Proud to announce Hydroxon™ process validated for Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG)

25th February 2019

Validation report confirms Australian water treatment solution's disinfection performance for drinking water
  • Infinite Water's Hydroxon™ technology exceeds global recommended guidelines for disinfection of drinking water
  • UNSW's world renowned Global Water Institute defined the testing methodology, witnessed the challenge testing and wrote the validation report
  • Independent testing carried out by SA Water's Australian Water Quality Centre laboratories
  • Single disinfection process across three major classes of pathogens (bacteria, viruses and protozoa), without producing harmful disinfection by products
  • Virus removal is almost 10,000 times greater than the recommended guideline
  • Hydroxon™ confirmed as a cost effective way to supply clean, safe drinking water

Infinite Water is proud to announce third party, independently confirmed verification of Hydroxon™ for the treatment of ground water to World Health Organisation (WHO) and Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) recommended drinking water guidelines.

The highly reputable and independent Global Water Institute (GWI) of UNSW defined the testing methodology, witnessed the challenge testing and wrote the validation report. Independent analysis was undertaken by the respected Australian Water Quality Centre (AWQC) laboratories in South Australia. AWQC operate National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accredited laboratories.  

The testing and analysis confirm the exceptional performance of Hydroxon™ for pathogen removal, achieving disinfection of bacteria, viruses and protozoa, exceeding WHO and ADWG requirements without producing harmful disinfection by-products (DBP). In the case of viruses, the removal is close to 10,000 times greater than the recommended guideline.

Matthew Ng, CEO for Infinite Water, said:

“We are very excited and think it is a wonderful validation of the purification capabilities of our technology and its ability to provide clean, safe water reliably, at low cost. It underpins our long-held belief that we do have game-changing technology for the global water industry."

The world is facing an acute global water shortage driven by climate change, increasing pollution and population growth. It is predicted that by 2025, two thirds of the world’s population are set to face water shortages. Today, 2.4 billion people globally lack access to clean, safe and hygienic water and are exposed via untreated water to water-borne pathogens potentially causing disease.  

The successful validation and testing prove Hydroxon™ can be used for a broad range of drinking water applications. Its integrated design, small footprint and significantly lower operating costs means Hydroxon™ can treat highly contaminated water to the most demanding drinking water standards efficiently, simply and affordably.

A Hydroxon™ treatment plant is a decentralised solution that is modular and scalable. The plant can be containerised or skid-mounted, making it particularly relevant for the provision of potable water in remote and regional communities, and for tertiary treatment when repurposing wastewater.

Hydroxon™ uses less energy and chemicals than conventional water treatment systems, which often rely on energy intensive Ultraviolet (“UV”) light, ozone injection and membrane filtration or the use of chlorine, which can produce harmful disinfection by-products.

Infinite Water CEO, Matthew Ng said:

"We continue to work together to explore the validation of our technology in further applications. We are looking forward to working with Australian utilities, councils and companies to deploy our technology to resolve long-running issues innovatively and improve the quality of treated water and operational efficiency.”
