Innovative water purification and desalination technology

Reduced Capex| Extended Life | Smaller Footprint | Reduced Energy Use

Our Mission

Ionic Water Technologies is engaged in developing innovative water purification and desalination technologies that will enable safe drinking and agricultural water access for the developed and developing world.  Addressing natural or industrial sources of water, our technology offers lower cost, less system complexity, smaller footprint, enabling less energy use and sustainable sources.

Global water problems

Water stress and scarcity affect half of the world’s population. One-third of the world’s largest groundwater systems are already in distress.

Water demand is expected to accelerate due to population growth, economic development, and global warming. Providing clean water and food is rapidly becoming a major global challenge.

Another major factor is the result of industrial products and waste that has left exposed much of the industrialized world to dangerous toxins.  PFAS or “Forever Chemicals” are one major example.

Technology & Applications

Ionic is developing an enhanced electrocapacitive deionization (ECD) technology that resolves the historic shortcomings of ECD – the inability to desalinate seawater to drinking or agricultural water levels and the durability and useful life of the materials. 

Ionic’s PFAS technology strips concentrated PFAS from beds of carbon or resin and regenerates the beds in situ.  The resulting material is a small and lightweight block of concentrated PFAS that can either more cost-effectively be shipped and neutralized or destroyed on-site.

Company & Team

Ionic Water Technologies is a private company headquartered in Hamilton, NJ

The Ionic leadership team has deep experience.  We founded a battery technology company 10 years ago and brought the technology from lab to scaled manufacturing with sales to some of the largest global utilities.

We founded several other profitable technology and asset development companies over the last 30 years that have either been funded or acquired by major industry players.

Desalination

The multifaceted problem of global water inadequacy can be solved with cost-effective, low-power, and durable water desalination and purification technology.

Today, 1% of the world’s population relies on desalination.  The UN predicts that 14% will rely on desalination by 2025.

There are two barriers to widespread adoption:

  • Grid limitations (mitigated with lower power systems)
  • Economic barriers (can be overcome through cost reductions)

Ionic is developing an enhanced electrocapacitive deionization (ECD) technology that resolves the historic shortcomings of ECD – the inability to desalinate seawater to drinking or agricultural water levels and the durability and useful life of the materials.

 

PFAS

Poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of highly toxic fluorinated chemicals used in hundreds of everyday consumer products. These chemicals are very persistent in the environment and in the human body – meaning they don’t break down and they can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.

While some removal technologies already exist and are in commercial use, they are expensive to build, operate and maintain regularly. Ionic water Technologies (Ionic) has invented a technology to reduce the operational and capital cost and improve the disposal efficiency of remediating  PFAS compounds from water sources to return them to drinking water levels.
