Our Solutions

Calix is a team of dedicated people developing a unique, patented technology to provide industrial solutions that address global sustainability challenges.

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.

Fats Oils and Greases Control

Phosphate removal from wastewater

Calix ACTI-Mag can enhance the removal of Phosphorus (P) and Nitrogen (N) from wastewater.

Phosphate Removal

pH adjustment and alkalinity boost

A safe and cost effective alternative to the use of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) or other chemicals for wastewater alkalinity and pH adjustment.

pH adjustment and alkalinity boost

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.

Biogas Management

Sewer asset corrosion protection

PROTECTA-Mag prevents corrosion by raising surface pH, thus neutralising acids and inhibiting the formation of acid-producing bacteria. PROTECTA-Mag offers an innovative and cost-effective solution for corrosion prevention in horizontal sewer assets.

Asset Corrosion Protection

Lake and pond remediation

Calix AQUA-Cal+ addresses problems associated with lake remediation such as fish kills, odour, bad algae blooms, little circulation and sludge build-ups.

Lake and pond remediation

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.

 

Odour Control

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.

BOD/COD reduction

Water treatment for Aquaculture

Helping aquaculture improve productivity to meet the nutritional needs of a growing population.

AQUA-Cal+

Mineral fertiliser and crop protection

Calix BOOSTER-Mag is a revolutionary agricultural solution for increased yield, more efficient fertiliser usage, insect / pest management, and fungal control.
