BioLargo's AOS Filter Receives Financial Support From the Government of Canada and Alberta Innovates

Toronto- Feb 26, 2015 – BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB: BLGO) announced today that its Canadian subsidiary BioLargo Water, Inc. has received financial contributions from two additional government agencies to support the work around its AOS Filter. The National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) has provided BioLargo with financial support through its "Youth Employment Program" (YEP) to further its fundamental mission to "stimulate wealth creation through innovation," and dedicated to support the work of Simmon Hofstetter, PhD, exclusively for BioLargo Water, Inc. and its AOS Filter technology.

"NRC-IRAP's support ensures our company continued scientific expertise to help us in our journey to develop and commercialize the AOS Filter Technology," commented Dennis Calvert, President & CEO of BioLargo. "NRC-IRAP's YEP is specifically designed to support highly trained post-secondary graduates like Dr. Hofstetter in his work with BioLargo Water."

Simmon Hofstetter holds a PhD in Food Science & Technology from the University of Alberta, with a background rooted in microbiology, and experience with industrial research and development in the food safety industry, as well as in novel technologies geared towards eliminating microbial pathogens. Dr. Hofstetter has also worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta to assist with biodegradation and reclamation research pertaining to the Athabasca Oil Sands. Overall, Dr. Hofstetter brings a suite of expertise in microbiology and toxic compounds relevant to precious water resources. Dr. Hofstetter is working to enhance and expand current applications of the AOS Filter technology.

In addition to the support from NRC-IRAP, Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures (AITF) contributed $62,500 under its program to help support the work of Petr Miller, PhD. AITF Industry Associates Program grants are awarded to help accelerate business ideas with research expertise, transform Alberta industry through practical application of research, and to support highly trained personnel in research and industry settings. The grant value is for one year's support with the intent to extend for an additional $62,000 for year two. This funding will enable BioLargo Water to support Dr. Miller's ongoing work to scale up and refine the BioLargo AOS system.

Petr Miller, Ph.D. is a Post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science at the University of Alberta. He received his PhD in Food Chemistry and Technology at the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague in the Czech Republic. He has more than eight years of research experience in the field of Food microbiology, Food Science and Technology. He is an author of several research articles published in leading scientific journals. His past work includes research of fundamentals of novel antimicrobials and their application in food, and novel processing food technologies and their application. Dr. Miller currently works in collaboration with BioLargo Water to optimize the AOS Filter.
