09 October in Field Trail

Place: Wastewater Treatment Pond, Kibbutz Givat-Brener, Israel Date: July 23, 2017 Setup: A waste water pond with 60,000 m2 water-surface (Fig. 1) was heavily infested with a cyanobacterial bloom. The water was treated with 250 kg Lake Guard WhiteTM (85% w/w NaDCC based formulation). The reservoir’s average depth is 15 m. [caption id="attachment_14015" align="aligncenter"...

Follow up use of  Lake Guard Blue™ at Lev-HaNegev Reservoir, “Mekorot” Place: Lev Hanegev Reservoir, Israel Date: June, 2017   Rationale: A second, follow-up pilot was performed 3 weeks after the previous treatment, designed to demonstrate the superiority of the Lake Guard Blue™ in the field. The treatment was applied at the request of Mekorot,...

Commercial Application Demonstration of Lake Guard Blue™

29 June in Field Trail

Place: Lev Hanegev Reservoir, Israel Date: May 2017 Rationale: The “Lev Hanegev” reservoir is managed by Mekorot, Israel’s national water company, supplying reclaimed wastewater for irrigation purposes. The reservoir is prone to repeated algal blooms (diatoms or Chlorella-like sp) which clog irrigation pipes and mandate regular treatment. Mekorot is currently treating the reservoir periodically...

31 May in Field Trail

Place: Maagan Michael, Israel Date: May 2017 A trial against Prymnesium sp. was conducted in Kibbutz Maagan Michael, Israel, in collaboration with the local Fish Health Laboratory. We concluded that two serial treatments of 50-100 ppm of Lake Guard H2O2™ at a time intervals of 3 hours was sufficient to eliminate Prymnesium...

Lake Guard™ Implemented in Aquaculture

31 May in Uncategorized

Place: Safari National Zoo - Ramat Gan, Israel Date: August-September 2016 Rationale A growing number of publications indicates that cyanotoxins accumulate in the tissues of organisms living in infested waters and can be transferred through the food chain to preying animals or humans. These findings are putting the entire aquaculture industry in jeopardy,...

Medium Sized Efficacy and Manual Delivery Proof of Concept

30 May in Field Trail

Place: Greensboro AL, USA Date: Aug.-Sep. 2015 Rationale This trial was intended to investigate whether a single treatment with Lake Guard White™ can trigger a sufficient and long-lasting collapse of the cyanobacterial population in large water bodies and to confirm the usability of the Lake Guard™ when applied manually. Trial Setup A field trial was...

Evaluation of Delivery Mechanism in Large Scale Aerial Application

30 May in Field Trail

Place: Mesilat Zion Reservoir, Israel Date: July 2015 Rationale Our previous trials established that a floating, slow-releasing algaecide is significantly more effective in controlling cyanobacterial blooms than the same compounds in their generic formulations. As a next step, BlueGreen Water Technologies set out to evaluate the usability of the Lake GuardTM as an...

Dose Ranging/ Mode of Action Establishment Trial

30 May in Field Trail

Place: Mishmar Ayalon, Israel Date: June-July 2015 Technical Setup Extensive trials in Mishmar Ayalon (Israel, 31°52'20.57"N/34°56'36.36"E, June-July, 2015) were carried out in two small artificial tanks of 3.0 cubic meters each. Each tank was filled with dechlorinated water previously used for growing ornamental fish and was further fertilized with 1.0 liter of a...

Proof-of-Concept Field Trial

30 May in Field Trail

Place: Auburn, AL USA Date: June 2014 Summary In its first proof-of concept trial BlueGreen Water Technologies treated cyanobacterial blooms with the innovative floating formulation that is the basis for its products. A single treatment resulted in the immediate reduction of surface cyanobacteria by 78%. Importantly, the cyanobacterial populations deeper in the water...
