ITT ozone expert appointed to European Board

18 June 2010

ITT Water & Wastewater’s Tony Swierk has been appointed to the European arm of the International Ozone Association’s (IOA) Board, in recognition of his 25 years industry expertise in ozone oxidation

Tony Swierk, who has worked for ITT WWW and key brand Wedeco for almost three decades, was nominated to the board by a fellow employee and EA3G board member Jean Yves Perrot of ITT WWW France and seconded by former colleague and previous IOA International President Robin Lowndes.

Following a formal application and interview, he became an official board member of the European, African, Asian and Australasian Group (EA3G) at the end of 2009 for an open ended term.

Tony Swierk, Sales Manager – Ozone UK, comments: “It’s a great honour to be nominated and accepted into such an important organization within the ozone industry. I hope to be able to contribute my industry knowledge to support the board in informing new legislation, as well as supporting research and development of new applications for ozone.”

Robin Lowndes, former International President of the IOA, added: “It’s a real privilege to have someone of Tony’s caliber join the EA3G. We rely on the commitment and enthusiasm of our board members to promote the use of ozone for new applications and it is through their industry expertise that we can develop and grow the sector to meet future needs.”

The IOA is a non-profit educational and scientific organization, dedicated to the collection and dissemination of information on, and to promote research in, any and all aspects of ozone and related oxygen species technologies.

Formed in 1973, it serves as the focal point for technology transfer and developments on ozone-related issues worldwide. It brings together scientists, engineers, systems designers, technologists, equipment manufacturers, and end users to share their experiences and research data on ozone and other related oxygen compounds.
