Non-hazardous, cost-effective magnesium hydroxide alternative for odor and corrosion control

Alkagen® Solution is a unique, custom engineered product that cost-effectively control odors and corrosion in wastewater systems. This rapidly dissolving/controllable pH shift technology provides sulfide control within seconds from the application point. Alkagen Solution also reduces the impact of FOG in collection systems and treatment systems while providing a beneficial alkaline supplement for the treatment plant.
Learn how a municipality in South Florida solved severe wet-well corrosion and odor complaints with Alkagen AQ Solution from Evoqua.  



  • Controls atmospheric and dissolved sulfide - uses alkalinity supplementation and sulfide prevention to reduce odors and corrosion.
  • Fast-acting - provides sulfide control within seconds from the application point, whereas magnesium hydroxide can take up to 2 hours to dissolve.
  • Minimizes FOG -  reduces the accumulations of fats, oils, and grease in collection and treatment systems and the dissolved sulfide load on treatment plants, resulting in operational and cost savings.
  • Environmentally safe - contains no hazardous substances as defined by CERCLA and OSHA.  The components are stable, safe compounds found in nature.
