Sustain SoCal President Scott Kitcher said of the award, “BioLargo exemplifies a technology company paving the way toward solutions to environmental issues. We are proud and delighted to give this award to BioLargo for its hard work addressing serious sustainability challenges.”
BioLargo President & CEO Dennis P. Calvert commented, “2019 was a tremendous year for BioLargo’s burgeoning sustainable cleantech products and services, and we are grateful to Sustain SoCal for recognizing us as the 2019 Cleantech Company of the Year. Our AOS clean water technology was deployed in several demonstration pilots where its energy efficient water treatment capabilities were proven in real-life settings. Our engineering division developed a novel and powerful treatment technology with the potential to help solve the global PFAS contamination crisis, and began serving seven United States Air Force bases with environmental engineering services. And our odor and VOC control division hit record sales numbers, setting the stage for us to serve an ever-growing number of air quality customers in 2020. We also topped all this off with the successful FDA 510(K) clearance for our first advanced wound care product.”
