Ammonia Splitter removes ammonia from municipal wastewater, landfill leachate, and other waste streams. The Ammonia Splitter technology works in extreme conditions where conventional approaches are unable to operate. It is insensitive to temperature, salinity, or varying ammonia loads and is not affected by contaminants that challenge traditional biological systems. Ammonia Splitter also turbocharges biological based wastewater treatment plants by removing ammonia from centrate, their concentrated ammonia stream, effectively increasing plant capacity.

Saltworks has operated Ammonia Splitter on municipal wastewater treatment plant centrate and landfill leachate. The technology uses Saltworks’ ElectroChem platform with a different IonFlux membrane and process. Commercial production is based on electrodialysis reversal (EDR) equipment, including the ion exchange membranes, stacks, and plants built by Saltworks.
“Sustainable Development Technology Canada is very proud to support the commercialization of Saltworks’ innovative technology,” said Leah Lawrence, SDTC president and CEO. “This project will create green jobs for the local economy, increase efficiency in the sector and provide economic and environmental benefits for all Canadians.”
Saltworks is currently looking for additional site implementation partners. For further information on Ammonia Splitter and ammonia wastewater treatment, contact Saltworks at
