Problem Axine Water Technologies is solving
Today’s incumbent wastewater systems are complex, expensive and often ineffective at treating organic pollutants. Biological systems cannot effectively treat high concentrations of toxic, recalcitrant organics while chemical oxidation processes are prohibitively expensive.
The treatment of industrial wastewater is a $40 billion global industry that is undergoing a dramatic transition. Axine has developed an award winning technology that demonstrates the potential to establish a new cost and performance standard worldwide for treating industrial wastewater leaving no trace of pollutants.
