The Onsite Solution for destroying PFAS and emerging contaminants.
Axine Water Technologies has developed proprietary technology and know-how for the treatment of micropollutants and emerging contaminants. Utilizing electrochemical oxidation, we provide an on-site solution that completely mineralizes such molecules, thus removing the need to ship wastewater to offsite facilities for disposal or incineration. In doing so, we decrease greenhouse gas emissions and ensure that these contaminants are not re-introduced into the environment.
Our current customers are pharmaceutical manufacturers concerned about the health risks associated with the introduction of drugs into the environment. Axine’s technology significantly reduces such risks and contributes to the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals of our customers. Having demonstrated commercial viability in the pharmaceutical wastewater sector, Axine’s technology is now poised to tackle the significant issue of per/polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) remediation. PFAS molecules are present in many of the products that we use on a regular basis.
After decades of use, these substances have now reached dangerous concentrations in the food and water we consume. Global governments weary of associated health risks are now enacting regulation to establish new limits on manufacturers. Axine has proven our ability to treat PFAS contaminated wastewater and are now engaged in commercial-stage discussions.
Why our venture should be considered one of Canada’s 50 most investible cleantech companies:
Axine is just getting started. We are continuing to invest in innovations such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, to provide greater value for our customers through increased efficiency, decreased power consumption, longer reactor durability, and decreased physical involvement. Furthermore, we have our sights set on the PFAS treatment market which will represent the next major inflection for our company. Axine is receiving PFAS contaminated water from different sites across North America and we’re demonstrating our ability to destroy a variety of different PFAS molecules.
We have signed a purchase order for our first commercial PFAS destruction pilot and are on track to deploy the unit by the end of the year. Furthermore, Axine is talking to providers of complementary technologies about potential partnerships that will bring greater value to our customers. North America is our first market geography; however, we see Axine growing into an international organization that is treating PFAS today and the future emerging contaminants of tomorrow. We envision Axine to be the "go-to" brand for eliminating toxic organic molecules from industrial wastewater.
