ALKA-Mag+
wastewater treatment savings calculator

ALKA-Mag+ is a safe and cost-effective alternative to the use of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) and lime for wastewater treatment, alkalinity and pH adjustment.

  •  Is low pH adversely affecting your treatment process ?
  • Trouble with your water and its alkalinity ?
  • Excess usage of lime and caustic soda leading to higher operations and maintenance cost ?
  • Do you have safety concerns with operators handling hazardous chemicals ?
ALKA-Mag+ to stabilise pH and boost alkalinity

ALKA-Mag+ (60% Mg(OH)2) has a higher neutralizing value per pound than any other alkaline additive.  This translates into a 40% reduction in chemical usage when compared with caustic soda, while being significantly safer for operators to handle and more nutritive for the microorganisms being maintained – making it the most cost-effective option.

* In 2022, AMALGAM-60 was renamed ALKA-Mag+, improved stability, flowability, and reactivity from IER & Calix’s synergy.

SUPPORTING WATERAID

Because we truly care about sanitation

Almost 2 billion people do not have a decent toilet or access to basic and safely managed sanitation. In many cases, faeces and urine end up untreated in the environment, contaminating it and threatening people’s health.

This is why IER supports WaterAid programs, to facilitate access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in the world’s poorest and most marginalised communities.
