BioLargo Reveals Larger Scale Commercial Design for AOS Water
Westminster, CA, Mar 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – via NEWMEDIAWIRE – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB: BLGO), a sustainable technology developer and full-service environmental engineering company, announced it has designed and manufactured a commercial prototype Upgraded to its proprietary Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) which is capable of treating 500 gallons of water per minute (“GPM”), a volume commensurate with the flow requirements of many commercial applications.
The new design uses Spiral AOS geometry to achieve greater throughput capacity without sacrificing size, and is expected to be the most energy efficient model of AOS technology to date. This new design is modular and easily scalable by increasing or decreasing the number of AOS spiral reactors (the long horizontal cylinders seen here), each of which is expected to be capable of 125 GPM.
The AOS 500 GPM unit (see Figure 1) is suitable for use in a variety of commercial settings, including the poultry processing and stormwater treatment and water reuse market, where the company is currently pursuing commercial piloting opportunities, as well as secondary markets that include stormwater, agri-food, industrial and oil and gas, agriculture and municipal.
Dr Richard Smith, President of BioLargo Water, said: “BioLargo’s engineering team has accelerated the transformation of AOS from a small benchtop unit to a pilot unit, and now to a water on a large scale commercially viable. processing system. We are fortunate to have access to these experienced engineers.
BioLargo Engineering President Randall Moore, a more than 20 year veteran of providing environmental engineering services, commented, “The production of a 500 GPM AOS system is the next required step in bringing the technology to market. AOS. The move to this larger scale (about one cubic foot per second) immediately transforms AOS from a research-driven prototype into a viable, commercial water disinfection option for several industries. As a modular system, flow rates much higher than 500 GPM are possible. A ten-by-ten network of 500 GPM AOS units could effectively disinfect 50,000 GPM, needed for large-scale applications such as municipal water treatment plants. This important step in scaling up brings a world of opportunity. “
BioLargo, Inc. President and CEO Dennis P. Calvert commented, “This is an important day for BioLargo Water and AOS technology as it puts behind us the question of whether we can evolve the technology. AOS to meet the high volume needs of the very large water treatment market. It also highlights the collaborative design and manufacturing effort between BioLargo Water and our team of engineers at BLEST. “
