Irish water tech start-up OxyMem wins grand prize at international awards

OxyMem, an Irish start-up working in water cleaning and efficiency technology, has won the grand prize at Imagine H2O, a leading accelerator for water technology based in San Francisco.

The accelerator has varying topics each year with this year’s theme relating to infrastructure management and is orchestrated by a team of leaders in the water, energy, and non-profit sectors at Harvard Business School whose vision is to turn water problems into opportunities.

100 companies who work in the field of efficiencies in water supplies across 20 different countries applied to the accelerator, however, OxyMem was the only Irish company among 12 shortlisted finalists, six in each of two categories (early-stage and growth stage), with the other finalists coming from the USA, Israel and Greece.

The Irish company has achieved considerable success in its two years of operation having been formed as a spin-out company from University College Dublin (UCD) by Prof Eoin Casey and Dr Eoin Syron which allows for the treatment of water with a considerably lower amount of energy usage.
