MAC TECHNOLOGY

OUTSTANDING INNOVATION FOR
REMOVAL OF INORGANIC POLLUTANTS

Toxsorb’s MAC (Modified Activated Carbon) technology enables exceptionally selective removal of a wide variety of inorganic pollutants from water and wastewater, achieving non-detect levels, for safe and clean water, enhancing public health and sustainability.

RECOVER RESOURCES, RENEW VALUE

Traditionally, selective absorbance has been considered a double-edged sword. Although it enables efficient removal of target pollutants from water containing high concentrations of competing ions, selectivity also makes the regeneration process much more difficult, and often economically unfeasible.

MAC technology overcomes that inherent conflict, introducing selective adsorption that is extremely cost-effective and sustainable. Its unique way of enabling highly selective removal of pollutants reduces the need to replace filters and maintains the media’s original adsorption capability for organic pollutants. Along with this, MAC dramatically reduces the regenerated brine required to be evacuated, leading to significant cost-savings.

A CATALYST FOR HUGE SAVINGS

MAC is an evolution of pre-existing adsorption technologies, achieved by modification of the carbon surface properties, which adds new functionalities for superior performance.

The MAC platforms can be regenerated using a simple chemical process that extracts the pollutant from the MAC. This enables the media to be continuously reused, eliminating replacement costs. In addition to selectivity, MAC acts as a catalyst for the destruction of specific pollutants, such as hexavalent chromium, perchlorate and cyanide-complexed solutions. This catalytic breakdown significantly reduces the residual volume for disposal, since 100% of the post-regeneration brine can be safely discharged as a non-toxic solution, dramatically reducing haulage costs.

EXCEPTIONAL TECHNOLOGY
MEETS MULTIPLE CHALLENGES

MAC simultaneously treats inorganic and organic pollutants. With its unprecedented ability to capture target pollutants while ignoring non-essential molecules, MAC outperforms traditional ion exchange technologies by up to ten-fold (see graph). Additionally, by creating a strong affinity to the media, it ensures captured pollutants are not released back into the water.

MAC is an excellent technology for transforming groundwater into safe drinking water, successfully taking on the challenge of any concentration. It holds approvals, including NSF 61, as well as recognition from the Israeli and American Health Authorities for removal of chromium cyanide and perchlorate from drinking water.
MAC is also extremely effective in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment.

This game-changing technology frees users from the need to comply with complex regulations as it utilizes Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) wastewater treatment with no discharge into the sewage system.

It ensures the high water quality critical to highly sensitive industrial processes, while delivering substantial water savings due to the smart reuse system.
