Risk factors are highly speculative in the investment of our common stock and involve high risk.
See "Risk Factors" at the beginning of page 3 ".
RISKFACTORSAn's investment in our common stock is highly speculative and involves high risk and should only be invested by investors who can withstand complete losses.
Before you decide to purchase our common stock, you should carefully consider the following risk factors, as well as other information in this prospectus, including our financial statements and related instructions.
If any of the following risks actually occur, then our business, financial position or operating results may be materially adversely affected and transactions of our common stock may decline, you may lose all or part of your investment.
Risks associated with our business our limited operating history makes it difficult to evaluate our business.
We only have limited historical financial data that can be used as a basis for planning operating expenses and can accurately predict the results of our future operations.
In addition, our limited operating history will make it difficult for investors and securities analysts to assess our business and prospects.
Failure to successfully address these risks and difficulties can seriously hurt us.
We have never made any significant income or a history of losing money, and we cannot assure you that we will always make a profit.
We have not yet received any significant revenue from operations, so we have suffered net losses every year since our inception.
We have used most of our financial resources so far for R & D, general and administrative expenses, and initial sales and marketing activities.
We have funded most of our activities by issuing convertible bonds or stock securities.
We expect that net losses and negative cash flow will continue to exist in the foreseeable future until the time when the license or operating income generates enough to offset the loss of business.
Our ability to make a profit depends on our ongoing R & D, product development, sales and marketing efforts, and our ability to successfully obtain a technical license.
There is no guarantee that our income will be sufficient to make us profitable or that we will remain profitable thereafter.
We may also face unforeseen problems, difficulties, costs or delays in carrying out our business plans.
We need a lot of cash.
Failure to raise foreign funds will have a significant adverse impact on our financial situation and operations.
Our cash needs and expenses will continue to be substantial.
As at December 31, 2016 and 2015, we had net cash for continued operations of $3,720,912 and $1,883,342, respectively.
These negative cash flows are mainly related to operating losses and to a lesser extent to fluctuations in working capital projects.
We continue to use cash in 2017 and we expect that in the foreseeable future we will need a significant amount of additional funds to meet the needs of working capital to continue to grow. Marketing and licensing our technology and products based on our technology.
Although we have been successful in raising funds in the past, there is no guarantee that we will be able to raise funds successfully in the future.
Failure to raise foreign funds will have a significant adverse effect on our financial position, our operations and our ability to market and sell products.
Our ability to operate continuously depends on our ability to raise capital and ultimately generate cash from operations.
We issue stock from time to time instead of cash to cover some of our operating expenses.
These issues are diluted to our existing shareholders.
We are a party to the agreement which provides for payment or allows us to choose to pay the Securities to consider the services provided to us.
We often pay stock or stock options to employees, suppliers and consultants, not cash, and we expect to do so in the future.
All of these issues are diluted to our shareholders as they increase (
Or can be added later)
The total number of shares issued and unissued by our common stock, although this arrangement helps us to manage cash flow with increased operating costs, reduced liquidity and further reductions.
Our shareholders face further potential dilution in any new financing.
Any additional equity we raise will dilute the interests of current shareholders and anyone who may become shareholders before financing.
Given the low price of our common stock, this dilution in a large amount of financing may be huge.
Our shareholders face further potential adverse effects of any preferred stock terms that may be issued in the future.
In order to raise funds to pay for or acquire the business, additional shares, including preferred shares, may be issued by our board of directors.
Any preferred stock that we may issue may have voting rights, liquidation preferences, redemption rights and other rights, preferences and privileges.
The rights of our holders of common stock will be subject to the rights of any such holders of preferred stock and in many respects belong to them.
In addition, such preferred shares may have other rights of our common stock, including economic rights, which may have a significant adverse effect on the value of our common stock.
Preferred shares, while providing the ideal flexibility in terms of possible acquisitions and other corporate purposes, may also result in the difficulty for third parties to obtain most of our outstanding voting shares, this delays, delays or prevents changes in control of our company.
In further developing our business, we are considering several specific business opportunities.
None of these opportunities are the subject of the final agreement, most or all of which require us to take on additional funding obligations and there is no funding available at the moment.
In order to advance our business plan, we are currently considering a number of opportunities to promote our business, further develop and expand our technology and license to third parties.
While discussions are under way on these opportunities, no clear agreement has been reached on these opportunities.
There is no guarantee that any such opportunities under discussion will result in a final agreement, or, if a final agreement is reached, those opportunities will be reached on conditions that are in our favor.
In addition, if any of these opportunities result in the final agreement being executed or completed, we may need to spend additional funds beyond our current operating budget to facilitate these efforts.
There is no such financing for such efforts at the moment, and we cannot assure you that any such financing is available, or, if so, whether it will be in the interest of our company.
The cost of maintaining our reporting obligations for public companies is high.
Under the rules and regulations of the SEC, we are obliged to maintain our regular public documents and public reporting requirements in a timely manner.
In order to meet these obligations, we need to continue to raise funds.
Without sufficient funds, we will not be able to comply with these requirements and may no longer be eligible to trade our shares in the public market.
As a listed company, we are responsible for a lot of legal, accounting and other expenses.
Also, Sabans-
The Oakley Act of 2002 and the relevant rules passed by SEC put substantive requirements on listed companies, including certain corporate governance practices and requirements related to internal control of financial reporting, in accordance with sabans-404Oxley Act.
We expect losses in the future and may not be profitable.
While our revenue from product sales is limited, we want revenue from the new products we launch, and ultimately revenue from other licensing or supply agreements, which we expect, in the foreseeable future, net losses and negative cash flow will continue to exist until our products are expanded in the market and are more widely accepted by dealers and customers.
Our current sales level is not enough to meet the financial needs of our business.
We cannot predict when or if the sales volume is sufficient to cover our operating expenses.
With the increase of financial resources, we intend to expand the marketing efforts of our products and we intend to continue to expand our R & D efforts.
So we need to generate a lot of extra income or seek additional financing to fund our business.
This puts forward corresponding requirements for capital.
Our ability to make a profit depends on our efforts to deliver viable products and our ability to successfully bring them to the market, which is what we are currently pursuing.
While our management is optimistic that we will successfully license our technology, we are not sure if we will generate enough revenue to make a profit.
If we are unable to achieve or remain profitable, then we may not be able to meet the expected cash needs and continue to operate.
If we cannot invest enough resources to promote the commercialisation of our technology, our business plans will be affected and may fail.
Because we have limited resources in terms of technology for sales, marketing and licensing work, any delay in these work can jeopardize the future development of technology and the commercialisation of technology.
While our management believes that it can fund commercial efforts by selling our securities and other possible sources of funding, if we fail to successfully bring our technology to market, our ability to generate income will be adversely affected.
If we fail to manage our expected growth effectively, we may not be able to make a profit.
We expect that expansion will continue to be needed to address potential market opportunities for our technology and products.
Our existing infrastructure is limited and non-scalable and, if any, will not be able to support future growth.
There is no guarantee that we will have the funds to create new infrastructure or that any such infrastructure will be scalable enough to manage future growth, if any ).
There is also no guarantee that if we invest in additional infrastructure, we will effectively expand our business or that our systems, procedures or controls will be sufficient to support such expansion.
In addition, if we achieve the expected growth in selling technology for a variety of applications, we will need to provide additional sales and support services to our partners.
Failure to properly manage an increase in customer needs can have a significant adverse effect on customer satisfaction, our ability to perform our contractual obligations, and our operational results.
Some products that contain our technology will require regulatory approval.
The products that our technology may be included in are both regulated and unregulated.
Regulatory applications.
Regulatory approvals for certain applications can be difficult, impossible, time-consuming and/or expensive.
While our management believes that these approvals can be obtained at the federal and state levels, if required, before approval by the FDA or EPA or other regulatory authorities, we may not be able to obtain the commercial revenue that may be required.
Certain specific regulated applications and their use require a high degree of technical analysis and additional third-party verification, and regulatory approval from organizations such as the FDA is required.
Certain applications may also be subject to additional state and local agency regulations, increasing costs and time associated with business strategies.
In addition, most products containing our technology may be sold in the EU (“EU”)
Regulatory approvals from the EU and individual countries may also be required.
All such approvals, including additional testing, are time-
Consumed, expensive, and without a guaranteed result of final regulatory approval.
We need to outsource and rely on third parties to manufacture chemicals, material components or delivery equipment used in our technology, and part of our future success will depend on the timeliness and effectiveness of these third party efforts.
We do not have the financial and human resources or capabilities required to manufacture chemicals that make up our technology.
Our business model requires outsourcing of the manufacture of these chemicals to reduce our capital and infrastructure costs, thus potentially improving our financial position and profitability of our business.
Therefore, we must reach an agreement with other companies that can help us and provide certain capabilities, including procurement and manufacturing capabilities that we do not have.
We may not succeed in building such an alliance under favorable conditions or at all.
Even if we succeed in ensuring these agreements, we may not be able to maintain them.
In addition, any delay in signing an agreement may delay the development and commercialisation of our technology, or even if it enters the market, it will reduce its competitive power.
Any such delay in connection with such future agreements may adversely affect our business.
If either party of our outsourcing of certain functions fails to fulfill its obligations under the agreement with us, the commercial nature of our technology may be delayed or reduced.
If we rely on other companies to produce chemicals used in our technology, or to sell or sell products that contain our technology, we will depend on the timeliness and effectiveness of their efforts.
If either of these parties fails to meet their obligations in a timely and effective manner, the commercialisation of our technology may be delayed or reduced, as we may not have sufficient financial resources or capacity to continue such efforts on our own.
To produce our products, we rely on a small number of key supply components.
All supply ingredients used to make our products are available from multiple suppliers.
However, the commodity prices of these raw materials may change a lot, and if the prices rise, the profits we can generate may fall.
If our manufacturing costs rise significantly, we may be forced to increase the price of the product, which may reduce the acceptance of the product in the market.
If our technology and products are not recognized by the market, we are unlikely to be profitable.
The potential market for products that our technology can be incorporated into is growing rapidly, and we have many successful competitors, including some of the largest and best --
Established companies in the world (
See: "Business Description-Competition. ”)
At this time, our technology is unproven in commercial use, the use of our technology by others, and the sales of our products are nominal.
Although CupriDyne Clean, our industrial odor control product, has gone through many commercial trials, few customers have purchased the product and we believe that the experience is early and incomplete.
The commercial success of products that combine our technology will depend on the adoption of our technology by business and consumer end users in various fields.
Market acceptance may depend on many factors, including: ● the willingness and ability of consumers and industry partners to adopt new technologies from companies with little or no history in the industry;
● We are able to convince potential industry partners and consumers that our technology is an attractive alternative to other competitive technologies;
● We are able to license our technology in a commercially effective manner;
● In the process of receiving our products, before we can expand production to obtain economies of scale, we continue to provide the ability to fund operations;
Our ability to overcome brand loyalty.
If the product that contains our technology does not reach a large market acceptance, then the demand for our technology itself may not develop as expected, in which case we are unlikely to make a profit.
Any revenue we may receive in the future is unpredictable, and our operating performance may fluctuate by quarter.
We believe that due to various factors, including: delays in the development of our or third-party products, our future operating results will fluctuate;
Market acceptance of products integrated into our technology;
Changes in the demand and price of products containing our technology;
Competition and pricing pressure from competitive products;
Litigation and results related to our intellectual property.
We expect that as we continue to develop and increase our marketing and licensing activities, our operating expenses will continue to fluctuate significantly in 2017 and beyond.
Although we expect revenue to be obtained in the future by licensing our technology, revenue may decline or not grow as expected, and our operating results may be severely compromised during a specific financial period
In addition, our performance in some quarters can not meet the expectations of stock market analysts and investors.
In this case, our share price is likely to fall.
Our product distribution experience is limited and we rely in part on third parties who may not be able to successfully sell our products.
Our product distribution experience is limited and is partly dependent on product distribution arrangements with third parties.
In our future products, we may only rely on third parties for product sales and distribution.
We also plan to license our technology to certain third parties in order to commercialize certain applications.
We expect that additional distribution agreements and licensing agreements will be entered into in the future and, if any, we may not be able to enter into these additional agreements in accordance with the terms that are in our favor.
In addition, we may have restrictions or no control over the distribution activities of these third parties.
These third parties can sell competing products and may put insufficient sales efforts into our products.
Therefore, our future product sales revenue, if any, will depend on the success of the efforts of these third parties.
We may not be able to attract or retain qualified senior talent.
We are confident that we are currently able to manage our current business with existing management teams.
However, with the expansion of our business scope, we need to obtain
Increase time service for senior management and others.
Highly competitive
There is no guarantee that we can attract or retain qualified senior talents.
Our failure to do so may adversely affect our ability to implement our business plans. As we add full-
Long-time personnel, indirect costs of our salaries and related projects will increase from the current level, and these increases may be huge depending on the number of people we hire and their compensation.
If we lose our key people or are unable to attract and retain more people, we may not be able to make a profit.
Our future success depends to a large extent on our senior management, especially Dennis P.
Calvert, our President and CEO, and Kenneth Rey yard, our chief scientific officer.
Loss of service from these officers or other members of our senior management may significantly delay or prevent the achievement of product development and other business objectives.
Due to the scientific nature of our business, we depend to a large extent on our ability to attract and retain qualified marketing, scientific and technical personnel.
The competition between expertise and technology is fierce.
In our field of activity, it is aimed at qualified personnel.
If we lose the service of key marketing, scientific and technical personnel or fail to recruit successfully, then our business growth can be seriously compromised.
At the moment, we do not retain key personnel insurance for any of our senior management, although management is evaluating the possibility of obtaining such insurance in the future.
Confidential agreements with employees and others may not be sufficient to prevent disclosure of trade secrets and other proprietary information.
To protect our proprietary technology and processes, we rely to a certain extent on confidential agreements with employees, potential licensing partners, potential manufacturing partners, test facilities, universities, consultants, agents and other organizations to whom we disclose proprietary information.
These agreements may not be able to effectively prevent the disclosure of confidential information and may not be able to provide appropriate remedies without authorization to disclose confidential information.
In addition, others may find trade secrets and proprietary information independently, in which case we cannot claim any trade secrets rights against these parties.
Cost and time
In order to enforce and determine the scope of our ownership, consumer litigation may be necessary and may adversely affect our competitive business position if the protection of trade secrets is not obtained or maintained.
Because in addition to patents, we rely on trade secrets and NDA to protect some of our intellectual property rights, and third parties may acquire and improperly use our proprietary information, this is risky for our competitive disadvantage.
We may not be able to detect unauthorized use or take appropriate and timely measures to enforce our intellectual property rights.
We may be subject to claims for product liability.
As a business that produces and sells products for use by consumers and institutions, we may be liable for any damages caused by our products, whether used or not in the intended manner.
Whether there is merit or not, any such claim of responsibility may be time --
Consuming and/or causing expensive litigation.
While we maintain general liability insurance, our insurance may not include the above type of potential claim or may not be sufficient to compensate for all liability that may be assumed.
Any imposition of liability that does not fall within or outside the scope of insurance may damage the results of our business and operations and you may lose part or all of the investment you have made, or maybe made in our company.
Actions by litigation or regulatory authorities may harm our business or distract our management.
Large, complex, or long-lasting litigation can cause us to generate significant spending and distract management.
For example, lawsuits by employees, former employees, shareholders, partners, customers or others, or actions taken by regulators, can be very expensive and seriously disrupt our business.
Such proceedings or actions may be brought against our company and/or our executives and directors from time to time.
Such lawsuits and actions are not uncommon and we cannot assure you that we will always be able to resolve such disputes or actions on conditions that are in the interest of our company.
If we are negatively promoted in terms of the safety or effectiveness of the product, our sales may be compromised.
If there is a concern about the safety or effectiveness of any product we sell, whether or not such concern has a generally accepted scientific or peer base
These concerns may adversely affect the market for these products.
Similarly, whether or not these claims are supported by applicable law, negative publicity may result in an increase in the number of product liability claims.
The licensing of our technology or the manufacture, use or sale of products containing our technology may infringe on the patent rights of others, and in the event of an intellectual property dispute, we may be forced to file a lawsuit.
If we infringe or are accused of infringing the patent rights of the other party, we may be required to seek permission in court, defend the infringement or challenge the validity of the patent.
The cost of patent litigation is high and time consuming.
We may not have sufficient resources to complete these operations successfully.
In addition, if we do not have permission to successfully defend the infringement or are unable to infringe on a patent declared invalid, we may suffer substantial monetary losses;
Major delays in marketing our current and proposed product candidates;
Cannot carry out or participate in the manufacture, use or sale of product candidates or processing methods requiring licenses;
Loss of patent protection for our inventions and products;
Or find that our patent is not enforceable, invalid, or the scope of protection is narrowed.
Parties making such claims may be able to obtain injunctive relief, which may effectively prevent our company's ability to further develop or commercialize our current and proposed product candidates in the United States and abroad, and may result in a ruling on substantial damages
Defense of any action or failure to obtain any such permission may cause significant harm to our company.
Regardless of the outcome, litigation can lead to a huge cost of our company and the transfer of work.
Our patent maintenance is expensive and our patent application prosecution is expensive, so we cannot apply for patent protection in many countries.
Our ability to compete effectively depends to a certain extent on our ability to develop and maintain technical know-how, or operate without infringing the exclusive rights of others, or a third party that obtains technical rights owned by others.
Pending patent applications related to our technology may not result in the publication of any patents or any published patents that will provide protection to competitors with similar technologies.
We must hire a patent lawyer to sue our patent application in the United States and international.
International patent protection requires that each foreign patent consultant that we wish to patent protection retain and pay the patent application fee, before or until the deadline for submission under the international Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”).
Therefore, taking into account our existing financial resources and technical needs, we choose to submit patent applications only in foreign countries where we believe that business opportunities require patent applications.
This has and will continue to result in the irrevocable loss of patent rights in all countries except a few foreign jurisdictions.
Patents we receive may be challenged, invalidated or circumvented in the future, or the rights created by these patents may not provide a competitive advantage.
We also rely on trade secrets, technical knowledge.
How to innovate continuously to develop and maintain our competitive position.
Others can independently develop basic and comparable proprietary information and technologies, or otherwise acquire our business secrets.
We face risks associated with future businesses outside the US.
Over time, we may develop business relationships outside of North America, and as these efforts proceed, we will face risks associated with these relationships, such as: Foreign exchange fluctuations;
Political, economic, financial and market instability,
Requirements for import and export licenses;
Trade restrictions;
Increase tariffs and taxes;
High inflation;
Restrictions on returning foreign profits to the United States;
The collection of accounts receivable is difficult and the collection period is long;
The law of intellectual property is not perfect, and the legal protection of intellectual property is missing;
Regulatory requirements;
Not familiar with foreign laws and regulations;
Changes in labor conditions and difficulties in staffing and managing international business.
Fluctuations in the cost of certain raw materials may adversely affect the operation and competitive price advantage of products containing our technology.
Most of the chemicals and other key materials we use in our business, such as minerals, fiber materials and packaging materials, are neither universally scarce nor price sensitive, but the prices of these chemicals and materials may be cyclical.
High water absorption resin (SAP)
Beads are a petrochemical derivative that, despite the current relatively stable prices, has been affected by cyclical scarcity and price fluctuations in recent years.
If our sales volume increases sharply, it may be difficult for us to get SAP beads or other raw materials at a favorable price.
Supply and demand factors that we cannot control usually affect the price of our raw materials.
We try to minimize the impact of price increases through production efficiency and the use of alternative suppliers.
If we are not able to minimize the impact of the increased cost of raw materials, our business, financial position, operating results and cash flow may be materially adversely affected.
Historically, some of our product sales have been severely affected by seasonal and weather fluctuations.
Industrial odor control products have proven to be very effective in controlling volatile organic compounds, which are released by steam generated from the decomposition waste.
This steam is the highest intensity at a temperature between 40 degrees Fahrenheit (
5 degrees Celsius)
140 degrees Fahrenheit (
60 degrees Celsius).
When the weather is cold or precipitation, our customers are not very easy to use our products, probably because the steam is not obvious, or in the case of precipitation, it can be washed or altered.
This leads to unpredictable use and sales patterns.
Risks associated with our common stock deals are small and liquid.
Our stock is currently quoted on the off-market (OTCQB).
Quotations on OTCQB make it more difficult to buy and sell our shares, and from time to time result in a significant decline in the frequency of transactions and volume of transactions.
Continued trading of OTCQB may also adversely affect our ability to obtain financing in the future, as our stock liquidity declines, as well as other restrictions by certain investors on investing in OTCQB trading securities
Although we intend to go public on the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”)
Or when our company is eligible, when it is listed on Nasdaq or other stock exchanges, there is no guarantee that our common shares will be listed.
The market price of our stock may fluctuate.
Because we have very few stock transactions, even in one day, its price will change dramatically in the short term.
The investment in our stock will be affected by this volatility and therefore will face significant risks.
Due to many factors, the market price of our common stock may fluctuate greatly, including: Developments in patents or ownership;
We or our competitors announce technological innovation;
We or our competitors release new products or new contracts;
Due to the development fee level and other factors, the actual or expected changes in our operating results;
Changes in the financial estimates of securities analysts and whether our future earnings have reached or exceeded such estimates;
The status and trends of our industry;
New accounting standards;
(1) overall economic, political, market and other factors;
And the occurrence of any risks described in this prospectus.
Since our stocks are considered "penny stocks", it may be difficult for you to sell them.
Because if the transaction price of our common stock remains below $5, our common stock will not be quoted on the NASDAQ National Market or the NASDAQ Capital Market, nor will it be listed on the National Stock Exchange.
00/share, we expect that in the foreseeable future, the transactions of our common stock will be required by certain rules promulgated by the revised Securities Trading Act of 1934 (
Trade Act)
This requires additional disclosure by the broker
A dealer in any transaction related to a stock defined as a penny stock (
In general, any non-
Nasdaq stock securities with a market price of less than $5.
00/copy, with certain exceptions).
These rules require the delivery of a disclosure schedule explaining the penny stock market and its associated risks prior to any penny stock transaction and the imposition of various sales practice requirements on brokers
Dealers who sell penny shares to people other than established customers and recognized investors (
Usually defined as an investor with a net asset of more than $1,000,000 or an annual income of more than $200,000, or more than $300,000 with a spouse).
For these types of transactions, brokers-
The dealer must make a special suitability decision for the buyer and receive the buyer's written consent to the transaction before the sale. The broker-
The dealer must also disclose the commission payable to the broker
Current bids and offers for dealers and penny stocks, if the broker-
Dealer is the only market
Manufacturer, this company
The dealer must disclose this fact and the broker-
Control of the market by dealers.
Such information must be provided to the customer either orally or in writing before or before the written confirmation of the trade sent to the customer.
Monthly statements must be sent to disclose the most recent price information of the penny stock held in the account and information about the penny stock limited market.
Additional burden on brokers
Such a request can prevent brokers
The trader trades on our common stock, which may severely limit the market liquidity of our common stock and the ability of the holders of common stock to sell the stock.
Because our stock is considered a "penny stock", the new rules make it more difficult to remove the restrictive legend.
Rules formulated by financial industry regulators (FINRA)require broker-
Traders conduct due diligence before storing Unlimited common stock of penny shares, therefore, some brokers-
Traders, including large national companies, refused to deposit previously restricted common shares of penny shares.
Therefore, it may be more difficult to buy shares in our private securities offering to deposit with brokers
Sell the shares in the open market.
Because in the foreseeable future, we will not pay dividends, and shareholders will benefit from holding common shares only if the common shares appreciate.
We have never announced or paid cash dividends to shareholders.
We intend to retain any revenue that may arise in the future to finance operations.
Therefore, any potential investor who is expected to need to receive the current dividend from the investment should not buy our common stock.

Our products take advantage of the power of iodine-"the best solution for nature"-to eliminate contaminants that threaten our water, health and quality of life.
Our inventions, patents, certificates, and partners-create the best --of-
When we create value for our shareholders and bring benefits to our world, we provide first-class products and technologies for commercialism.
Invent-three platform technologies we have three patented platform technologies with different product opportunities across multiple industries-advanced oxidation systems (“AOS”)
The CupriDyne and the Ison River.
All is used for every feature-
Natural iodine molecules
Although they all use iodine, they are very different in terms of the method of using iodine and the form and composition of iodine used, so for each commercial application, their function and value proposition may be very different.
AOSThe AOS is our invention to combine iodine, filter water materials and electricity in water treatment devices.
Our AOS produces extremely high oxidation potentials within the device to achieve extremely high disinfection rates to eliminate infectious biological pathogens such as E. coli, L. mononcell hyperplasia and E. coli, and
It can also be oxidized and decomposed.
Reduce or otherwise eliminate soluble organic pollutants such as acids, solvents, sulfur compounds, oil and natural gas
Products and medicines
Products that are common in a variety of contaminated water sources.
The very high oxidation potential of aos produced using extremely low energy is the key.
The term "oxidation potential" refers to the ability of antioxidants to "break down" the properties of materials by removing electrons and sometimes by adding oxygen.
Two common examples of oxidation are: the shipyard anchor is rusted by salty air, and the wood is broken down by fire and oxygen into ashes.
The key to our AOS is its ability to generate extremely high oxidation potentials in continuous flow devices, thus attacking contaminants that flow through its water.
The extremely high oxidation potential enables AOS to achieve what some researchers at the University of Alberta call "unprecedented results in disinfection performance.
"In addition to its significantly superior disinfection rate, AOS also has advanced water treatment technologies (such as UV, electricity-
Chlorine or odor oxidation.
For some applications, it is this value proposition that sets AOS technology on top of other water treatment options, because AOS may allow safe and reliable water treatment at a fraction of the cost of a competitor, even advanced water treatment can be realized in originally costly applications.
Our AOS embodies rest.
Through science, it led to the cooperation of BioLargo.
Build more
The annual research chair, whose goal is to work with Canada's top five oil companies to address contaminated water issues related to Canada's oil sands, Department of Engineering, University of Alberta, regional waters and various environmental agencies of the government of Canada.
Our work continues to expand into many areas of commercial applications, with a focus on waste
Water treatment, food processing, agriculture, oil and gas.
We are also in the early stages of assessing opportunities for shipping, rainwater discharge recovery/recycling and drinking water.
Our AOS is an award.
Winning the invention of scientific and engineering financial support and grant support provided by Canadian federal and provincial funding agencies.
Financial support is expanding as business development continues to work on the latest AOS design.
We believe that AOS has important and substantial business opportunities in every area of the water treatment industry and we believe that it should find early market applications in helping to manage wastewater.
After extensive verification testing and improvement of the basic operating system, we started a commercial prototype development project, which included important third-party verification research and the design of tis computer automation system.
These next steps will bring us a product that can be used in the commercial market.
The project is being implemented in collaboration with technicians from the north Alberta Institute of Technology (“NAIT”)
The Center for sensor and system integration, as well as the chairman of NAIT's Applied Biotechnology industry research.
Supported by financial support from Alberta's innovative nano dp project, the project focuses on developing the first
Prototype system, which integrates a sensor platform to monitor various water parameters in real time online.
Time data collection.
The first "Alpha" prototype of AOS was delivered on August at our annual technical workshop.
This Alpha AOS system is able to further expand and test in an industrial environment and has begun to develop a "Beta" unit for the first phase of commercial trials.
Once this Beta prototype development phase is completed, we intend to focus on producing multiple commercial-ready pilot units for testing with a wide range of interested industrial customers and obtaining regulatory input when required
We are refining our strategic plan to focus our efforts more narrowly on markets where we believe we can make important contributions, accelerate adoption rates and make meaningful economic progress.
Our AOS is being developed as a flexible modular system to allow a wide range of sizes, configuration and functional uses that will be deployed to meet the various unique and special requirements of various industry customers.
In February 2017, Mark Lambert joined our team as a "strategic advisor" to help us develop and refine our commercial plans for AOS. Mr.
With over 25 years of senior management experience, Lambert has extensive experience in the water, renewable energy and environmental services industries.
CupriDyne®CupriDyne technology is used to efficiently deliver iodine in a variety of products.
It can be delivered in any physical form and can be combined with other ingredients such as spices in our odor control products and surface active substances in our stain removal and odor control products.
It is usually possible to add additional ingredients without sacrificing actual and safe functions and oxidation potential.
Our products are designed to include liquid, spray, gel, powder, coating, and absorbent.
The key to CupriDyne is safety and effectiveness.
Each of our products is designed to provide iodine safely and precisely for effective odor control
Removal of large doses or surface cleaning, and in some applications
Disinfection of spectrum.
The main ingredients of CupriDyne, and-
"Recognized safety" products (“G. R. A. S”)by the U. S.
The Food and Drug Administration serves as the basic form of food additives.
CupriDyne's commercial product opportunities are diverse, we have a wide product design menu at all stages of commercial and licensing development, which is discussed in detail below in "business, family and personal care products "section.
We believe that CupriDyne is unique.
Iodine, which is familiar to most of us, is sold in pharmacies, used in hospitals, has serious limitations-it is considered toxic and can lead to staining and contains a limited dose of active oxidized ingredients.
On the other hand, our CupriDyne technology directly addresses many of these shortcomings-it provides an oxidation component of iodine (“free iodine”)
From very small doses to very large doses, the accuracy is more than 30 times that of chlorine performance.
We can provide neither iodine. toxic and non-
Therefore, its practicality is far beyond the application scope of historical products.
Our CupriDyne technology is flexible and allows the product design to contain different dose levels.
Some products are designed to focus on smell and do not act as "disinfectant ".
"Some product designs do so, and making such a request requires regulatory approval.

Computer automatic control system is the key to its success.
The system has a controlled measurement, flow rate, dosing and iodine extraction/removal technology, as well as an automatic tracking system that accurately delivers iodine for calibrated doses to water vapor or water containers.
The Isan system has proven to significantly reduce the incidence of fungal growth, corruption, microorganisms and pathogens in water and food.
The system is able to operate at a high flow rate commensurate with the industrial disinfection requirements.
The Isan system was originally developed in Australia and initially registered with the Australian pesticide and veterinary drug administration (“APVMA”)
