BioLargo Engineering Completes Prototype for PFAS Treatment System and Prepares for First Pilot Projects


Westminster, CA – July 2, 2020 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), developer of sustainable technologies and a full-service environmental engineering company, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary BioLargo Engineering, Science & Technologies (BLEST) has completed manufacturing on its first prototype unit of its patented BioLargo AECTM (“Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator”). This prototype is being tested and will be installed on-site for its first field pilot in the coming months, where the technology will be vetted in tough field conditions for its ability to effectively and affordably eliminate per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (“PFAS”) contaminants from water. The technology has already been proven in lab-scale studies to eliminate +99% of PFAS from water in continuous flow while consuming as low as $0.30 in electrical costs per 1,000 gallons treated, representing a significant potential cost savings compared to incumbent PFAS solutions like reverse osmosis and carbon sequestration technologies.

Described as “forever chemicals” by Washington DC based environmental watchdog the Environmental Working Group, PFAS contamination is estimated to affect up to 110 million people in the United States. Numerous experts have linked PFAS to detrimental effects on human health and the environment due to their tendency to accumulate and persist in the environment and human body. On January 7, 2020, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced that “aggressively addressing per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) is an active and ongoing priority for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.” PFAS are found in common household and industrial products, and municipalities are struggling to find a feasible and affordable solution to remove these contaminants from their drinking water.

The BioLargo AEC is intended for two primary markets in the U.S. and abroad: 1) treatment of municipal drinking water to remove PFAS contamination, and 2) treatment and remediation of groundwater contaminated by PFAS. Recent estimates suggest that the total addressable market for PFAS water treatment within the U.S. will grow to $3.1B annually by 2030.

Once the first field pilot projects for the AEC have been successfully completed, the company intends to commence the first commercial trials for the AEC.

Speaking on the future of the BioLargo AEC, BioLargo Engineering President Randall Moore commented, “As with any new technology, the first field pilots are a critical step for the AEC. We are confident our prototype will quickly gain recognition for its unmatched cost-efficiency for removal of PFAS, a technical challenge that has not yet been solved in a broadly feasible and affordable way. The AEC was designed from the ground-up to be a low-OPEX system that consumes very little electricity, and its components are easily sourced, durable, and affordable for most prospective installations.”

BioLargo, Inc. President & CEO Dennis P. Calvert commented, “Experts predict removing PFAS from groundwater and contaminated soil will takes decades to complete. Current PFAS technologies are expensive, inefficient, and cumbersome.  Our engineering team are experts in this area, and this innovative AEC technology would not be possible without their extensive industry experience. We have key relationships in the water industry that can help prove out our AEC performance metrics and leverage the global opportunity through partnerships.”

BioLargo Discusses Clyraguard, BioLargo PFAS Treatment Technology Scale-up and Commercialization, and Progress of South Korean Joint Venture with The Stock Day Podcast



Phoenix, Arizona--(Newsfile Corp. - June 4, 2020) - The Stock Day Podcast welcomed BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB: BLGO) ("the Company"), developer of sustainable technologies and a full-service environmental engineering company with a focus on clean water, clean air, and advanced antimicrobial products. President & CEO of BioLargo, Dennis P. Calvert, joined Stock Day host Everett Jolly for an interview.
Jolly began by asking about the Company's subsidiary, Clyra Medical Technologies Inc., which recently launched a new product called Clyraguard. "This is a personal protection spray," explained Calvert. "It is hospital-grade, FDA-registered and cleared, and is 99.99% effective. This is an absolute winner," said Calvert.
"How big do you think this product can become?", asked Jolly. Calvert shared that Clyraguard has the potential to benefit a wide variety of people. "We know that it is the perfect product for a frontline healthcare worker," said Calvert, adding that the product is also suitable for individuals that are considered high-risk or are simply looking for protection against a number of pathogens. "We don't know of any product that matches the feature benefits of this product," said Calvert.
Calvert shared that Clyra has already begun selling the product, which is currently retailing at around $25 for a four-ounce bottle. "[Clyra is] building distribution as we speak, and adding team members to really help build that distribution. So, we think this is going to be a big blockbuster for the company."
Jolly then asked about the Company's patented CupriDyne® Clean product, and about the progress of their joint venture in South Korea. Calvert shared that the Company has finalized a joint venture with one of the leading waste water treatment groups in South Korea. "We got that transaction put together just a few months ago," said Calvert, discussing the tremendous potential of this agreement as the effects of the pandemic begin to subside.
"Where are we at with the PFAS solution?", asked Jolly, commenting on the Company's industrial water treatment technology aimed at eliminating per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from water, called the BioLargo AEC. Calvert explained that the BioLargo AEC is a solution to the PFAS crisis which is both effective and affordable. "We'd like to be in commercial trials within the next 120 days," he continued, adding that the primary focus of this project is currently to produce a scaled-up version of the technology, which company management expects will be completed soon. Calvert explained that potential commercial trial clients are lining up.
To close the interview, Calvert expressed the potential of the Company's long list of technologies, which have continued to advance despite the current challenges of the pandemic. "We think that the future is right here before us," closed Calvert.

Johnny Sirpilla Joins BioLargo’s Subsidiary Clyra Medical Technologies as Chief Business Development Officer

Westminster, CA – June 2, 2020 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), developer of sustainable technologies and a full-service environmental engineering company, today announced that experienced business executive John A. Sirpilla has expanded his role from the Advisory Board of BioLargo’s partially owned subsidiary Clyra Medical Technologies, Inc., to serve as Clyra’s Chief Business Development Officer.

In his new role at the company, Mr. Sirpilla will work with Clyra’s senior executive team on brand expansion and retail channel development, and will work to develop strategic partnerships to help make Clyra products widely available to individuals, businesses, and the healthcare industry.

Mr. Sirpilla is the former President of Camping World Accessory Stores, a 140-store nationwide retail chain serving the RV industry and was promoted in 2012 to Chief Business Development Officer for the parent company, Camping World and Good Sam with annual sales of nearly $4 billion.   He is currently the CEO and founder of Encourage LLC (www.encourage33.com), a family office focused on driving change in healthy living, leadership, and child adoption. A long-time resident of Canton Ohio, Mr. Sirpilla also sits on the board of trustees of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Hall of Fame Health, publicly traded LCI, Aultman Health Foundation, and other medical device boards.
Mr. Sirpilla joins the Clyra team as the company launches its FDA registered Clyraguard Personal Protection Spray to help protect personal protective equipment from the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Mr. Sirpilla commented, “At Camping World, a portion of my responsibilities involved the oversight of call center operations, buying & merchandising, parts and accessories inventory, distribution center supply chain, store operations, and wholesale distribution. I believe strongly that these experiences will help me propel Clyra to the success it deserves. Clyra’s products fit well in my philosophy that inspiring others can lead to a positive impact on the world.”

Clyraguard is a spray designed to help prevent cross contamination by the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus, the cause of COVID-19 disease of the personal protective equipment worn by both front-line healthcare workers and consumers. Registered with the FDA as a Class I general purpose disinfectant, Clyraguard features an extremely high antimicrobial efficacy at 99.999% kill rate (complete inactivation), and the recent testing showed it inactivates the COVID-19 coronavirus below the limits of detection of the testing model.
