BioLargo's AOS Filter Lands Its First Canadian Federal Research Grant

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 22, 2015) - BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB: BLGO) announced today that the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has awarded an "Engage Grant" to Dr. Lynn McMullen at the University of Alberta's Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutritional Sciences to initiate research with BioLargo's Canadian subsidiary BioLargo Water, Inc. The grant will allow dedicated research at the University of Alberta around the company's AOS Filter technology and its electrochemical inactivation of pathogens. This research will provide the necessary fundamental data that can be translated to further applications in the food and agricultural industries. 

"This first federal grant gives BioLargo expanded access to the unique knowledge and expertise at the University of Alberta and helps foster our long-term research partnership with the school," commented Dennis Calvert, President & CEO of BioLargo. "This specific award is for the maximum available under the Engage Grant program at $25,000 and we look forward to this important work with Dr. McMullen and to expanding our work at the University of Alberta as additional grants are finalized."

Dr. Lynn McMullen is a Professor of food microbiology at the University of Alberta where she has been teaching for over 20 years. She received her Ph.D. in Food Microbiology from the University of Alberta in 1994. Her primary research focus is on the use of novel techniques to improve the microbial safety and quality of meat and other animal products. She works closely with industry and government organizations to improve meat hygiene and looks forward to her involvement with BioLargo as this research adds an exciting dimension to solving problems in food safety. Dr. McMullen has mentored over 40 graduate students in the past 20 years and the research with BioLargo will lead to the training of more students. We anticipate that the research will allow BioLargo to expand their Advanced Oxidation system to new applications in food and agriculture.
