Creating new materials, solving global challenges.

Calix is a multi-award-winning Australian technology company that is developing new processes and materials to solve global challenges.


The core technology is a world-first, patented "kiln" built in Bacchus Marsh, Victoria that produces "mineral honeycomb" - very highly active minerals!


Calix is using these minerals, which are safe and environmentally friendly, to improve waste water treatment and phosphate removal, help protect sewer assets from corrosion, and help improve food production from aquaculture and agriculture with reduced anti-biotics, fungicides and pesticides.


Calix's technology has also been adopted overseas, where we are working with some of the world's largest companies, governments and research institutions on CO2 capture.
