Professor Eoin Casey is currently based in the UCD School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering. He leads a research programme aimed at developing new and improved processes for the bioeconomy and for water/wastewater treatment. His research output spans fundamental research (funded by ERC, IRC and SFI) to applied research (funded by Enterprise Ireland & industry) through to successful commercialisation with patenting & licencing. One of his flagship achievements was the development the reaction engineering framework and scale-up strategy for the MABR, a wastewater treatment technology that uses 75% less energy than existing technology. This technology has been commercialised by OxyMem Ltd. OxyMem has won numerous national and international awards and is a Global Cleantech 100 company.
