Seair Inc. (TSX VENTURE: SDS) develops proprietary technology and equipment that diffuses gases, such as oxygen, ozone and carbon dioxide, into liquids.

The process facilitates gas-based treatment of complex and challenging industrial wastewater and allows Seair to provide full water reuse and closed loop systems.
Seair applications include oil sands SAGD water solutions, frac and produced water treatment, industrial ponds treatment, mine dewatering/treatment, end-to-end sewage treatment for permanent residential communities and remote work camps, golf course irrigation and pond treatment.
