S2 Ep 9: Lacey Reddix: The Founder On a Mission to Solve The Global Clean Water Crisis With Olokun Minerals.


How do you solve a problem like clean water for all? When you can turn waste products into sustainable solutions.

Meet Lacey, CEO and Founder of Olokun Minerals, the company developing new technologies to harvest minerals from the brine waste created through desalination.

Nick and Lacey get straight into the danger of taking water for granted, how Olokun’s working with brackish water to remove and potentially valorize different metal ingredients, and why sourcing metals this way solves way more problems than it creates.

You’ll also hear Lacey’s ambition to filter multiple metals at the same time, what fundraising felt like, and other climate tech she’s excited about.
