March 30, 2017

BlueInGreen CEO and President Chris Milligan, PE was selected to speak at the US NorCal Wastewater TAG Showcase in Oakland this month. The event, hosted by East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) and Isle Utilities, was designed to introduce the Technology Approval Group (TAG) concept to regional utilities and gauge interest in establishing a regular wastewater technology forum in Northern California.

BlueInGreen, provider of the world’s most efficient method of delivering dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and ozone into water, was one of three solution providers invited to present at the showcase. During his presentation, Milligan discussed the company’s recent success in improving and maintaining water quality in a wide variety of applications, as well as the company’s recent successes in the municipal, industrial and ecological markets.

“It was a great opportunity to meet with key industry leaders and decision makers across Northern California,” said Milligan. “TAG is a great platform for water innovation, and BlueInGreen is proud to have a voice in that conversation.”

“I’d like to thank Isle for recognizing BIG’s solutions, as well as our momentum in the marketplace,” Milligan said. “We look forward to working alongside Isle to protect, improve and maintain our most valuable shared resource – water.”
