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.

WHY CHOOSE CALIX

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.

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.

Faster reactivity = less costs

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.
