Meet Ken Code, Chief Science Officer at BioLargo Water, Inc.

BioLargo Water is made up of numerous talented individuals working toward a common goal, building a disruptive, affordable water treatment system to impact countless industries. Behind the scientists and engineers of our R&D team is Ken Code, the Chief Science Officer of BioLargo. Ken is the inventor of the Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) and the innovator behind nearly every BioLargo patent and technology to-date, and an intrepid entrepreneur. Ken has worked, one way or another, in chemistry since the mid-sixties, and is an enthusiastic teacher for every intern and student that comes through BioLargo Water’s doors. I’ve interviewed Ken about his role at the company, and transcripts of that interview can be found below. This is the first in a series of posts, which we’ll produce over time, introducing the people behind BioLargo water, including engineers, scientists, management, and even students.

Q: What was your first experience with research (to the best of your memory)?

Biolargo Water Joined by Leading Researchers Across North America

It takes an enormous amount of time, money, and talent to carry a new technology from concept to commercialization. To surmount these hurdles, we engaged brilliant, hardworking university researchers across the continent. The result? We’ve created the most ground-breaking water treatment system in recent memory, the AOS, which is looking to disrupt countless water markets in ways that some of our largest competitors cannot dream.
              How did we get here? A substantial amount of AOS R&D was done by BioLargo Water’s own science staff, but a good portion of it required specialized equipment, niche research expertise, and years of arduous work, so we took a collaborative strategy. We fostered an extensive network of leading researchers across North America to further our research goals using world-class equipment and techniques. Much of this is attributed to Dr. Richard Smith, President of BioLargo Water with a keen eye for R&D talent. Under his guidance, w…
