science and technology and a full-service environmental engineering company, announced today the completion of a study that demonstrates the effectiveness of its Advanced Oxidation System (“AOS”) water treatment platform for treatment of poultry wastewater and municipal tertiary wastewater. The study was partially funded by the Metropolitan Water District (“MWD”) of Southern California’s Innovative Conservation Program (“ICP” - http://mwdh2o.com/ICP). A report of the study’s conclusions can be found online at MWD’s ICP website, http://www.bewaterwise.com/ICP_projects.shtml.
To highlight some conclusions in the report, the AOS was shown to:
- Be at least 50% more energy-efficient in comparison to incumbent technologies (U.V. and Ozone);
- Be forecasted to involve far less maintenance cost than chlorination; and
- Could present an effective and cost-efficient alternative to market-available tertiary treatment technologies, and stands to afford major water and cost savings to the Californian municipal wastewater market.
These results complement the AOS’s prior proof-of-claim results that prove the AOS can:
- Completely remove polyaromatic hydrocarbons;
- Inactivate 6 logs of bacterial pathogens (Salmonella enterica and Escherichia coli);
- Inactivate 4 logs of virus surrogate; and
- Remove naphthenic acids (up to 80% in single pass).
BioLargo President and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Calvert commented, “This report demonstrates the enormous cost and water recycling benefits the AOS will have for end-users. We recently acquired a world-class team of engineers (www.BioLargoEngineering.com), to provide problem-solving solutions for clients and support the scale-up and commercial preparation for the AOS already underway. We are also evaluating a number of strategic alliance, public funding opportunities, pilots and customer opportunities for our AOS technology.”
