Cleantech Startup Earns Government Funding to Treat Toxic Wastewater

Award-winning clean technology company has earned government funding to treat toxic water across industries.

Vancouver’s Axine Water Technologies has received $1 million from the Government of Canada’s Western Innovation Initiative to deploy its electrochemical oxidation technology for treating toxic wastewater at customer sites in the chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, microelectronics, and other water-intensive industries, the company announced recently.

Axine Water is one of 12 companies highlighted by the  the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development in the current $14.8 million announcement of funding. The WINN program provides $100 million in repayable contributions to small and medium-sized enterprises across Western Canada.

“Canadian companies are working hard to bring their innovative products and services to market,” said Bains. “Clean tech organizations like Axine Water are promoting economic growth, creating high-quality jobs for Canadians, and furthering Canada’s innovation landscape.”

“We are very pleased to collaborate with the Government of Canada,” said Axine Water CEO Jonathan Rhone. “This will enable our customers to lower their operating costs and eliminate the practice of trucking wastewater off-site for disposal without spending their own capital.”

Axine Water develops low cost, chemical-free solutions for treating ammonia and toxic organics in industrial wastewater addressing multi-billion dollar pain points.
