Lios is an Irish science-driven company with a novel material solution to the problem of noise pollution in urban environments.
Rhona Togher and Eimear O’Carroll founded Lios in 2009 with the mission to eradicate harmful noise damage. After developing a successful sound therapy for people who suffer from tinnitus, the founders took on the challenge of tackling the problem at the source—leading them to develop SoundBounce, a game-changing innovation in the acoustic materials industry.
SoundBounce is a next-generation acoustic metamaterial used in the automotive, aerospace, construction and power generation industries.
An advanced, low-frequency acoustic insulation— SoundBounce is a composite material comprising a responsive material enclosed in a cellular housing. Thinner and more effective than traditional solutions at attenuating noise, SoundBounce is a non-toxic, eco-friendly solution to noise pollution.
The INAM team met Lios at AdMaCom 2021 Spring Edition where they won the Mentor's Choice Award. Hear more from them on the 21st of September on our podcast Start Up The Science!
Lios was also highlighted recently on Enterprise Ireland as the leader in developing solutions for use in satellites for European Space Agency.
Lios is currently seeking innovation-focused chemical companies as manufacturing and investment partners. They are also looking for new team members, so get in touch with Lios if you’re excited to work on the next generation of acoustic materials and changing the face of noise pollution.
