Launched to invent, design and consult

HC Innovations’ passion is to invent and design new products and processes, as well as share our knowledge and experience with clients in the petrochemical and water treatment industries. Led by chemical engineer and inventor Simphiwe Khuzwayo, our experienced team of consulting and design engineers draws on the powerful science of chemistry to provide solutions, technical support, and consulting and project management services.

Established in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2014, we are a proudly African company. We are committed to growing our continent’s status as a leader in technology through innovative products and value generating systems.

While this benefits our clients in the petrochemical and water treatment industries – other industries can also use our expertise, research and development to their advantage. These include the chemical manufacturing, mining, wine, brewery and paint industries.


Not only do we seek to make a recognisable contribution to our clients, but also our chosen industries, as we aim to provide sustainable solutions that solve challenges at client, industry and societal level.



We follow a responsible approach that takes into account health, safety and the environment. As we operate in a global market, providing cost effective, user-friendly solutions is essential.


The company is managed by qualified chemical engineers and accountants. Our management team has vast experience in the petroleum and water treatment industries, as well as chemical manufacturing.

Some of our success includes:

  • designing the Complete Water Treatment Plants for Kansanshi Coper Mine (First Quantum Minerals) in Zambia
  • designing and commissioning Dissolved Air Floatation and Ion Exchange Pre-treatment Plants for Karen Beef and AEL respectively
  • commissioning the Membrane Technology Plant at the Anglo-Platinum Mine in Mokopane
