September 19, 2011
The U.S. Department of Interior – Bureau of Reclamation, has awarded a research & development grant to RME to develop a critical subsystem that will enable wave energy converters to cost-effectively power seawater reverse osmosis desalination systems. RME COO and project Principal Investigator Olivier Ceberio said, “this grant, along with funding from private capital sources, will allow us to finish development of our wave-driven desalination system and thus start providing relief for the millions of people worldwide who lack access to adequate supplies of clean fresh water.” “We wish to thank all our federal funding partners, but especially the Department of Energy and the Department of Interior, for sharing our vision of how technology can contribute to a more healthy, peaceful and productive world.”
