Oxyhalide Description

Oxyhalides, inorganic chemicals made up of combinations of halogens and oxygen, are identified as present or emerging contaminants by the Environmental Protection Agency. Oxyhalides arise from a number of sources, and their removal from drinking water is desirable for a variety of health, safety, and operational reasons in many water related market segments. MIOX’s novel technology, under development through funding provided by the Small Business Innovation Program of the National Science Foundation, will address oxyhalide removal from water using two innovative solutions:

  • Producing electrolytic cells with lowest oxyhalide formation – for drinking water as EPA moves towards perchlorate and possible chlorate regulation.
  • Selective Oxyhalide Removal Technology to eliminate any oxyhalide from water.

Core Technology Improvements and OSG Leader

MIOX has discovered several methods to minimize perchlorate, chlorate, and bromate production in its OSG cells.  Implementation of these methods into electrolytic cell design will continue MIOX’s culture of innovation and will allow MIOX to bring a unique and patented technology offering to the water treatment market.

Selective oxyhalide removal process.

Novel, patented electrochemical technology capable of selective removal of oxyhalides from water.  This technology can be deployed in applications ranging from groundwater remediation to under-the-sink water treatment.

I personally have felt incredibly blessed to be riding the wave with a bunch of really smart folks. If I had any specific task, like designing a rocket ship that could take out an asteroid, I’d start with the group of folks around me here at MIOX. They don’t lack any capability. It’s true.
