Athlone-based company OxyMem won the Energy Efficient Technology of the Year Award at the UK Energy Awards 2014 held earlier this week in London.
Athlone company OxyMem has been named winner of the Innovation Award for its ‘compelling breakthrough’ technology in wastewater treatment at the 11th annual Sustainable Energy Awards. The Sustainable Energy Awards, which reward excellence in energy management, is hosted by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and sponsored by Electric Ireland.
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.
