Evove: Tackling the water shortage

Founded by Chris Wyres and Craig Clement, Evove focuses on graphene innovation and application. Their proprietary technology is designed to address the global issue of water scarcity.

The company’s graphene-based coatings technology provides highly efficient and cost-effective solutions to a broad range of filtration applications.

The UK company’s membrane technology has had a significant impact on several industries, including lithium, desalination, food & beverage, green hydrogen, semiconductor manufacturing, and water reuse. 

Evove says it has already deployed its solutions across a broad range of applications, driving down energy consumption, saving water, and helping build supply-chain resilience.

The Investors

“To fully transition to a net zero economy, we need to increase lithium supply and enable green hydrogen production,” says Helen Lin, Partner at At One Ventures. 

“We believe in Evove’s ability to transform these sectors due to the strength of not just its technology but the team. They have a strong track record in delivering growth and investor returns, as well as a passion for creating scalable industrial solutions.”

Johann Oberhofer, Managing Partner at AM Ventures, says, “We are convinced that Evove is a prime example of how additive manufacturing can transform our world and significantly reduce CO2 emissions in many areas. We back trailblazing entrepreneurs in 3D printing and Evove are at the forefront of precision-engineered filtration membranes that will significantly disrupt the status quo in their markets.”
