Unipolar Water Technologies® is a privately owned Australian company that understands the scarcity and value of our most precious resource – water.
The Unipolar® electrochemical technology was conceived 20 years ago in the wake of a growing water crisis. Today, our unique process has proven to be a safer, more powerful, and more cost efficient way to treat and recycle water than hitherto conventional methods.
Our business has been built on a culture of ingenuity and focus. To always invent and reinvent what is most needed. We believe this is expressed in our passion for research and development.
Our facility in Adelaide, South Australia continues to optimise our current applications and explore new possibilities.
