EcoMag working with Future Food Systems @ UNSW to tap into Organic High Purity Magnesium Compounds

Since 2016, specialty chemical producer EcoMag Limited has been extracting magnesium salts from the waste streams of Pilbara sea-salt mining operations and turning it into high-purity magnesium compounds for a multitude of uses, including foods and supplements.

Now, the company, which joined the CRC in December 2020, is drawing on the expertise of leading chemical engineers at UNSW Sydney to help it streamline its operations, scale up to commercial-level production, and – if all goes well – capture lucrative opportunities in the high-value ‘base ingredients’ space.
