Innovative water treatment technology to remove contaminants with lower resource consumption, smaller waste production, and reduced impact on the environment.

Ion Exchange

Our continuous ion exchange technology has been specifically adapted for water treatment applications. It originates from the former Soviet Union where around 40 plants for metal recovery installed by third parties are still in operation.

The continuous counter-current approach brings ion exchange to a range of industries where it traditionally isn’t used, and it has a range of advantages over conventional fixed bed ion exchange systems, including:

  • Optimised contaminant removal and use of the ion exchange resin’s loading capacity
  • Higher tolerance to suspended solids and feed variations
  • Lower chemical use and less waste
  • Production of highly concentrated product streams

Encapsulated Bacteria Lenses

Our encapsulated bacteria technology uses lens shaped PVA encapsulation to provide intensified ammonia and nitrate removal processes. Water and dissolved impurities diffuse through the lenses and come in contact with the bacteria, causing targeted reactions to occur.

BIOCLENS® lenses are a game changer for bacterial water treatment, providing:

  • Ability to consistently reach extremely low ammonia and nitrate levels
  • Smaller site footprints
  • High activity rates in difficult conditions
    • Low temperature
    • Saline solutions
    • High feed concentrations
  • Low energy demand and lifecycle cost

Tailored Solutions

Clean TeQ Water provides tailored solutions that directly meet the needs of our customers.

In the water treatment sector, no two projects are the same. This means water projects often require customisation to ensure robust results are achieved at lower capital and operating costs. This is certainly the case with hard to treat industrial wastewater, mine processing water, and often even for water re-use projects with strict regulations for brine and sludge disposal.

We provide solutions that best meet the customer’s requirements based on a deep understanding from over 25 years of experience in the water treatment market. We ensure that our solutions are:

  • Designed using technologies best suited to the project
  • Sized for the required flowrate, minimising capital and operating costs
  • Compliant to local regulations
  • Robust and reliable for easy operation and maintenance

Selective Contaminant Removal

Our water treatment technologies aim to selectively remove contaminants from water when it is beneficial to do so. Membrane technologies are often used in water treatment projects and filter out all contaminants from the water. Scaling and fouling often limit the recovery of membrane systems in the field, increasing the volume of difficult to manage waste.

Selectively removing contaminants allows:

  • Higher water recovery and lower waste production
  • Lower capital and operating costs
  • Potential value in contaminant recovery
  • Recycling of processing streams by removing impurities
  • Increased price of product streams by removing nuisance contaminants.

Technologies

Selective contaminant removal and solids filtration using our patented continuous ion exchange technology.

Two CIF® modules in series to first remove multivalent cations (e.g. calcium, magnesium), then multivalent anions (e.g. sulphate), avoiding saline brines in a robust membrane free process.

Using CIF® to remove scale forming compounds to achieve very high recovery from reverse osmosis, and using the reverse osmosis brine to regenerate CIF® in a chemical free process.

Specifically chosen bacteria encapsulated in PVA lenses, capable of removing ammonia and nitrate to very low levels (<1 ppm)

Using CIF® to selectively remove nitrate and BIOCLENS® to destroy the nitrate in the brine, reducing the salt consumption and waste since the salt is reused.

Using a dry air stream below boiling temperature to evaporate water and brines without pressure vessels, with high scaling resistance to handle the most contaminated and difficult to treat streams.
