Early 2011
Nclear founder Steve Odom first became aware of the global eutrophication crisis in early 2011 while meeting with Florida citrus farmers and set out to find a solution. After countless hours of research and experimentation, Steve theorized that a synthetic mineral engineered from natural substances would adsorb and sequester phosphorus
2011
In late 2011, Steve and his partner Denny Ivey, an environmental chemist, set about the arduous trial and error process to develop such a synthetic mineral in a lab environment using defined.
2012
By 2012, this research effort resulted in an early version of TPX™, which has since been refined to the current product. TPX™ was proven in lab testing to be superior to other media for removal of phosphates, and met all of the initial design criteria.
2013
In 2013, Patent applications were filed in the United States and in specific international targeted countries.
2014
In 2014 seed capital provided by a small group of investors allowed Nclear to develop the means to manufacture TPX™ in small batch production.
2015
In 2015, institutional capital was infused by Allegro Investments of Menlo Park, California, allowing the company to begin to commercialize the technology.
2016
In 2016, TPX™ was used commercially for the first time, to immediately solve a crisis at the Villa Rica GA wastewater plant.
2017
In 2017, Nclear successfully demonstrated the application of TPX™ at the former Piney Point phosphate plant in Palmetto FL, in a project with Florida DEP.
2018
In 2018, Nclear developed its ElectrX™ technology for ammonia removal applications.
2019
In 2019, Nclear invested in TPX™ production capacity and successfully produced large scale production in a continuous flow system.
