NClear – TPX
About the Company:
NClear provides proprietary technology solutions to address the global challenge of waterborne nutrient contamination. NClear is dedicated to making a recognizable difference in the world by using their proprietary technology to restore the imbalance of nature while bringing surface water bodies back to their natural ecosystem.
NClear, founded in 2012, is a provider of solutions to address the global problem of nutrient contamination. With research and warehousing facilities located at their Atlanta based Headquarters, all their products are proudly “Made in America”.
About the Solution:
NClear’s TPX™ nutrient removal technology has a base structure of CaxSixO2.83x (OH)0.33x and is an engineered chemical compound consisting of nanocrystals of calcium silicate hydrates (C-S-Hs) and amorphous soluble chemicals designed to create an optimal environment to promote Hydroxyapatite when applied to an aqueous solution rich in phosphates.
The chemical composition of TPX™ is non-toxic and when applied to surface waterbodies, is like the chemistry of sand found in the sediment of healthy surface waterbodies. TPX™ has been verified to meet US EPA acute/chronic toxicity and reproductivity standards (EPA-821-R-02-012), and meets US FDA Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) guidelines. TPX™ nanocrystals are engineered for the optimal shape, size, purity, and chemical ionic charges to create a strong attraction to soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP). The nanocrystals convert SRP to a solid crystal structure once bound to the nanocrystals and thereby permanently remove the SRP from aqueous solutions.

NClear has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with NClear to further refine the cost and performance information on their solution. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
