BIONEX™ (Bio + Ion Exchange)

BIONEX™ is a combination of our BIOCLENS™ (encapsulated bacteria lens) technology and ion exhange – commonly our CIF® (Continuous Ionic Filtration) technology. The ion exchange process selectively removes ammonia and nitrates from the water, and the spent resin is regenerated using brine. The spent brine is then treated by our BIOCLENS™ technology to treat the nitrate and ammonia, allowing it to be reused. This minimizes brine consumption and spent brine production, gearing the system towards zero liquid discharge. Using our BIONEX™ technology, a tertiary treatment solution with total nitrogen (TN) effluent concentrations below 5 ppm can be achieved.
