Clean TeQ Holdings, along with Monash University and Ionic Industries, received a grant of $632,285 AUD (almost $500,000 USD) from the Australian Government under the Cooperative Research Centre’s Project (CRC-P) program, to develop energy efficient wastewater treatment technology using graphene oxide technology. The new project is scheduled to commence in March 2017.
Researchers at Monash University have developed a method of producing graphene oxide which is suitable for the production of water and wastewater filtration products. Clean TeQ has already commercialized its Continuous Ionic Filtration (CIF®) technology which is used for water and wastewater filtration. The use of graphene oxide adsorbents in Clean TeQ ‘s process will allow the capture of non-ionic species and thereby extend the range of waters than can be successfully treated.
