Wineries need to maintain low effluent levels , to adjust to fluctuations in flow and strength, and most importantly, to reuse water in the vineyard.
Find a sustainable way to treat this wastewater is not only relevant to make outstanding wine, but also important to protect bottom line and preserve the health of your environment for future growth.
Furthermore, some of the hydrogen sulphide odour generated by bacteria within the waste pit was drifting back through the pipes and close to the cellar doors. Hydrogen sulphide has a very strong odour even at very low concentrations and can bother tourists during their wine tasting visit.

Calix ACTI-Mag slowly releases hydroxyl ions, which breakdown low-density, large-chain fatty acids that can then be readily digested by bacteria in wastewater.Find out more
Calix ACTI-Mag supports bacteria and speeds up the breakdown of complex organic chains into smaller units – resulting in improving Biochemical/Chemical Oxygen Demand (BOD/COD) in the final effluent.Find out more
Calix ACTI-Mag is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce hydrogen sulphide generation, and eliminate odour issues from wastewater.Find out more
Calix ACTI-Mag can enhance the removal of Phosphorus (P) and Nitrogen (N) from wastewater.Find out more

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.
Calix owns and operates a mine in South Australia as well as production, testing facilities and manufacturing plants. The ability to hydrate our high surface area MgO in our patented, close-to customer facilities creates multiple benefits for our customers and local communities.
Our AS/NZS ISO 9001 certified quality system and safety, health and environmental management system are vital elements of our engineering and quality services.
Calix’s solutions are manufactured using Calix Technology, which involves grinding minerals to particles around one thousandth of a millimetre in size, and then “flash” heating them in a very short time at up to 1.000 degrees Celsius. As trapped gases in the mineral “bubble out” of the particles, we snap freeze them in a very high energy state, leaving a very porous, honey-comb-like structure.
New materials produced by Calix Technology are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits. This means it has the high reactivity of nano-material, without the potential health and handling issues.
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.
Calix’s solutions for Municipalities help us contribute to many global goals, particularly SDG 6 – reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimising release of hazardous chemicals and materials, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse globally.
Our Sustainability Series dives deeper into each of these challenges and explains how Calix contributes.Read our Sustainability Series
