Safe & Award-winning Solution for Odour Management in Wastewater
Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is a poisonous gas produced in sewage that has a distinctive and unpleasant rotten egg smell and is a frequent cause of odour complaints.
Its build-up is a problem endemic to all water utilities resulting in expensive infrastructure damage, problematic odour issues and potential health hazards.
Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is produced largely due to the action of sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) in anaerobic (or oxygen-depleted) conditions.
At just 0.0047 ppm, your customers will start detecting the characteristic ‘rotten egg’ smell of H2S.

Unlike many other Magnesium Hydroxide slurries, Calix’s ACTI-Mag™ is a concentrated (60%) stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide.
more solids = Lower required dose
At a 30% solids concentration, MHL can take more than twice the dose to achieve the same neutralisation capacity as same the amount of ACTI-Mag™:
Calix is the ONLY company that controls the production process from mining of raw materials, to processing, to locally produced, end-product. We have “perfected” magnesium hydroxide…
This explains why:
ACTI-Mag™ supplies more alkalinity
per dry kilo than caustic soda or lime
AND the fact that…
ACTI-Mag™ buffers to a pH of 9.0 close to
the ideal pH 8.5 – 8.6
ACTI-Mag™ is safe to handle.
