Markets

Our technologies perform in a myriad of applications where water needs to be purified and recycled economically, waste reduced and suspended resources of value reclaimed. Our R&D work is currently focussed on the following markets. If yours is not among them, let’s talk.

Lithium
  • Lithium
  • Green Hydrogen
  • Desalination
  • Food & Beverage
  • Water & Wastewater

Lithium

The transition to net minus zero and electrification is driving the demand for lithium way above projected supply capacities. Tapping into unconventional sources like geothermal waters or discharges from oil and gas or mining production is vital. Doing so also helps localise the supply of this critical mineral, creating jobs and resilience to global supply chain volatility.

Our Direct Lithium Extraction (DLA) solution has proven to perform better than many other technological approaches. The key component is our highly selective lithium membrane, coupled with reverse osmosis and ion exchange technologies.

Together with forward-thinking developers, we are forging the energy transition.

Green Hydrogen

As energy systems transition to greener sources, the role of hydrogen is growing quickly. Whether brown, blue, gold or green, the availability of water is critical. Where electrolysis is part of the process, this water needs to be ultrapure. Furthermore, green hydrogen development is most often decentralised and sometimes off-grid. It cannot be done in competition to regular water supplies. Being able, therefore to convert unconventional water sources to ultrapure water can often determine the viability of such projects.

Our technologies helps tap into unconventional water sources and generate ultrapure water far more efficiently at a lower energy/carbon cost.

Desalination

Desalination has come a long, long way since the 1960s, with the cost now about 10% of what it once was. Membranes have been the key enabler. However, they are still inherently problematic due to their random pore size and distribution. This leads to rapid fouling, which causes higher energy consumption and necessitates frequent Cleaning-in-Place which degrades the membrane integrity.

Our technologies have an impact in three key areas;
– Reducing energy consumption
– Recovering value from brines
– Localising and decarbonising

Food & Beverage

  • Getting more out of less
  • Water used as an ingredient
  • Recycling process water
  • Separating produce,
    in-process

Membranes play a key role in three areas in food and beverage industries.

As an ingredient, water has to be absolutely pure. When used as a detergent or for cooling, it’s important not to let it go to waste. And membranes play a vital role in separating foodstuffs like proteins and sugars.

Good membranes yield more product. With us, you can get more out of less.

With enhanced membrane technologies, producers have a greater reliance on the quality of the membrane purification systems in place, with a more uniform performance and a greater rejection rate of unwanted contaminants. In some cases, precious ultrapure water is necessary, which we help produce far more efficiently.

This same ultrafiltration technology can increase the amount of process water successfully recycled and safeguard heat energy for the process. One client, for example, was able to not only “filter the unfilterable”, but also reuse the high temperature in the recycled discharge water rather than having to heat up cooler freshwater.

Maximising the yield of food and beverage production is an essential objective. With more effective membranes in place, the separation process can be far more effective, increasing the amount of sellable product significantly.

The greatest challenge is the high tendency to fouling of the membranes. Our technologies help overcome what can otherwise be a troublesome and expensive problem. Through them, ingredient water is purified more effectively, more water is recycled and the yield of the produce is increased.

Water & Wastewater

  • Getting more out of less
  • Primary Industry Waters
  • Process water

Your industrial production is almost certainly reliant upon your supply of water and a compliant discharge of any wastestreams. Perhaps there are also valuable resources to be recovered: heat, metals, organic materials.

The challenge is to provide water to your operations economically while ensuring a continuous supply. Climate volatility is making this harder and the cost of water and wastewater services is certainly not declining. The more you can recycle, the less dependent you are on external factors. The more you can reclaim from those waters, the better.

We offer a variety of technologies that help you recycle water, reduce waste and your carbon footprint, protect the environment and recover valuable resources.

For every barrel of oil, 10-100 barrels of water are produced. While cleaning it of fossil fuels and chemicals sufficiently to be able to discharge it, or reuse it, we can help valuable oil deposits be recovered more efficiently. The same is true for discharges from mining operations. Engineering the membrane selectivity and reducing fouling are key to what has conventionally been a costly process with a high membrane attrition rate.

We’re helping create value from “waste”. Recovering oil, minerals and the resulting purified water.

We can help you get even closer to zero liquid discharge more economically by making it easier to recycle your process waters: Saving energy, saving chemicals, saving trouble and saving wear & tear on the membrane filters. Greater selectivity in the recycling system means you don’t simply flush resources down the drain.
