VorTech Water Solutions solves energy intensive municipal and industrial wastewater treatment

Wastewater treatment has a massive energy footprint, consuming about 2% of the world’s electricity. This is being continuously intensified by population growth and increasingly stringent treatment regulations. A significant contributor to the energy demand is the aeration process in biological treatment which continues to employ outdated and inefficient aeration technologies.

VorTech Water Solutions, a spin-out from NUI Galway, specialises in providing energy efficient water and wastewater solutions together with high-value services such as computational fluid dynamics and process modelling to maximise treatment performance at the lowest energy input. With years of expertise in fluid dynamics, wastewater process, control, and energy, we have developed the Vortex Power Aerator, a novel cyclonic aeration approach which massively reduces the cost of aeration by up to 50%.
