BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), a company that creates and commercializes sustainable technologies to solve tough environmental and cleantech challenges, announced that retired career senior executive at the US Environmental Protection Agency Sally Gutierrez has joined the board of directors of its subsidiary BioLargo Equipment Solutions & Technologies, Inc. Ms. Gutierrez will bring over thirty years of experience developing water regulations at the state and federal level to the BioLargo team to assist the company in its efforts to commercialize its innovative water treatment technologies for emerging contaminants such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

Ms. Gutierrez has been a career senior executive for the EPA for over twenty years. She has held key positions within the EPA, primarily within its Office of Research and Development (ORD). She has held the title of Director for numerous offices within the EPA’s ORD, including the Environmental Technology Innovation Cluster Development and Support Program, the National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL), and the NRMRL Water Supply and Water Resources Division. She also served as a Senior Water Advisor for the ORD Center for Environmental Solutions and Emergency Response and the Acting Director of the Water Permits Division within the EPA’s Office of Wastewater Management in Washington, DC.

In joining the board of BioLargo Equipment Solutions & Technologies, Ms. Gutierrez will assist the company in achieving expanded adoption of its innovative technologies in the water industry by helping navigate the rapidly changing regulatory environment surrounding newer issues in water treatment such as PFAS contamination.

Ms. Gutierrez was drawn to join the company’s board specifically because of the significant potential for its innovative PFAS treatment solutions to safeguard American drinking water and remediate badly contaminated water around the country, an issue she says is deeply important to her.  “Of all the environmental challenges I have tackled in my career, PFAS contamination is one of the most serious public health issues,” Ms. Gutierrez commented. “BioLargo’s AEC technology stands apart as a solution that offers an effective alternative to more traditional technologies for management of PFAS especially in regard to waste generation.”

“My goal is to help BioLargo bring its PFAS treatment solution to communities across the country and make sure that every American city and town has access to safe drinking water,” said Ms. Gutierrez.
