BioLargo PFAS Removal Technology Meets New US Drinking Water Standards

BioLargo’s Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator generates a fraction of the waste product of competing technologies

Westminster, CA – April 15, 2024 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), a company that creates and commercializes sustainable technologies to solve tough environmental and cleantech challenges, confirmed that its Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC) can remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from water to meet and surpass the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) drinking water limits for PFAS chemicals announced April 10, 2024. Additionally, the AEC produces far less PFAS-laden solid waste than carbon filtration or ion exchange, which should result in lower long-term costs for customers while reducing potential regulatory burden. BioLargo also offers advisory services, analytical testing, and education on PFAS science and regulations to water providers who need assistance complying with the new regulations. The newly finalized rules set national limits for PFAS in public drinking water to nearly undetectable levels, as low as 4 parts per trillion.

PFAS are an expansive group of man-made chemicals used for decades in the manufacture of countless goods, including non-stick cookware, fast-food containers, and firefighting foam. PFAS have been linked to numerous health problems including cancer and developmental issues, and are challenging to remove from water using traditional treatment techniques.

While traditional water filtration treatment technologies such as granular activated carbon, ion exchange, and membrane filtration may meet these new EPA standards on some PFAS species, they can fall short of achieving sufficient removal rates for short-chain PFAS molecules (such as the now-EPA-regulated GenX and PFHXS). They also have the significant downside of producing large volumes of PFAS-laden solid waste, which requires additional disposal costs and creates potential regulatory liability.

These new EPA regulations mark a shift in the evolving market for PFAS treatment technologies. Previously driven by a patchwork of state and local drinking water regulations, drinking water providers across the country will have to comply with the new federal standards. The EPA estimates compliance with the new rules will cost approximately $1.5 billion annually; spending in other industry segments is not included in that estimate (e.g., treatment of groundwater, wastewater, industrial wastewater, or landfill leachate).

“These long-awaited drinking water regulations are a big win for our technology,” commented Tonya Chandler, President of BioLargo Equipment Solutions & Technologies, BioLargo’s water equipment subsidiary. “Our AEC has an edge over the competition, as it can meet these new standards for all PFAS contaminants and generates far less PFAS-laden waste requiring disposal.”

In addition to these new standards, in February 2024 the EPA proposed changes to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act regulations by adding nine PFAS chemical compounds to its list of hazardous constituents in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 261 Appendix VIII.

“If these RCRA rules are finalized, costs associated with handling and disposing of PFAS-laden solid waste will likely become more expensive and difficult, giving our product a significant cost advantage over the competition,” said Ms. Chandler.

PFAS Regulatory Hearings in the Senate – Our Take

For those unaware, the Senate held a hearing this week regarding regulating per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (#PFAS) under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). If this happens, sites badly contaminated by PFAS would be subject to enforcement under CERCLA, meaning those parties responsible for the contamination would have to pay for its cleanup. This proposal is separate from the proposals to regulate PFAS under the Safe Drinking Water Act (which would require drinking water treatment plants to monitor and treat for PFAS) and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (which would create rules to treat PFAS-containing substances as hazardous constituents).

At BioLargo, obviously we have strong opinions in this situation (we’re selling PFAS treatment solutions!), but we think most people will agree that regulating PFAS under CERCLA is good thing. Why? Because it will help ensure that these badly contaminated lands get remediated, and protect future generations from these damaging contaminants. It will also hold polluters responsible, and create a budget for sites to get cleaned up (and as a reminder, if a polluter can’t be identified, the “superfund” helps pay for its cleanup). Finally, regulating PFAS under CERCLA is an admission that PFAS is a problem that demands a solution that is  “cradle-to-grave”, meaning you shouldn’t just sequester PFAS in a landfill somewhere.

The Senate meeting this week was held to discuss the potential for creating a carve-out exception under the proposed CERCLA PFAS rules for “passive receivers”, which are sites or facilities that receive PFAS-containing materials incidentally, rather than it being something they generate as part of their business. Examples of passive receivers include wastewater treatment facilities and landfills. The hearing helped illuminate how the federal government is looking at tackling the issue of PFAS-contaminated sites, and how they hope to hold polluters responsible while not causing undue collateral damage.

Some highlights from the hearing:

  • The committee’s main concern was that “passive receivers” of PFAS-containing materials might be on the hook for PFAS cleanup if the chemicals are regulated under CERCLA with no provisions to protect them.
  • Handling of PFAS-laden wastes, and the costs associated with that waste, was a concern to committee members.
  • Members of the committee mentioned that carbon filtration and ion exchange are the ”best available” treatment options – from our perspective, this is basically the government acknowledging that GAC and ion exchange are the only technologies already available (so far) at large-scale to solve the problem, even though they’re in many ways not ideally suited to treat PFAS. These technologies have real downsides: they have “blind spots” of short-chain PFAS species that they struggle to remove, and they generate a lot of solid waste in the process of treatment.  We believe these solutions will fall short in the long run!
  • While the committee was split on the particulars of who should be held responsible for PFAS contamination and how, no one argued that PFAS isn’t dangerous and shouldn’t be treated.

It’s at this point that we have to remind everyone that BioLargo’s PFAS treatment solution, the Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC) is an ideal solution to treat PFAS in a post-CERCLA regulations world. Why? Because the AEC is designed from the ground up to concentrate PFAS onto an extremely small surface area – meaning it creates far less PFAS-laden waste than things like ion exchange or carbon filtration.

We stand ready to help industry and passive receivers clean up their water, as well as their waste streams including wastewater and leachate, and help them minimize their CERCLA liability exposure.

As the situation regarding PFAS regulations evolve, we’ll try to keep people updated! I will be presenting next week at the MWEA/AWWA 2024 Join Annual Meeting about these topics, and several other events throughout the summer.

BioLargo Launches Water Equipment Subsidiary to Capitalize on Opportunities in PFAS and Water Treatment

Westminster, CA – January 29, 2024 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), a company that creates and commercializes sustainable technologies to solve tough environmental and cleantech challenges, announced the launching of a new subsidiary – BioLargo Equipment Solutions & Technologies, Inc. (BEST) – to capitalize on substantial opportunities for its technologies in the water treatment industry. BEST will enable BioLargo to represent all its water technologies under one roof, better support its sales and distribution network of qualified reps and channel partners, and will initially focus on: 

  • the AEC, an effective, sustainable, low-waste technology for removing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from water which is combined with a turnkey collection and destruction solution for customers;
  • the AOS (Advanced Oxidation System), a technology targeted at energy-efficient water disinfection and micropollutant destruction;
  • the AROS (Aqueous Reuse Optimization System), a water recycling technology for use in cooling towers and industrial wastewater that was developed in partnership with Garratt-Callahan;
  • industrial odor control products under the CupriDyne brand offered by sister company ONM Environmental; and
  • water treatment solutions developed by third party technology manufacturers for which BEST is an authorized reseller in order to provide complete solutions for its customers.

Tonya Chandler, BioLargo’s Director of Technical Commercialization, has agreed to move into the role as president of the new subsidiary. Tonya has over 20 years’ experience developing selling channels and managing complex projects and accounts in the water industry and is ideally suited to lead efforts to sell and monetize BioLargo’s water treatment technologies. She also established herself as a recognized expert in PFAS water treatment invited to speak at numerous conferences and educational, including continuing education units for engineers, and similar events throughout the year and continuing into 2024.

Although new to the role of president of BEST, Tonya has been building a nationwide sales organization for BioLargo’s water treatment technologies, and she led the efforts to establish BEST’s pipeline of potential projects. The building of this pipeline has been demanding work. Each project goes through a rigorous process to test water and identify a solution, which is presented to the prospective client. At their request, proposed engagements include proposed engineering, pricing, timing, supply chain support and relationships, permitting, and customization as required. The pipeline continues to expand.   

Tonya commented, “The municipal drinking water project we secured in New Jersey for a PFAS treatment system is just the start for BEST. As our first opportunity to for field validation of our technology’s superior PFAS removal performance and minimal waste generation, we believe it will open the floodgates of client opportunities. We are working on commencing on-site pilots for other target markets for our PFAS technology, including fire-fighting foam remediation, ground water, wastewater and landfill leachate.”

CEO of BioLargo, Inc., Dennis P. Calvert commented, “It isn’t easy to launch new and innovative technologies into the water industry, a historically risk-averse market. Our strategy is to execute successful projects with initial reference customers, create iron-clad case studies, then foster recognition of our technologies in the industry with key opinion leaders. Tonya is perfectly suited to lead this effort and we also are actively recruiting additional team members to help us grow as we bring on and support additional customers. We look forward to sharing more information as the business progresses.”

BioLargo Doubles Annual Revenues - Again

Westminster, CA – January 22, 2024 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), a company that creates and commercializes sustainable technologies to solve tough environmental and cleantech challenges, announced that its annual revenues for the year ended December 31, 2023, were more than double 2022 revenues, representing the second year in a row revenues have doubled.

BioLargo’s increase in sales were primarily driven by sales of Pooph, a blockbuster pet odor control product line that features safe, effective and eco-friendly products sold through national retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Chewy and more. BioLargo serves as a technology partner and supplier to Pooph, Inc., and they manage the national marketing, branding, and distribution for the Pooph line of products.

BioLargo President and CEO Dennis P. Calvert said, “The success of Pooph validates our business model of inventing a best-in-class technology-based product, proving it up through world-class R&D, and partnering to maximize commercial reach. The team at Pooph informs us that they expect to continue growing sales in 2024 and by doing so, they will continue to increase the value of its brand. These are both are great developments for BioLargo.”  

He continued, “The response from the marketplace to our PFAS removal and water treatment related technologies as well as our long duration battery storage solution is highly encouraging for 2024 and beyond.  We expect to earn our first revenues from our proprietary PFAS treatment technology this year thanks to our securing a key municipal drinking water project, the success of which we anticipate will springboard the technology into more and more projects as customers become more comfortable with our novel technology with superior claims over the competition.”

The company is still working to conclude its audit of its 2023 financial statements and intends to file its annual report with the SEC at the end of March. The revenue estimates for 2023 are preliminary and subject to change pending review and audit by the company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

Jan 1, 2024 Interview with CEO Dennis Calvert of BioLargo, Inc. - National Investor Interview

 Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AG8YbmNkjQ


Happy New Year!

And it's an especially happy one for BioLargo and its shareholders, following its first-ever commercial contract for PFAS remediation work in New Jersey.

PFAS, or so-called "Forever chemicals" are in drinking water, ground water and elsewhere the world over and have been estimated to be a multi-TRILLION dollar problem to mitigate in the years to come. 

BioLargo's AEC system has many advantages over current/previous remediation efforts as you will learn in this discussion between Dennis and Chris; and with this first deal under its belt, BioLargo is poised to make a bigger breakthrough into this market in the year ahead.

AND there are many other "moving parts" here with BioLargo as you will hear from a company also responsible--among other things--for the origination of that "Pooph!" pet odor and stain eliminator you've been hearing about all over TV and the Internet! And how about the potential final payday just from that...!!
