ACTI-Mag for wastewater

An innovative and environmentally friendly solution for wastewater treatment.

Let’s solve global challenges and yours, ­­together.

the issues we solve

Focusing on wastewater management and corrosion prevention, we’ve developed innovative materials and a cost-effective approach that help utilities, councils and industry manage odour and asset corrosion in an increasingly urban world, without compromising the planet.

Wastewater and sewage odour control

Calix ACTI-Mag is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce hydrogen sulphide generation, and eliminate odour issues from wastewater.

Fats oils and greases control in wastewater

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.

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 water authorities.

Biochemical & Chemical Oxygen Demand Reduction

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.

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.
