Odor-No-More, Inc., a subsidiary of BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB: BLGO), announced on May 1st that it signed a National Purchasing Agreement (NPA) for its industrial odor control products with Waste Connections, Inc., a leading integrated solid waste and recycling service company headquartered in The Woodlands, TX.
Odors are a natural part of the decomposing organic material found in all sorts of facilities, but when neighbors smell it, it can be a real problem. The waste management industry has long searched for a solution that actually succeeds in controlling or eliminating the overwhelming odors found at transfer stations, composting facilities, landfill operations, sewage plants, lift stations, food processing plants, and animal enclosures.
The vast majority of competing products masks odors by delivering heavy fragrances that overpower the bad odors. In contrast, the company’s lead product CupriDyne Clean™ goes right to the source of the problem and oxidizes and eliminates the odor-causing compounds like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ammonia, sulfur compounds, hydrogen sulfide, fatty acids, and mercaptans. CupriDyne Clean is a sustainable product that is safe, non-toxic, non-sensitizing, and breaks down odorous compounds instantly upon contact.
Waste Connections is a leading waste management company with over 500 facilities. Its Senior VP of Engineering and Disposal, Jim Little commented on the NPA for CupriDyne Clean, “Our company is committed to serving its customers with best practices, and after successful odor trials with CupriDyne Clean, we’re excited about this new partnership.”
Dennis P. Calvert, President and CEO of BioLargo was quoted, “Our claim that CupriDyne Clean is the top performing, safest and most sustainable odor control product in the waste industry today continues to be supported by our performance trials with leading waste handing companies.” Calvert continued, “This is another important achievement by our team at Odor-No-More. Breaking through industry barriers to capture the attention of national waste management companies continues to be a focus for us. Gaining access to large national companies in any industry is always challenging. As we launch relationships like these, we will always be required to earn our customer’s business every day and get the job done in order to expand sales within the organization over time. This National Purchasing Agreement designates us as an approved vendor and allows us to initiate sales and service efforts to all of their operations without any formal guarantee of purchase volumes. We have much work to do to support this and every other opportunity like this, as we serve our important and valuable customers. Stay tuned to watch us build our business.”
CupriDyne Clean looks to be the long-awaited solution to the large and serious challenge of controlling unbearable odors in this sizeable industry. The top 10 companies in the solid waste and recycling industry alone generated over $37 billion in 2015 sales according to Waste360.
