A startup in West Bengal has come out with a device that produces oxygen from water simply by urgent of a swap, the founders of the know-how claimed. ‘OM Redox’, the device developed by Solaire Initiatives Pvt Ltd, which is incubated in the Webel-BCC&I Tech Incubation Centre right here, supplies pure oxygen from water, they mentioned.

The machine is nothing however a “deep science innovation that generates oxygen which is 3.5 times purer than that one normally gets from a concentrator”, the startup enterprise’s cofounders Dr Soumyajit Roy and his spouse Dr Pei Liang claimed on Thursday.

The device was chosen by the Department of Biotechnology for showcasing and launch on its tenth basis day and on the 1st Bio-Tech Expo 2022.

“Pressure swing adsorption method for production of oxygen works with the liquefaction of air, while concentrator operates through concentration of air by a compressor and then passing it through a catalyst. In these two processes, oxygen is generated from the air. Ours is an alternative technology,” Roy, the professor of Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Kolkata.

He mentioned their innovation is named pneumatically coupled water oxidation by electrocatalytic response (Power) in which the life-saving fuel is produced from water.

The machine was among the many merchandise that had been featured in a ebook launched by Union Science and Technology Minister Dr Jitendra Singh commemorating 75 years of Independence.

“This technology is patented, and approved by World Health Organization and European Conformity,” he claimed, including that the scientist couple is in dialogue with numerous organisations for licensing the device and manufacturing and advertising and marketing of it.

“The product is a sleek white pinewood box, weighing 8 kg, which provides oxygen just on pressing a switch and runs with electricity and also with a battery back-up of 3.5 hours,” mentioned Pei Liang, a bachelor of drugs from a Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China.

The device might be made helpful and scaled up, she mentioned at a programme organised collectively by West Bengal Electronics Industry Development Corporation Limited (Webel) and the Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

“We are actively considering the proposal for manufacturing and marketing of the device that produces oxygen. We are positive about the technology and impressed with its simplicity of it. A girl or boy can operate the device. Given the progress that the startup has made, commercialisation of the device is expected in the next three months,” West Bengal Electronics Industry Development Corporation Limited (Webel) Managing Director Sunrita Hazra mentioned.

The incubation centre, a joint initiative of Webel and Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry, incubated round 54 corporations in the previous couple of years, together with round 18 entities that are going by the method at current. Kalyan Kar the mentor of the unit mentioned.

Of the businesses which accomplished the incubation course of, 10-12 reached the industrial state, he mentioned, including that a number of corporations have approached the centre from tier II and III cities of the state and the participation of ladies entrepreneurs can also be important.
