Lindane Removal from Water

Lindane is an agricultural insecticide which has been banned under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants since 2009. Research shows that contamination with this pesticide had cancer-causing impacts.

Lindane removal from water using specialist water treatment is crucial to mitigate its impact on aquatic ecosystems and safeguard public health.

What we achieved

We have experience in reducing lindane down to 0.99 ng/L using our Nyex water technology.

Other ways to Remove Lindane from Water

Various other options for lindane removal have been used, each with its advantages and limitations. Some common methods include oxidation, adsorption, and reverse osmosis, as detailed below:


This method can use clean technologies like electrochemical oxidation or less eco-friendly like ozone, hydrogen peroxide, or UV radiation to break down lindane into safer substances. While oxidation can be effective, it sometimes generates toxic byproducts and can require careful handling of the oxidizing agents.


Activated carbon for lindane removal involves the attachment of lindane molecules to a solid adsorbent material. It is a cost-effective technique and can remove various organic pollutants from water. However, the spent carbon requires proper disposal or regeneration to avoid secondary contamination.

Reverse Osmosis (RO)

RO is a membrane-based separation process that can effectively remove lindane. However, RO for removing lindane from water is energy-intensive and may not be suitable for large-scale applications.

Conclusion: Lindane Removal from Water

In conclusion, lindane removal from water is a crucial step towards protecting aquatic ecosystems and ensuring clean drinking water for communities. Various techniques, such as adsorption and oxidation, have proven effective in removing it. Among these, the revolutionary Nyex Rosalox™ system stands out as an efficient and environmentally-friendly solution to combat lindane contamination effectively.

By adopting technologies like the Nyex Rosalox™ system, we can make significant strides in reducing the environmental impact of lindane, whilst preserving water quality and safeguarding both human and environmental health.
