Company Profile

Xogen Technologies Inc. is a privately-held Canadian clean-technology company that is focused on providing industry and government with innovative wastewater treatment solutions worldwide. Funded in part by Sustainable Development Technology Canada, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and Ontario Centres of Excellence, Xogen's patented technology is designed to address the acute needs in the rapidly growing multi-billion dollar wastewater industry. Xogen's process eliminates the production of biosolids, is odorless, and the Company believes its treatment of wastewater achieves, and exceeds, regulatory requirements with a speed that is unmatched by current technologies. Wastewater is treated using an electrolytic process that also produces a mixture of hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen gas. These gases are a valuable commodity, which can be used to generate energy that can be sold back to the grid or re-used to reduce operating costs. Wastewater treatment is primarily accomplished through a scalable single unit process that occupies up to 75% less space than conventional treatment systems. Xogen has been selected for the Corporate Knights Next 10, a list representing Canada’s best privately-held companies in the cleantech space.

Products/Services

  • Xogen's Wastewater Treatment Solution Xogen products are comprised of a proprietary reactor module containing electrodes and a power supply unit. One reactor module is capable of treating up to 6 L/min of wastewater volumes are achieved by adding or subtracting reactor modules. Xogen’s patented technology is an electrochemical wastewater treatment process which utilizes the properties of electrolysis to destroy organic pollutants in a unique way such that: (i) wastewater contaminants are eliminated at lower hydraulic retention times than biological or physical-chemical systems; (ii) the process does not produce residual bio-solids which require additional treatment and disposal; and (iii) the off gas produced during treatment can potentially be separated and purified to those gases that will have a value either to be: (a) distributed and sold off for use; (b) used to produce energy in a fuel cell or combustion device; (c) consumed by the process; or (iv) or sold back to the grid. Screened wastewater is pumped between a set of electrodes where highly oxidative species, including ozone, hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radicals, are generated. The species mixture can be controlled by modulating the input signal to target specific contaminants. At the same time, water molecules and other contaminants in the liquid are split into a gas mixture of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and traces of CO. Micro-bubbles of gas suspend solids by floatation which can then be coagulated and precipitated out in a final clarifier. At the same time, oxidative species oxidize organic matter which in turn reduces organics, removes toxicity and converts ammonia to nitrogen and hydrogen gas and readily destroys pathogens. In comparison to conventional biological treatment systems a much smaller volume of solids will remain after treatment, will be inorganic and should be suitable for direct disposal to a landfill without requirement for further treatment. Xogen’s approach requires a significantly smaller footprint than conventional approaches, thereby lowering capital costs and increasing the overall economics of wastewater treatment. Due to the scalability of Xogen’s solution, the units are suitable for industry and municipal applications and can be integrated into existing plants to expand capacity or replace existing facilities. A by-product of Xogen’s solution is the generation of hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen gases that can be sold as industrial gases into a distribution network to generate revenue. Xogen has an agreement with Linde Canada Inc., a leading industrial gases and engineering company with over two million customers in 70 countries to develop a go-to-market strategy that will provide Xogen’s cutomers with a monetization solution for the gases which will offset their operating costs and improve ROI. Xogen has an extensive patent portfolio with 34 patents worldwide and 20 additional patents pending globally which it believes provides strong protection for its approach to wastewater treatment.
