CQM WATER was founded in 2020 as a joint venture of Mekorot, the Israeli national water company and CQM Ltd. (an industrial products and services company with over 4000 installations in over 30 countries). Over the past decade, Mekorot has tested, validated and installed several of CQM’s products for drinking water disinfection in various applications. The newly-founded company leans on CQM's technology and know-how, having installed dozens of OSC systems in different industrial applications all over the world. Mekorot, known for its rigorous validation process, tested the OSC systems developed by CQM Ltd., and compared it with numerous competitors including current market leaders. Several lab & pilot studies were conducted at 3rd parties' water installations abroad. Several projects were funded by the Israeli Innovation Authority. The advantages of the CQM systems, their flexibility as to feedstock and robustness, impressed Mekorot.
CQM WATER's focus areas are drinking water, reused water, commercial applications, desalination plants, and ballast water.
CQM WATER’s edge for water disinfection applications:
Our proprietary systems are self-cleaning, thus negating the need for frequent acid rinses, and can operate without soft water brines or brines at all. This feature presents opportunities in locations that are far from operational bases and/or otherwise difficult to reach.
CQM’s innovations are also particularly advantageous in areas where the security of the water is of paramount importance (i.e., strategic infrastructure, army bases, conflict zones, explosives depots, and border locations that can either be difficult to reach because of environmental hostility or dangerous to store chemicals and perform acid rinses in).
Lastly, acid rinses require the employment of specialists who are highly trained in the use and storage of hazardous materials (hydrochloric acid). Where such manpower is scarce, CQM water’s ability to operate without the need for acid rinses stands out.
Founded in 2020 as a joint spin off by CQM & Mekorot, CQM WATER is a high-growth disruptive water disinfection solutions company backed by years of technological experience and operational know-how in the water industry.
CQM WATER's core patented (chemical free, self-cleaning) technology enables on-site generation of a mix of oxidants (mainly hypochlorite) upon demand, eliminating the need for the transportation and storage of hazardous materials such as gas/liquid hypochlorite, cleaning acids and labor-intensive maintenance.
The potential markets for CQM WATER are the industrial, municipal, and agro-industrial markets. Prior to the company’s inception, during 2014 first generation systems success fully passed rigorous pilot validation studies and have already been installed in several water facilities in Israel and abroad.
The company has recently completed a pilot study of sea water desalination and is currently conducting pilot studies in the fields of waste water treatment & reuse. These studies have the potential to dramatically increase our potential business growth and expansion.
