Koenders Water Solutions Inc.

Matrix Solutions Inc.

Koenders Water Solutions Inc. manufactures and sells windmills and associated equipment for the aeration of standing water. Aeration improves the quality of water by providing an oxygen rich environment and circulating the water, thus preventing weed growth and removing odours. Our traditional market was with the farmers in improving the quality of their dug-out water; more recently we provide aeration to the fish farm industry where aerated water is vital for fish health. We also sell windmills to golf courses, all of whom have “water features” and who previously spent large amounts of cash in chemically treating their ponds. Rural Communities are realizing that windmills can offer a cost effective and environmentally friendly solution to speedy remediation of their wastewater lagoons. Due to falling water levels, it is becoming more difficult to access clean water. Koenders has introduced a range of solar powered well water pumps that can pump water from up to 1000 ft deep, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional deep water extraction windmill.

These remediation systems are based on multiple complementary techniques that target different aspects of petroleum and salt impacted soil remediation. The result is enhanced systems with improved and accelerated remediation kinetics. This leads to more rapid and more complete removal of hydrocarbons and salt from soil.

Importantly, PEPS not only removes hydrocarbons from soil, but results in their metabolism to non-toxic molecules. For salt, PEPS provides plant tolerance to elevated salt levels, allowing better plant growth with commensurate sodium chloride up-take into above-ground plant tissue.
