Axine Water Technologies announced that it received a financial contribution of up to $240,000 from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP).

The Vancouver-based company has developed a low-cost solution for treating toxic organic pollutants in wastewater. The funds will be directed towards development and commercialization of Axine’s technology and solutions including durability testing and lab-scale process optimization.

Axine’s electrolytic oxidation technology is a one-step proprietary designed to treat high concentrations of toxic and biodegradable organics, as well as ammonia and pathogens, without chemicals and without producing sludge.

The company’s long-term vision is to incorporate the technology into the design of new wastewater plants to displace conventional biological and chemical oxidation, and other traditional wastewater equipment with a single process step.
