Year founded: 2010
Axine Water Technologies has developed a breakthrough, low-cost, chemical-free solution for treating high concentrations of complex, toxic organics and ammonia in industrial wastewater solving a multi-billion dollar problem for large companies in a wide range of industries. Axine’s energy-efficient, scalable system treats recalcitrant and non-biodegradable organics and some inorganics (up to 10,000 mg/L COD) at a lower cost than conventional solutions while producing no waste. And due to its simple, modular design, the system seamlessly plugs into existing treatment plants, targeting specific pain points without disruption to current processes. This means for the first time, chemical manufacturing, oil and gas, and other water-intensive industries can avoid the production bottlenecks, high trucking and disposal costs, water reuse limitations, and difficulties meeting increasingly tougher regulations that have plagued them for decades.
