- Ikigai's POOPH - The company's white-label pet odor control product partnership with Ikigai is advancing well and generating increasing revenues both from manufacturing the product and from license royalties. Sales thus far have exceeded early expectations, and the company's partners at Ikigai are confident that growth will continue, especially as they push to get the product onto shelves at major retailers.
- Garratt-Callahan partnership - The company expects first sales of the "minimal liquid discharge" (MLD) wastewater treatment equipment developed in partnership with Garratt-Callahan to begin soon, following discussions with an expanding list of Garratt-Callahan customers.
- Larger engineering projects - In this quarter, BioLargo Engineering, Science & Technologies executed engineering projects for new customers, including its project to develop prototypes with Ultra Safe Nuclear, and the waste-to-energy plant project in South America.
