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

  • Calix Technology

Faster reactivity = less costs

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.

To learn more about how Calix technology works, click here.

  • Calix supply chain

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, production, testing facilities and close-to-customers manufacturing plants.

From mine to customer!

  • Continuous Improvement

Calix is committed to providing process development, manufacture, delivery and application of mineral based
products and services that meet the needs of our customers.

We aim to ensure that quality is everyone’s aim throughout the organisation and that each employee has a sound understanding of the importance of our quality management system and their direct effect to our continuous success.

Our AS/NZS ISO 9001 certified quality system and safety, health and environmental management system are vital elements of our engineering and quality services.

  • A culture of innovation

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).
