    PFAS is big business and all over the news in the US. A multi Billion market opportunity. BioLargo has the most effective and cost-efficient PFAS treatment solution and first commercial Pilot Projects are about to start...

    The Mineral extraction project reminds me a bit of mining projects, the only difference is that you cannot mine without BioLargo’s technology and you will have a liability to get rid of the waste properly instead. In my opinion the Net Present Value of the extraction project of valuable mineral resources is likely multiples of the current market cap of BioLargo. The project is expected to generate over $1B in revenues.

    “In our shareholder’s meeting just a few weeks ago, we talked about a very large magnesium project where we’ve taken a waste stream from a mining operation and have shown our client [that we can] convert that to well over a billion in revenue,” said Calvert. “It’s heading into serious negotiations and we’re hoping to bring that to closure in the near future,” he added. “We invented the technology that makes it work.”

    Thanks for vid. I've been hearing about per-fluorinated and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) relative to urban farming and the potential dangers food from urban farms may impose on the public, as some plants are hyper-accumulators of toxic substances like heavy metals and, I guess, PFAS.

    My take-aways from the vid:
    • The EPA has no regulations for PFAS so the States have to come up with their own regulations
    • There are no enforceable Safe Drinking Water Act standards
    • The EPA has no lab methods for testing for PFAS except for drinking water but that is expensive and challenging
    • Clean-up options are limited (this is presumably where BLGO comes in)
    • For now States are focused on identifying sources and areas of contamination and how to remove and clean-up
    We know that the EPA's budget was slashed by the last administration, so that may explain why all the commotion on PFAS, which is everywhere, including in our own bodies...so that it will be politically acceptable to increase the EPA's budget...so as usual there is likely a hidden agenda. The vid made it sound like there are all these states concerned about finding and cleaning up PFAS sites. I'm not convinced that is the case, but I'd need to do more research. I do know that military bases have been clearly identified. So I wonder if BLGO has or is working on a contract with the DOD. Which leads to another question, does BLGO have the political connections necessary to be awarded a federal contract? Oh wait, that's not supposed to be the way contracts are awarded...yeah right.

    Thanks for your comments, good points. BioLargo already has business relations with the US Army...

    BioLargo's Engineering Subsidiary on a Hot Streak with New Contract Awards

    June 29, 2021
    https://irdirect.net/prviewer/release_only/id/4764114

    These new contract wins are for work with 1) a resin manufacturing facility, 2) a dairy farm, 3) a new project at Picatinny Arsenal, one of the company's long-time customers, 4) a potato processing plant, and 5) a US Air Force base, adding to the other seven bases already served by the company. Together, the new contracts are worth more than $1.2 million in revenue, most of which will be earned over the next six months.

    "Broadly speaking, there are three main markets for PFAS water treatment in the U.S., each of which we intend to address in the coming years. The first is municipal water treatment – that is water which needs treatment for PFAS before it can be distributed to the public or water that must be treated from a wastewater treatment plant. Southern California, Michigan and Wisconsin may be hotbeds for this market, as the states have adopted stringent regulations on PFAS limits in drinking water and wastewater, and significant initiatives have begun to implement systems to address the problem. The second market is military bases, where the use of PFAS-containing fire-fighting foam has contaminated the soil and groundwater. These sites are numerous and have significant groundwater and soil contamination problems which regulators are likely to require remediation for in the coming years. The third market is treatment for water intake or outfalls of industrial facilities that use PFAS compounds in manufacturing and other industrial processes. Our first pilot projects are in municipal water treatment. As our engineers are already providing environmental engineering services on U.S. Airforce bases, we believe that work may lead to sales in that arena."

    Biolargo (BLGO) water cleaning technology could bring clean water for all
    August 3, 2021

    https://woodlandreport.com/2021/08/...g-technology-could-bring-clean-water-for-all/

    The Bull thesis
    Commercialization is in full swing; revenues growing and debt paid off and at least one of those above mentioned endeavors will become a big success. More than one and we will do amazingly well – but it is actually looking good that a lot of not all will become a success = a potential Clean Tech Jackpot.

    The Bear thesis
    BioLargo has been a company operating for more than a decade and they spent way too long in R&D without being able to significantly monetize their developments. As a “logical” consequence they will never be able to monetize anything and not a single one of the above will succeed.

    BioLargo Launches PFAS Testing and Treatment System Selection Program
    September 02, 2021
    https://irdirect.net/prviewer/release_only/id/4849158

    Randall Moore, President of BioLargo's engineering division said, "With the launch of this new program, our engineers will be able to better serve municipalities that are struggling with having to close water wells due to PFAS contamination. Our AEC system reduces treatment costs because it generates only a fraction of the PFAS-laden waste compared to other treatment technologies like carbon filtration or ion exchange. No two water sources have the same underlying chemistry, and there are over 4,500 different PFAS compounds that can contaminate water. Thus, it is crucial to optimize treatment processes for each situation."
