CPFD Software (Houston, TX) and Renix have entered into a software licensing agreement.
Renix is using Virtual Reactor to accelerate technology development in ion exchange-based liquid separation and purification processes that transform traditional, resource-intensive batch operations into steady-state processes, minimizing the use of consumables such as acids and bases and maximizing separation and co-product recovery with a minimal environmental footprint.
Renix’s applications are implemented to extract the most value, often in non-traditional value-added applications, securing consistent, high-quality resources in an effective and sustainable way.
“Renix utilizes a unique combination of fluid and particle flows that is challenging to model using traditional CFD tools. By leveraging the modeling capabilities of Barracuda Virtual reactor, we are able to quickly develop and optimize our systems for a host of customer applications,” says Rob Haas, Director of Engineering & Project Delivery.
Renix is an award-winning cleantech company based in London, Canada – the agricultural and industrial heartland of Southwestern Ontario. As a leader in ion exchange-based liquid separation & purification, Renix equips resource processors with the ability to transform and extract value from resources using their patented platform and proprietary application development.
Our dedicated team of engineers and scientists is inspired by engineering innovation that promotes optimal resource utilization and achieving business and sustainability goals. Renix has worked with more than 20 different applications at the lab, pilot, demo or full scale, including those in ingredient purification, water recycling, metal recovery, nutrient recycling and co-product separations.
