BioLargo Granted Expanded Patent Coverage for its AOS Water Treatment Technology
Westminster, CA – May 28, 2020 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), developer of sustainable technologies and a full-service environmental engineering company, announced that it has been awarded a new US patent covering its innovative water treatment technology the Advanced Oxidation System (AOS), designed and manufactured by BioLargo’s subsidiary BioLargo Water, Inc. The AOS works by generating highly reactive iodine compounds which destroy water contaminants inside the AOS, while emitting safe, clean water. Compared to many competing technologies, the AOS costs less to install and operate, eliminates certain water contaminants existing systems cannot, and requires less electricity to treat water to enable safe water discharge and/or reuse.
The new patent – US 10,654,731 B2 – grants broader coverage (meaning it has fewer specific limitations) of the AOS and its components than previous patents covering the AOS, thereby providing greater intellectual property protection to the company as it works to begin commercial trials for the AOS technology and develops strategic commercial partnerships.
BioLargo Water President Dr. Richard Smith commented, “This patent was issued at a critical time, as we are hard at work establishing the first commercial trials for the AOS technology, after which we hope to achieve initial sales. With broad, secure intellectual property protection, we can launch this powerful and innovative technology without significant concern about competitors copying our designs. This is a great day for BioLargo and BioLargo Water, and we are proud of our team members who made this possible.”
