Westminster, CA – February 8, 2021 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), a developer of sustainable technologies and a full-service environmental engineering company, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary ONM Environmental has acquired a deodorizing and sanitizing technology, called EcoMist®, that helps raise the customer care bar for solid waste collectors to treat all types of waste receptacles in real time during pick up.
EcoMist® is a device installed directly onto any waste collection vehicle that automatically sprays odor control products and/or sanitizer into refuse bins or dumpsters during the waste collection process. ONM plans to test market the product directly with its major solid waste handling customers by packaging it with its popular odor and VOC control product CupriDyne Clean. A video showing EcoMist® in operation can be viewed here: https://www.biolargo.com/ecomist-video® is easy to install and use. It works “out-of-the-box”, allowing customers to install the system themselves, and meaning ongoing sales will not require a significant investment in logistics and servicing. ONM’s acquisition of EcoMist® is part of its strategy to grow revenues of its air quality control division through chemistry deployment systems that lead to more scalable sales of its disruptive odor and VOC control product CupriDyne® Clean. It also helps ensure ONM can provide the largest waste handling companies in the country with a broad range of tools to solve their odor and VOC control challenges in all facets of their business.
ONM’s only obligation under the acquisition agreement is a 10% royalty on EcoMist® system sales.
President of ONM Environmental Joseph Provenzano commented, “To the best of our knowledge the EcoMist system is one of a kind. We believe it is a good fit to enhance business growth and another example of how we continue to deliver valuable solutions for our customers while helping keep our environment cleaner, safer and healthier, as we pursue our overarching mission to ‘make life better’”.
