About Elentec

Water Treatment Since 2012

Elentec was formed in 2012 to commercialise more than 20 years of research and development by the directors of the company into electrochemical water treatment. R&D continues to be an important part of the company.

Elentec’s core technology is Electro-Coagulation (EC), now being recognised as a cost-effective alternative to traditional chemical water treatment. Elentec EC is a modular water treatment system that can cover a wide range of flow rates and can be delivered in a standard container or as a mobile unit.

Electro-Coagulation (EC)

Electro-Coagulation (EC) (patent pending) replaces traditional chemical water treatment. A key advantage of the process is the replacement of ‘wet’ coagulation chemicals (e.g. ferric chloride) with electrochemical cartridges containing safe and stable metal plates. This significantly reduces Health & Safety constraints on site – and also leads to reduced levels of sludge.

Many Years of Testing

The technology has been developed after many years of testing across a wide variety of industries with differing waste streams. Continuing R&D is now delivering an oxidation system as well as ways to enable emerging processes to recover resources and create sustainable energy.

Applications and what the technology does:

As a replacement technology for typical chemical coagulation, the same range of applications apply. Below is a list of applications where Elentec EC has been tested.

Elentec EC technology has been applied over a range of industries including: Automotive, Anaerobic Digestion, Municipal Effluent, Aquaculture, Mining, Brewing, Metal Finishing, Dairy

  • Removes heavy metals from waste streams

  • Removes phosphate/phosphorus from effluent streams

  • Removes arsenic from contaminated groundwater

  • Reduces solids in waste streams

  • Removes contaminants from shipping/marine effluent

  • Treats process water for recycling

  • Treats waste from anaerobic digestion and other agricultural processes

  • Emergency and disaster recovery units
