This series puts the spotlight on Canadian companies that are addressing water problems with innovative cleantech solutions.

Treating industrial wastewater is one of Canada’s most pressing water challenges. Each year, industrial manufacturing operations generate billions of gallons of wastewater contaminated with toxic, non-biodegradable organic pollutants with potential risk to environmental and human health. Stepping up to the challenge is Vancouver-based Axine Water Technologies, a disruptor in the water tech space setting a new standard in industrial wastewater treatment. 

Axine’s new generation of electro-oxidation (EOx) solutions tackle a wide range of the toughest organics and provide on-site manufacturing effluent treatment and follow-on performance verification. Recognized on the 2021 Global Cleantech 100 list of companies best positioned to deliver the future, Axine recently signed another multi-year, multimillion-dollar agreement with a global pharmaceutical company to treat wastewater at an Eastern U.S. manufacturing plant. 

Get to know more about Axine and hear their President and CEO Jonathon Rhone speak at Cleantech Market in Canada and Switzerland, a webinar on May 4 that will bring together innovators, investors, researchers, and government to explore water tech innovations.

Check out the full roster of Water Tech Talks, a week of workshops, discussions and matchmaking events powered by Foresight and waterNEXT, Canada’s water technology ecosystem.
