BioLargo Inc (OTCMKTS:BLGO), an environmental engineering company and sustainable products developer, was named the “Cleantech Company of the Year” for 2019 by Sustain SoCal, a leading cleantech industry advocacy group in southern California.
The award was presented to BioLargo on Wednesday night at Sustain SoCal’s annual holiday gathering.
Sustain SoCal said BioLargo won the award because of its laser focus on developing “innovative solutions” to some of the “world’s toughest sustainability problems", including energy-efficient water treatment solutions, answers to the PFAS water contamination crisis and environmentally friendly air quality control solutions.
“BioLargo exemplifies a technology company paving the way toward solutions to environmental issues. We are proud and delighted to give this award to BioLargo for its hard work addressing serious sustainability challenges,” said Sustain SoCal President Scott Kitcher.
Westminster, California-based BioLargo has developed several innovative and patented products targeted at three markets: water and wastewater treatment, industrial odor and volatile organic compounds (VOC) elimination, and advanced wound care.
BioLargo operates four subsidiaries: Odor-No-More Inc, BioLargo Water Inc, BioLargo Engineering, Science & Technologies Inc (BLEST), and Clyra Medical Technologies Inc.
Delivering on its mission
BioLargo is an environmental engineering company with a simple mission “to make life better” when it comes to clean water, clean air and good health.
BioLargo CEO Dennis P Calvert said 2019 was a “tremendous year” for the company’s “burgeoning” sustainable cleantech products and services. He also thanked Sustain SoCal for recognizing the company’s progress.
“Our Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) clean water technology was deployed in several demonstration pilots where its energy efficient water treatment capabilities were proven in real-life settings," said Calvert.
BioLargo’s AOS technology to manage and treat water and wastewater combines highly energized iodine molecules with cutting-edge filtration materials to destroy bacteria and dismantle soluble organic contaminants.
Our engineering division developed a novel and powerful treatment technology with the potential to help solve the global PFAS contamination crisis, and began serving seven US Air Force bases with environmental engineering services,” said Calvert.
“Our odor and VOC control division hit record sales numbers, setting the stage for us to serve an ever-growing number of air quality customers in 2020. We also topped all this off with the successful FDA 510(K) clearance for our first advanced wound care product,” he added.
