RME Presents at London Environmental Investment Forum
May 25, 2012
RME was one of three companies selected to present at a conference sponsored by the London Environmental Investment Forum (LEIF) entitled “Water Innovation in Extractive Industries.” The conference drew over 50 attendees from institutional investment firms including Climate Change Capital and Energy Ventures, several strategic investors including Veolia Water and BP Ventures as well as industry analysts and press representatives from Global Water Intelligence and Reuters
RME CEO Bill Staby and COO Olivier Ceberio teamed to present RME’s achievements in the potable water industry and detail the company’s early efforts to build a presence in the mining and oil industries. Mr. Staby commented; “while our business development efforts remain focused on providing cost-effective and rapid access to large quantities of fresh water for water-stressed, near-shore and island communities in developing countries, we’re seeing interest from companies whose mining assets are suffering from work slow-downs and shut-downs due to inadequate water supplies.” Bill went on to say; “in many instances, these mining assets are located in the same general areas where we are already working so it do not represent a major diversion from our existing business hubs.
