EcoMag Direct Specialty Chemicals is a division of EcoMag limited. EcoMag Limited is an unlisted Australian public company established in 2015 to produce and sell a range of specialty chemicals derived from high purity magnesium extracted from bitterns generated by sea-salt production using a magnesium precipitation process co-invented by EcoMag Chief Technology Officer, Professor Tam Tran.
EcoMag currently operates a boutique scale plant in Chatswood capable of producing up to 100 tonnes per annum of hydrated magnesium carbonate.
