Startup in Bengali; Solair Initiatives Pvt Ltd developed a device to produce oxygen from water
The founders of the technology claimed that a startup in West Bengal has invented a device that produces oxygen from water. ‘OM Redox’, a device developed by Solaray Initiatives Pvt Ltd, which has been installed at the Webel-BCC&I Tech Incubation Center here, provides pure oxygen from water, he said.
The startup venture’s co-founders Dr Soumyajit Roy and his wife Dr Pei Liang claimed on Thursday that the machine is nothing but a deep science innovation that generates oxygen that is 3.5 times purer than a normal concentrator .
The device was selected by the Department of Biotechnology to showcase and launch at its 10th Foundation Day and the first Bio-Tech Expo 2022.
The pressure swing adsorption method works with the liquefaction of air to produce oxygen, while the concentrator is driven by a compressor through a concentration of air and then passing it through a catalyst. Oxygen is produced from the air in these two processes. We have an alternative technology, says Roy, professor at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Kolkata. He said his innovation is called Pneumatically Coupled Water Oxidation by Electrocatalytic Reaction (Power) in which a life-saving gas is produced from water.
This machine was one of the products that was featured in a book released to commemorate 75 years of independence by Dr Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of Science and Technology. The technology is patented and approved by the World Health Organization and European conformity, he claimed, adding that the scientists are in discussions with various organizations to license the duo device and to manufacture and market it.
“The product is a sleek white pinewood box, weighing 8kg, that delivers oxygen and runs on electricity when just a switch is pressed and also with 3.5 hours of battery back-up,” said Pei Liang, a Huazhong medical graduate. he said. University of Science and Technology in China. At an event jointly organized by West Bengal Electronics Industries Development Corporation Limited (Webel) and Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry, he said the device can be simplified and scaled up.
We are actively considering proposals for the manufacture and marketing of oxygen generating equipment. We are positive about technology and impressed by its simplicity. A girl or a boy can operate the device. West Bengal Electronics Industries Development Corporation Limited (Webel) Managing Director Sunrita Hajra said that considering the progress the startup has made, the device is expected to be commercialized in the next three months.
The Incubation Center, a joint initiative of Weibel and Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has incubated around 54 companies over the years, including around 18 entities that are currently undergoing the process. Unit’s mentor Kalyan Kar said. Of the companies that completed the incubation process, 10-12 commercial reached the state, he said, adding that many companies from Tier II and III cities of the state have approached the Center and the participation of women entrepreneurs is also important.
