ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND COSTS

Treating wastewater from water utilities and industries has a dual potential benefit. Treated water can be recycled to help cut down industries’ fresh water use, and the waste load in wastewater can be converted to biogas and used to produce electricity.

Anaerobic digestion is a natural process that converts organic matter present in wastewater sludge into biogas for electricity, as well as significantly reducing the contaminant load in treated water.

The energy produced from the biogas can be fed back into the grid or used in other parts of the production process, which represents a real opportunity to reduce energy costs.

ACTI-Mag for Biogas Management

Calix ACTI-Mag can increase the quality and quantity of the biogas coming from anaerobic
systems, and provide a significant economic boost for food processing plants and water utilities.

Key Benefits

Energy from biogas produced from anaerobic digestion of wastewater sludge is a powerful source of renewable energy, don’t waste the waste!

Boost biogas volume by up to 20%
Increased power generated from biogas
Reduced soluble phosphate in the final waste stream
Less corrosion in generators and heat exchangers

Watch our Webinar: Boosting energy from a cogeneration anaerobic digester

Anaerobic digestion is a way of adding value to operations. It consists of converting organic matter present in the wastewater sludge into biogas for energy, while reducing the organic load in the treated water. But biogas production can be tricky. In this webinar, Michael explains how you can use ACTI-Mag to improve wastewater treatment performance and boost biogas generation.

HOW DOES ACTI-Mag WORK?

ACTI-Mag, with its unique high surface area and high localised pH surface, is able to break down complex organic matter by hydrolysis into smaller units, which allows the biological system to convert the organic matter into biogas more quickly, and improve the quality.

Boost biogas volume

by up to 20% !

ACTI-Mag has been demonstrated to increase the quality of the biogas coming from the anaerobic system. Improved biogas quality including higher methane and lower H2S content improves the calorific value, which means improved performance from the electric generators. Improved biogas quality also means a reduced requirement on biogas scrubbers.

ACTI-Mag also provides more alkalinity and more stable pH control weight-to-weight than caustic soda. These two key parameters are very important to the health of any biological reactor.

ACTI-Mag offers a range of other benefits

Significantly safer than other traditional alkalis, ACTI-Mag is a very cost competitive option for pH adjustment in waste streams, as well as for several other applications including odour and FOG (fat, oil and grease) control, or phosphorus removal from wastewater.

ACTI-Mag for wastewater

Calix ACTI-Mag is made using Calix technology to produce a unique, stable and very high surface area magnesium hydroxide formula that helps reduce the formation of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), eliminating odour issues, protect ageing assets, while improving the performance of wastewater treatment.

The Calix difference

People, unique technology, partners, and track record

Leading edge technology

Calix core technology makes high surface area materials (with a honeycomb-like structure), giving you a price and a reactivity advantage.

Our materials are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the health/safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits.

Faster reactivity = less costs

Manufactured in Australia

Fully integrated supply chain – from mine to customer

Calix is able to offer better service, reliability and performance to its
customers because it controls the entire production process from mining
of raw materials, processing and production.

Chemical dosing systems

Calix leverages a culture of innovation to provide fully customised services such as design expertise, engineering know-how, detail engineering, installation, piping and commissioning services to provide turnkey systems for chemical dosing of Magnesium Hydroxide Liquid (MHL).

Our engineered and cost-effective solutions are tailored to meet your specific needs and budget. Quick to install – our modular dosing units can be delivered on site by truck and are fast to set up and connect.
