Water Utility

Climate change coupled with population growth results in wastewater becoming an increasingly critical challenge for all councils and water authorities.

A growing sewer network create issues such as infrastructure damage, odour complaints and potential health and safety hazards, as well as accelerated corrosion of sewer assets, pump station wells, discharge manholes and treatment plants.

Your challenges

A fast-growing sewer network and the disposal of untreated or poorly treated wastewater in natural waterways can lead to dramatic consequences on biodiversity, the quality of our water resources and the health and safety of people.

With rapid urbanisation and development, and increasing environmental pressure on industrial emissions, there is an increasing pressure on water utilities to find safer and more sustainable solutions to prevent odour, protect existing and new infrastructure, and improve wastewater treatment performance.

While wastewater management and pollution prevention are a priority, waste-to-energy programs are increasingly needed to improve the productivity of treatment facilities by maximising the economics of biogas generation from anaerobic systems.

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.

Find out more about our dosing solutions

We work together in ways others don’t, considering the long-term effect of our actions, never satisfied with the status quo.

Calix has its own direct delivery, service and support capabilities and also has an established a network of local distributors and partners that can provide the best solution for your specific needs and ensure you receive excellent customer service and support, wherever you are located.
