Despite the intense workload leading up to, and following, the IPO, we have continued to progress well across our numerous commercial and pre-commercial activities.
Our ACTI-Mag product continues to show impressive results, with new trial results from Cassowary Coast Regional Council demonstrating not only great performance in
Our PROTECTA-Mag service offering has been expanded with the addition of Calcium Aluminate Cement for structural repair or sewer assets, supplied under an arrangement with BASF.
Our push in Asia continues well – we have sent a third container to China of our AQUA-Cal+ product, and our biogas application for ACTI-Mag continues to grow well with several trials planned before end-year. We recently held a partner conference for all our Asian business partners and the outcomes will feature in our next Newsletter.
Our R&D team continues to develop the technology, with a new Australian Academy of Technological Science grant award funding collaboration with CERTH in Greece to help develop our high surface area magnesium oxide into
The Calix team look forward to the next chapter in our development as an ASX-listed
⇑ The Calix name was well-represented throughout September at events held by VicWater, WIOA Bendigo, and NZ Water. At the VicWater event, Phil Hodgson spoke about the need to innovate in a volatile world. An example of Calix’s innovation is the Charleston, a high-tech, fully self-contained, self-bunded MHL dosing station. At NZ Water’s event, Ralph Lloyd-Smith spoke about Calix’s project at Mission Beach, where Calix applied MHL dosing to control septicity,
CALIX’S SUCCESSFUL INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING UNVEILS A GREAT AND PROMISING FUTURE FOR THE COMPANY…
On 20 July 2018, Calix successfully completed its initial public offering (IPO) and its shares commenced trading on the Australian Stock Exchange. The IPO provided funding for our growth strategy – including operational improvements as well as new market and product pipeline development.
Funds raised through the IPO will be used to improve the efficiency of our existing production facilities to drive margin expansion and expand sales and marketing capabilities, to increase revenues and enter new markets – and to continue progressing the company’s development pipeline for additional applications of its technology platform - including creating better materials to build batteries.
“As a cash-flow positive business with multiple products and applications being developed across multiple industries, we look forward to using the IPO proceeds to continue and accelerate the
Mission Beach is a mixed residential and tourist area and is home to the iconic cassowary. A sewerage scheme was commissioned by Cassowary Coast Regional Council in 2006 to collect the wastewater from three constituent communities and pumped by two major stations, at Wongaling and North Mission Beach, to the Main Transfer Pump Station (MTPS). The MTPS then pumps 23km to the Tully Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP).
This sewer main suffered significant corrosion due to “rotten egg gas” (H2S) release in the drained sections. The Tully plant is designed for phosphate removal with liquid alum dosing for phosphate trimming and powered lime dosing for alkalinity and pH correction.
A trial of Calix’s ACTI-Mag Magnesium Hydroxide Liquid (MHL) dosing commenced in December 2017 with the primary objective to control septicity,
The trial eliminated
Calix understands the importance of providing a complete repair and protection package for the entire sewer network including manholes, wet wells, and sewage treatment plants’ inlet works. Calix innovates in chemicals to offer the right sewer network, depending on the condition of the asset and each site’s specific requirements.
Calix has used Calcium Aluminate Cement (CAC) to repair failed concrete sewer assets in Tamworth Regional Council and Fraser Coast Regional Council. The scope of works included re-grouting and profiling of significantly corroded manholes and pumping stations with Calcium Aluminate (CAC) from specialty chemical company BASF.
Calix’s difference comes from the top coat finish of PROTECTA-Mag that can be added onto the applied CAC layer, thus providing long-lasting corrosion protection of the assets.

ROS generation in animals and plants leads to a mechanism considered as the first defense to combat most diseases that originate from pathogenic anaerobic microorganisms. CERTH uses spin-trap Electron Paramagnetic Resonance to quantify ROS.
The results confirmed that our nano-active MgO is a source of ROS, and
Calix has been awarded a Linkage Grant through the Australian Academy of Technological Science to investigate the "ROS Bomb" mechanism, and then set up a broad Australian-European collaboration with Calix and CERTH to explore its use in combating diseases.
A patent application has been filed covering this exciting new opportunity.
