Alberta Innovates commits to provide significant funding
Westminster, CA – December 22, 2020 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), developer of cutting-edge environmental technologies and a full-service engineering company, announced today that its Canadian subsidiary has received grant funding necessary to begin the design and construction of a full-scale farm-wide “zero liquid discharge” wastewater treatment and reuse project at Sunworks Farm, an organic poultry producer in Alberta, Canada.
Scheduled to begin operating next year, BioLargo will design, build, install and operate a custom water treatment train featuring its patented Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) technology. The system will treat all wastewater produced by farming operations and convert it to reusable water, saving the farm money and reducing its environmental impact. This project will make Sunworks Farm the first “zero liquid discharge” poultry facility in Alberta Canada, a significant technical and environmental achievement for both companies and for the Canadian poultry industry.
Alberta Innovates has committed funding for the project through the Water Innovation Program (https://albertainnovates.ca/programs/water-innovation/).
BioLargo Water President Dr. Richard Smith commented, “Poultry production in North America results in the discharge of over 60 billion gallons of wastewater into the environment every year, with few farms currently opting for capture and reuse systems. Zero liquid discharge systems are increasing in popularity due to their water use and discharge cost savings and because of the substantial environmental benefits. Our goal is for the AOS to be a by-word for water reuse.”
“BioLargo’s Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) technology has the potential to protect Alberta’s water quality and improve water reuse at Sunworks Farm. Advancing the reuse of wastewater through innovation is an important way to support economic development and environmental stewardship in Alberta”, says Dr. Brett Purdy, Executive Director of Environmental Innovation at Alberta Innovates.
