Westminster, CA – October 21, 2020 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), developer of sustainable technologies and a full-service environmental engineering company, announced today that its subsidiary BioLargo Engineering, Science & Technologies (BLEST) has been awarded a contract to assist in the reconfiguration of the Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) systems used at a large chemical manufacturing plant on the East Coast of the US, owned by a global chemical company, that produces phenolic resins, antioxidants and related synthetic organic products. The contract is expected to execute with a series of milestones through mid-2021, with anticipated scope expanding the contract period to at least 24 months and over $500,000 in total revenue.
A Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer is a device that destroys unwanted organic air contaminants produced as a result of the phenolic resin production process. An RTO is a highly energy-efficient technology that uses waste heat to eliminate organic air contaminants, and is a crucial piece of equipment for this chemical plant.
The plant is preparing to shut down an existing, older RTO and re-route the exhaust treated by that RTO to a newer, much larger and more efficient RTO. This will result in significant energy efficiency and cost savings improvements to the facility. The work to reconfigure these RTO systems is not trivial, requiring substantial engineering and design work to ensure it proceeds safely and efficiently. BLEST has been contracted to conduct the initial engineering work to assess the feasibility of the RTO reconfiguration project. BLEST engineers have significant experience engineering and designing RTO systems, with some of its engineers having designed multiple RTO systems for the facility.
