Crossmolina man, Dr Eoin Syron was this week shortlisted for the Irish Times Inter Trade Ireland Innovation Awards. Syron and his colleagues in OxyMem, who are based in Athlone, picked up the nomination. OxyMem is a breakthrough technology for wastewater aeration. Up to now the aeration process has relied on forced, or bubble aeration to deliver oxygen to the bacteria that break down the wastewater. OxyMem doesn’t rely on a bubble to deliver oxygen; instead use a gas permeable membrane to deliver oxygen directly to the micro-organisms. This allows OxyMem to deliver oxygen far more efficiently than conventional technologies. OxyMem is typically four times more energy efficient than best in class solution available today.
