Ionex SG Limited
Ionex is a UK-based water treatment company that develops solutions for treating nitrates and hexavalent chromium. Their proprietary treatment process for capturing contaminants reduces waste-disposal volumes and operational costs compared to traditional systems. Ionex, at no cost to WaterStart or its partners, installed their nitrate treatment technology at a potentially problematic well site operated by the Las Vegas Valley Water District/Southern Nevada Water Authority to verify removal rates and overall efficiency of the Ionex system. In return for the pilot opportunity, Ionex has begun establishing a Nevada-based office to further develop the control and communications software associated with their technology. The projected return-on-investment for Nevada is $500,000 per year for 3 years (equating to 5 jobs).
