The National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) has provided the firm with financial support through its Youth Employment Program (YEP) for the development of AOS Filter technology and specifically the work of Dr Simmon Hofstetter.

And Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures (AITF) has contributed  $62,500 to support the work of Dr Petr Miller to scale up and refine the AOS system.

"We are thankful to have Drs. Hofstetter and Miller on our BioLargo team and are excited to have the support of such renowned organizations as the NRC-IRAP and Alberta Innovates," said Dennis Calvert, president and chief executive of BioLargo.

AOS Filter is specifically designed to eliminate common, troublesome and dangerous contaminants in water in a fraction of the time and cost of current technologies.
