Drylet CEO Luka Erceg presented at the Rice Alliance Startup Roundup on Monday, the opening day of the 2017 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, TX.

“The invitation we received from the Rice Alliance gave Drylet the great opportunity to tell oil & gas players, chemical companies, waste management companies, and investors about our innovative and effective approach to bioaugmentation for hydrocarbon remediation as well as other applications such as municipal wastewater treatment,” said Erceg, a Rice University, University of Houston, and South Texas College of Law alumn.

Substantial interest was garnered from participants, as Erceg shared the high performance attributes delivered by the company’s current and upcoming products. The latter include phosphorus uptake, ammonia treatment, and other biological nutrient reduction.

Attended by 48 emerging companies which met one-on-one with investors, the Rice Alliance Startup Roundup was held for the third year in a row at OTC, whose 49th edition convened professionals from more than 100 countries. The Startup Roundup provided OTC attendees with the opportunity to learn more about up-and-coming innovative companies serving the energy industry, and enabling potential partnerships and investments.

The Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship (Rice Alliance) is Rice University’s initiative devoted to the support of technology commercialization, entrepreneurship education, and the launch of technology companies.
