Our Future World: More for Less

According to the CSIRO Our Future World report the megatrend ‘More for Less’ explores how companies, governments and communities will discover new ways of ensuring quality of life for current and future generations within the confines of the natural world’s limited resources. With global water demand forecast to increase by 55% from the year 2000 to 2050, and the concerns that climate change present, managing global water scarcity is important in safeguarding quality of life.  

At Redox, our products are making an important contribution to the efficient and responsible use and reuse of water, enabling governments, companies and individuals to optimise water resources while attending to our shared environmental responsibilities.

Our products are vital to desalination projects which replace scarce inland fresh water sources and retain environmental flows needed for the healthy functioning of our river systems. Our filtration media and chemical treatment options remove heavy metals, biological or physical contaminations from industrial waste water leaving it clean and ready for reuse or return to nature.

Tapping into aquifers through the use of bores can also provide an important source of water for many remote communities, along with Redox’s many anti-fouling acid products which can keep them functioning at peak capacity.

Our associations with industry groups and professionals places us at the forefront of new water technologies and innovations, market demands and consumer expectations, allowing us to help in the preservation of clean water ways, promoting standards for education and training, and the protection of public health.

Product Focus - SUMIPEX® Labware Grade

Distributed by Redox, SUMIPEX® Labware Grade is a specialty grade of Polymethyl Methacrylate resin (PMMA), a transparent thermoplastic commonly known as acrylic, designed specifically for laboratory ware. Its high glass transition temperature and strength means that it is a versatile material, often used as a lightweight, shatter-resistant alternative to glass.

With a growing predisposition towards high performance polymers, particularly in the medical industry and laboratory applications, PMMA is a practical alternative over conventional polymers such as polycarbonate (PC) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Innovations in PMMA have resulted in properties such as UV tolerance, resistance towards lipids and phthalates, reliability and biocompatibility.

The outstanding properties of SUMIPEX® Labware Grade include:

  • Unparalleled transparency and lustre
  • Excellent weather resistance
  • Unmatched surface hardness
  • Excellent electrical resistance
  • Superior mechanical property
  • Harmless to humans
  • Environmentally-friendly, easy to recycle

SUMIPEX® is the registered trademark of our manufacturing partner Sumitomo Chemical’s PMMA. As Asia’s largest integrated producer of Methyl Methacrylate, their plants allow vertical integration from raw material to products and customers. These state-of-the-art facilities enable Redox to deliver specific grades to customers to further advance the needs of various industry segments, and that valuable competitive edge.

Product Focus – Growbags for optimal growth conditions

Supplied by Redox, Growbags provide crops with optimal growth conditions while also saving costs and providing growers with a sustainable solution, confronting the issue of water scarcity head on.

At Redox, our growbags provide two layers; a layer of coco pith at the top where fine dust is removed followed by a layer of coco chips 5-15cm at the bottom. This double layer ensures optimal growth conditions for crops including fast initial growth after planting, a horizontal rooting through the entire layer and uniform drainage. As such these coir growbags can be optimally controlled and used in various crops such as vegetables, flowers and soft fruit like strawberries.

These growbags save money due to their compact size which enables up to 17,000 growbags to be transported at once when using a forty foot container, meaning larger shipments and fewer costs. They provide economic value as they are able to be reused for other crops after initial cultivation, can be mixed and also used for soil improvement. The optimum conditions ensure less root disease as there are no more wet roots, saving money on associated expenses and fertilisers.

Due to their unique composition they are ideal for water scarce environments, with less influences from a dry climate to have affect because of the high water holding capacity. While they have minimum equal yield compared to stonewool, they exhibit up to 20% less water consumption, providing a more sustainable solution when using our most precious resource – water!

Redox presented with Australian Trusted Trader Globe

Redox was presented with the Australian Trusted Traders (ATT) globe earlier in June, welcoming Redox into the ATT scheme.

Redox directors Malcolm Perrins and Richard Coneliano, were recently invited to the 2019 Australian Trusted Trader Symposium, where they had the opportunity to engage and network with other members of the ATT scheme.

The ATT program reduces red tape for accredited Trusted Traders at the border and expedites the flow of their cargo in and out of Australia. As a Trusted Trader, this mean more peace of mind for Redox customers when purchasing, with faster supply and customs processing of our imported commodity and specialty ingredients.

The scheme has been a success due to the continuous development and inclusion of ATT benefits. Additional benefits were announced at this year’s Symposium including the Origin Waiver benefit, a Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) with Singapore and an MRA with Taiwan.
