BioLargo a Finalist for OCTANe High Tech Innovation Award
BioLargo, Inc. President and CEO Dennis Calvert was recently interviewed by OCTANe OC, a leading innovation cluster based in Orange County, on BioLargo’s technology, its vision, and its strategy to achieve future growth. The interview was part of a comprehensive assessment for OCTANe’s High Tech Innovation Award (HTIA), a prestigious industry award that recognizes outstanding technology innovators in Orange County.
We’re excited to announce that BioLargo has been chosen as a finalist for this year’s (2017) OCTANe HTIA award. It’s no surprise that the company was not only nominated, but also made a finalist this year – 2017 has been a year of tremendous progress for BioLargo, both technologically and commercially. Its subsidiary, Odor-No-More, signed multiple national purchasing agreements with some of the largest solid waste management companies in North America this year for its industrial odor control product CupriDyne Clean, signalling meaningful commercial traction in this large and underserved market. Clyra Medical Technologies, another BioLargo subsidiary, completed development of its iodine-based advanced wound care products and is preparing submission for its product for FDA 510(K) application in the near future. And importantly, BioLargo’s Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) made significant strides toward commercialization, with more than 35 awarded grants, 3 commercial validation trials underway and potential engineering and scale-up partners under evaluation.
Dennis P. Calvert, President & CEO of BioLargo commented, “OCTANEe is building a dynamic ecosystem in Orange County to support technology innovation like ours. We are proud to be chosen by such a prestigious group of companies.
Other finalists for this year’s HTIA award include well-known computer technology companies such as HyperX and D-LINK, along with innovative biotechnology, medical, and software companies. Clearly, 2017 yielded an impressive list of finalists. For a full list of OCTANe HTIA finalists, go here.
