On March 7th, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales visited Imperial College’s White City Incubator as part of his interest in environmental sustainability and sustainable innovation. He visited CustoMem to better understand our innovative water treatment methods , where we presented the CustoMem Granular Media (CGM), produced through a biologically sustainable method “that does not rely on or produce hazardous chemicals” (Evanson, 2018). The Prince of Wales affirmed CustoMem’s environmental sustainability outlook, and complimented us on our innovative solution to a long-standing industrial problem.

As our readers know, meeting a member of the Royal Family is a rare honour for any member of the public. Meeting a Prince, who has read up on your company and prepared relevant questions, is exceptionally rare. As Henrik found to his amazement, it was on such conditions that we met His Royal Highness Prince Charles. Says Henrik, “we were particularly enthused to learn about his long-standing interest in water micropollutants, particularly from the agricultural sector and enabling the circular economy here.”
We thank His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales for his visit to CustoMem, and hope that we will have the opportunity to emerge at the forefront of the water processing industry as an environmentally-friendly alternative to existing solutions.
