BioLargo's AOS Filter Is 100x More Effective and 10x Faster Than Any Current Water Disinfection, 1/20th the Cost
REDONDO BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2016) - SECFilings.com, a leading financial news and information portal offering free real time public company filing alerts, announces publication of an article covering BioLargo Inc.'s (
OTCQB : BLGO ) revolutionary AOS Filter for disinfection of water from a large variety of industrial sources.
BioLargo is already in discussions with the poultry industry where the technology can be used for process water recycling, livestock drinking water, and wastewater treatment. With over 200,000 poultry farms generating $50 billion per year in revenue, the industry requires new technologies to defend against pathogens like bird flu and salmonella.
In the maritime industry, the International Maritime Organization and U.S. Coast Guard recently imposed regulations for the treatment and discharge of ballast water with the hope of cleaning up the world's oceans. An estimated 65,000 ships must be fitted with approved systems over the next five years and the cost of each system exceeds $750,000. That represents a $50 billion price tag over the next few years for meeting new regulations.
In the oil and gas industry, water transportation and trucking costs amount to $1.5 million per well, which represents nearly a quarter of the overall cost. Falling oil prices have put pressure on margins and made water management an area of focus. BioLargo's AOS Filter could create the ability to recycle produced water on-site and significantly reduce transportation costs, source water costs, and disposal costs for oil and gas producers.
