The idea for Waterise® came to Davoud Tayebi, one of ourfounding fathers, as he was buying bottled water at a petrol station. Having worked with fracking in the unconventional oil and gas industry where access to water was a constant issue, he had experienced the value of water in his work. He suddenly realised that the bottle of water in his hand was both more expensive and indispensable than the petrol. Realising the extent of the water crisis facing a number of regions around the world, Davoud called some of his colleagues from the oil and gas industry to pitch his idea: to use their offshore and subsea expertise to help humanity solve one of its most pressing problems – access to fresh water.
