Development Partners

We have assembled an extensive network of development partners to help us build and commercialize Wave2OTM. We maintain relationships with leading academic institutions and research labs and have established commercial partnerships with providers of desalination systems and related components that can provide engineering expertise and equipment as well as local personnel and infrastructure in our target markets. Our network of partners also includes federal, state, and local organizations, trade associations, standards organizations and certification bodies.
