Protect our waters,
forever.

Something happened to our waters.

Back in the 30’s we discovered PFAS.

Grease, water, and oil-resistant, PFAS were hailed as a modern marvel. For decades, they have been indispensable to so much of what we eat, use and wear everyday. Clothing, cookware, cosmetics, fire-extinguishers, microchips.

But for decades, those PFAS and a whole host of micropollutants, have been silently and pervasively contaminating our waters, our environment, and our bodies. 

They’ve been nicknamed forever chemicals because that’s about exactly how long they stick around in the environment.

Today, these forever chemicals are – quite literally – everywhere. They are found in the raindrops falling from the sky and the blood of polar bears in the Arctic. And almost no level of exposure is safe. As little as 0.004 ng/L., the equivalent of one tiny drop of PFAS in 5000 Olympic-sized pools, is enough to have toxic effects. Cancer, infertility, immune and endocrine disorders.

At Oxyle, our mission is clear: restore and protect our waters from micropollutants – down to the very last drop.

Our partners fight contamination by totally eliminating PFAS. Not just removing or moving them, but destroying them completely – with the most advanced and scalable technology on the market.

Because every drop matters. For the future of our waters, and for us all.

Want to join our mission?

“In my first months, I challenged many established processes and proposed new solutions. I was, and am still continuously, impressed with how innovation is embraced, rather than pushed back against.”

Dr. Tobias Keller
Chief Product Officer

“Sustainability isn’t just a word we toss around. It’s inherent in everything we do. From trying to figure out how to extend the lifetime of our catalyst to carefully engineering the materials that go in it, we always question how we can do better – how we can lessen our customer’s impact on the planet and our own.”

Sebestyén Bak
Mechanical Technician

“Everyone’s game to lend a hand, whether it’s building new equipment or just sorting out the printer. No task is too big or small, and nobody says, ‘That’s not my job.'”

Dr. Dorothee Kurz
Environmental Process Engineer

“We dedicate ourselves to delivering excellence in every project we take on for our customers – nothing less. In the Applications team, we are laser-focused on our customers – their needs, their requirements, their vision. We work hard to ensure that each solution we provide is meticulously tailored to that.”

Dr. Akram Rahimi
Head of Applications

“Oxyle isn’t afraid of failure – we try something and if it doesn’t work, we adapt and improve. We believe it’s more important to be ambitious and reach for the stars, and constantly learn and improve as we go.”

Riz Isap
Head of Business Development
