First Technical Services Agreement Signed with BEIE for HIROX® Plant in China

18 March 2024

Clean TeQ Water has signed a Technical Services Agreement with BEIE to assist the delivery of the first stage of a HIROX® plant for a coal mining customer in China. This first train, treating 4,800 cubic meters per day, will provide demonstration of the process and which will ultimately treat over 50,000 cubic meters per day. This agreement follows on from the Technology Licensing Agreement signed in December 2023 whereby BEIE prepaid the licence fee for two years before reverting to a royalty payment on sales. 

Clean TeQ’s scope of works includes initial designs on a range of process, electrical, civil, and mechanical engineering tasks, and preparing documentation for commissioning and operation and maintenance of the HIROX® plant. BEIE is taking full responsibility for the manufacture and delivery of the plant which is expected to be commissioned in 2026. 

Clean TeQ Water Signs Technical Services Agreement with BEIE for HIROX® Plant in China

The HIROX® process brings a range of benefits to the water treatment market in China, where significant water scarcity and pollution challenges make advanced high recovery water treatment plants crucial. HIROX® provides a very high conversion of feed water to usable water while at the same time reducing waste.

HIROX® is particularly valuable in industrial applications, municipal water treatment, and in areas where water resources are scarce or highly contaminated, aligning with China’s goals for sustainable development and environmental protection. 

Following our recent signing of the Technical Licence Agreement with BEIE, it is very satisfying to already be assisting BEIE in the design of the first full scale HIROX® plant in China. This will plant becomes the reference site for HIROX® in the Chinese market, a market that has a potentially huge number of applications. The execution of the first project also aligns with Clean TeQ’s goal of moving towards technology licensing agreements as the preferred business model in the delivery of Clean TeQ technology-powered water projects globally.
