Clean TeQ Water expands technology platform through acquisition of bacterial immobilization technology, production lines and patents

Clean TeQ Holdings Limited has expanded the Company’s water technology platform with the acquisition, via its wholly owned subsidiary Clean TeQ Water Pty Ltd, of an encapsulated bacteria technology from LentiKats.

LentiKats’ technology is focused on encapsulated bacteria, which is useful in water treatment applications given its ability to treat and remove over 90% of nitrates or ammonia from waste water. Encapsulated bacteria are bacterial organisms used to break down harmful nitrates and ammonia which have been coated in a PVA-gel, providing protection against other chemicals in the water stream which would otherwise kill the bacteria.

The acquisition of the LentiKats technology will enable Clean TeQ to produce CleanBio lenses in-house, removing the reliance on using a third-party supplier and improving reliability, quality control and reducing cost. Internal production will also deliver improved efficiency by further customizing the product for different uses.

Clean TeQ is setting up a production facility for CleanBio lenses in China for applications in its growing pipeline of global projects including its Chinese flagship project with the Hoyo Water treatment company.
