The idea is based on patented technology from Northwestern University, developed with support of NSF grants. The materials developed is a layered metal sulfide that can be used to sequester soft Lewis acids from aqueous solutions. The material is a drop-in solution for certain applications.
NUMiX manufactures and supplies sorbents to remove dissolved heavy metals from aqueous streams ten times more efficiently than competing technology, reducing water treatment additives and subsequent waste by up to 95% compared to current processes. This efficiency gain reduces toxic and precious heavy metals returned to the earth as hazardous waste.
For our customers, NUMiX’s materials enhance water treatment and provide value by minimizing treatment additives, simplifying operations, and reducing hazardous waste disposal costs.
