What pollutants can MYCELX remove?

MyCelx will remove the full range of organics from BTEX, PCB’s to oils, greases and heavy metals (as suspended organo-metals) commonly from internal combustion engine wear.


What cost savings are associated with the use of MYCELX?

MyCelx will provide savings in all keys areas of water treatment; low capital cost, smallest footprint of any treatment, simplest system requiring no specialised tools, chemical dosing or specialist training, thus proving to be the total lowest operating cost including all maintenance requirements.


How can I tell when to change a filter (when is it used up)?

MyCelx filters discolour as they capture hydrocarbons,so it is easy to see when to change a filter. Oil content monitors may also be used to detect any water that contains above acceptable limits.


How does MYCELX work?

The MyCelx compound upon contact with hydrocarbons in the waste stream imparts the unique properties of the MyCelx molecule to the oil molecule making the oil molecule hydrophobic (so it wants to leave the water) and oleophilic (wanting to bond and bind with other oil molecules) thus a thickening layer of oil is captured on and through the depth of the filter and increasing the affinity of the oil for the MyCelx infused filter.


How much water can be treated with a MYCELX filter?

MyCelx filters can treat an indefinite volume of water and will continue to treat water until the filter saturates with hydrocarbon. This point can be calculated or evaluated by experienced staff.


Is MYCELX toxic?

MyCelx is non-toxic and non-leaching and is approved by US EPA.


How are used materials disposed?

Used filters may be incinerated (low ash content and high thermal energy value) or sent to landfill as subject to accordance with local authority guidelines.


Does MYCELX have a shelf life or will it wear over time?

MyCelx has an indefinite shelf life and is only consumed upon contact with hydrocarbons.
