Your blow off value opens when you let off the throttle so you don't damage the blower impeller. All that boost needs to go somewhere and when the throttle blade closes it forces it back into the blower....The BOV opens to prevent this. As mentioned above the wastegate is commonly used on turbo set ups to limit the amount of boost a turbo will make. Since a blower uses pulleys you generally don't need a wastegate but it has been done before. The idea is you can use a small pulley to up your boost and make more torque down low but the safety of a wastegate to limit excess boost numbers up top.
