BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO) said it has teamed up with Garratt-Callahan Company, a national industrial water treatment company, to co-create and develop a wastewater treatment product that will salvage usable water from commercial facilities wastewater streams.
The developer of cutting-edge environmental technologies and a full-service engineering firm said a mutual concern for the environment and the care and conservation of water makes the collaboration between the two companies a "symbiotic match".
BioLargo's mission to provide unique disruptive solutions to deliver clean air, clean water and a clean, safe environment combined with Garratt-Callahan's 116 years of experience and commitment to provide safer water treatment and deliver unrivalled customer service make for a formidable combination.
The group said the shared goal is to design and manufacture a new piece of wastewater treatment equipment centered around a new patented water treatment process developed by Garratt-Callahan to reduce wastewater discharged from commercial facilities.
BioLargo's engineering division will design, build and pilot a prototype of the new system. When refined, the two organizations have agreed to offer the system commercially to Garratt-Callahan customers and select BioLargo distributors, with BioLargo serving as the equipment's ongoing manufacturer. The collaborative team targets having full-scale units in operation in mid to late 2021 or early 2022.
Both companies expect strong demand for this product offering among its wastewater treatment customers.
Garratt-Callahan has signed a purchase order with BioLargo to permit work to begin. The two organizations believe this will be the first collaboration of many. Discussions are underway between leaders at both companies regarding the future utilization of BioLargo's other technology assets to serve their customers' needs.
In a statement, Dennis P. Calvert, president and CEO of BioLargo commented: "This is a tremendous opportunity for BioLargo and Garratt-Callahan to work together to address customers' pressing wastewater treatment needs. Garratt-Callahan has a great reputation and history as a reliable and innovative water treatment services company, and they recognized BioLargo as a reliable innovator in the water treatment technology space.
"This collaboration is a perfect fit with shared corporate values of fairness, honesty and integrity. We believe we will help solve important water treatment challenges that Garratt-Callahan's customers face. We look forward to sharing more information as the project progresses."
