Axine Water Technologies, developers of a breakthrough, low-cost, chemical-free solution for treating high concentrations of complex, toxic organics and ammonia in industrial wastewater, has announced it has been awarded the Innovation Tracker accreditation by BlueTech® Research.
The award recognises the advanced nature of Axine within the water tech industry and officially registers the company within the BlueTech Research innovation Tracker.
Comprising over 500 companies, this Tracker provides a live, online tool to track the most important innovative technology companies in the industry. Innovation Tracker companies are hand-selected based on a number of criteria, mapping key companies and technologies within the water sector, providing users with the ability to filter through companies and gather comprehensive data on each technology.
Jonathan Rhone, President and CEO of Axine, commented: “It is a tremendous honour for Axine to be recognised by BlueTech Research alongside so many global water technology leaders. This is further validation that our novel technology approach to treating some of the most difficult wastewater in water-intensive industries like chemical manufacturing and oil and gas has the potential to fundamentally change wastewater treatment in these challenging environments”.
Axine’s revolutionary method for treating high concetrations of non-biodegradable, toxic wastewater without chemicals and at a lower cost compared to conventional solutions centres around a proprietary electrolytic cell that uniquely and effectively oxidises a wide range of organics and ammonia converting them to carbon dioxide, water, and nitrogen gas (while recovering a high-purity stream of hydrogen gas for use as a clean fuel).
Based on lab testing to-date, Axine has validated superior performance and economics of its novel electrochemical oxidation technology on real-world wastewaters and expects to deliver its first field pilots early next year.
