BioLargo Inc (OTCMKTS:BLGO), an environmental engineering company, said Tuesday that third-party lab tests run by Southern Air Solutions Corp (SAS) showed that its patented CupriDyne Clean industrial odor and volatile organic compounds eliminator was effective in eliminating hydrogen sulfide.

It is a toxic air contaminant found in many industries including oil and gas refining, shipping, wastewater treatment and landfills. It’s highly corrosive and flammable and a leading cause of substance inhalation-related workplace deaths, said the company. As a result, industries that produce significant concentrations of hydrogen sulfide are required by federal law to implement measures to monitor and reduce the production of the compound. The Westminster, California, company said the SAS study confirms the “oxidation of hydrogen sulfide gas,” which validates the company’s technology in “real-world experiences with client operations.”
