Safe, safer, safest.
Our vision led to the development of ONCE.
An environmentally-friendly, tasteless, odourless, soluble, non-volatile, ozone and chlorine-free dual-action water treatment powder.
It comprises a combination of essential macrominerals and essential trace elements that have good disinfectant, coagulation, and flocculation properties and has been formulated with the South African National Standard for Drinking Water (SANS 241) in mind. This means that any water treated with ONCE, no matter how dirty, fully complies with all Compulsory National Standards for the Quality of Potable Drinking Water.
Before ONCE is added…
I will not drink it.
After ONCE was added.
100% safe and drinkable.
What is Oxidane?
Oxidane means water, nothing more and nothing less. And that is what we are about: ensuring the world, particularly people living in developing regions, has access to clean, safe and affordable drinking water – nothing more and nothing less.
Water is an inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth’s hydrosphere and the fluids of all known living organisms. It is vital for all known forms of life, even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients. Its chemical formula is H2O, meaning that each of its molecules contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms, connected by covalent bonds.
“Water” is the name of the liquid state of H2O at standard ambient temperature and pressure. It forms precipitation in the form of rain and aerosols in the form of fog. Clouds are formed from suspended droplets of water and ice, its solid state. When finely divided, crystalline ice may precipitate in the form of snow. The gaseous state of water is steam or water vapor. Water moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation, transpiration (evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea.
Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface, mostly in seas and oceans. Small portions of water occur as groundwater (1.7%), in the glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland (1.7%), and in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of ice and liquid water suspended in air), and precipitation (0.001%).
Water plays an important role in the world economy. Approximately 70% of the freshwater used by humans goes to agriculture. Fishing in salt and fresh water bodies is a major source of food for many parts of the world. Much of the long-distance trade of commodities (such as oil, natural gas, and manufactured products) is transported by boats through seas, rivers, lakes, and canals. Large quantities of water, ice, and steam are used for cooling and heating, in industry and homes. Water is an excellent solvent for a wide variety of substances both mineral and organic; as such it is widely used in industrial processes, and in cooking and washing. Water, ice and snow are also central to many sports and other forms of entertainment, such as swimming, pleasure boating, boat racing, surfing, sport fishing, diving, ice skating and skiing.
What is ONCE?
Ozone-free and No Chlorine Environment
ONCE is 100% safe, tasteless, odourless and is a low-cost water treatment product that was developed by Oxidane in South Africa to help the world achieve the sixth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).
This Global Goal, one of seventeen key development priorities launched by the United Nations in 2015, aims to provide access to clean drinking water (and sanitation) to everyone by 2030.
Who is Oxidane and what are they all about?
Oxidane (Pty) Ltd is a registered company in Cape Town, South Africa. We have a passion and vision to make safe drinking water available to all, which we believe is a human right.
We have formulated an innovative compound in powder form, which is cost-effective, highly soluble, non-volatile, inorganic and chlorine-free.
ONCE, there was safe water.
Now, safe water has ONCE
Oxidane ONCE has been proven to sanitize contaminated water by killing bacteria, viruses and protozoa rendering the treated water safe to drink. Water treated with Oxidane ONCE has no odor or unpleasant taste, making it completely palatable.
