BIONEX™ (Complete Nitrate Removal)

BIONEX™

Complete Nitrate Removal

BIONEX™ is an innovative combination of our ion exchange and encapsulated bacteria technologies, designed to efficiently remove nitrate to very low levels.

Summary

BIONEX™ uses a combination of our CIF® (Continuous Ionic Filtration) technology, and BIOCLENS® (lens encapsulated bacteria) technology to selectively remove nitrate from water.

CIF® selectively removes nitrate from the water using ion exchange and concentrates it into a small brine volume. The brine is treated using BIOCLENS® to convert the nitrate into harmless nitrogen gas. This allows the brine to be recycled and used again to regenerate the ion exchange resin, greatly reducing chemical consumption and waste production of the system.

Benefits

CONSISTENTLY REACH LOW NITRATE CONCENTRATIONS OF <1PPM IN ALL CONDITIONS
VERY HIGH WATER RECOVERY AND LOW WASTE PRODUCTION DUE TO BRINE REUSE
SMALLER SITE FOOTPRINTS BY USING ION EXCHANGE ON THE MAIN STREAM
LOW OPERATIONAL COSTS EVEN FOR LARGE FLOWRATES

Applications

BIONEX™ efficiently removes nitrate even for large flowrates (> 10 MLD) and can be applied to a range of industries:

BIONEX™ (Complete Nitrate Removal)

Clean TeQ Water has completed successful BIONEX™ pilots, and been awarded a contract for a BIONEX™ water treatment plant in China. The plant has been designed to treat and remove nitrate from 12,000 m3 /day of coal mine in pit ground water to below 1 ppm in order to comply with local regulations governing the disposal of mine water. A complete case study of the project will be added to the website upon its completion.
