Our co-founder Scott Smith, a Harvard Business School graduate and resident of Cape Cod, invented the Open-Cell Foam technology back in 2000 for use by the US Military to help protect soldiers from chemical warfare agents, with a lotion infused open-cell foam sponge that neutralizes the chemical warfare agent and toxins on the skin.
In 2010 the technology was approved, used, and endorsed by BP America in the cleanup and removal of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It has since been used to remove oil and other contaminants from water in over 60 natural disasters globally.
This Open-Cell Foam technology was validated by CDC ELITE labs in 2018, for water sampling for pathogens and since then has been specified for use and deployed by Municipalities in the State of Florida to help mitigate the effects of harmful algal blooms.
Today Scott dedicates much of his time and energy to utilizing these very same technologies to help good people like you across the world to keep safe and healthy with US BioSolutions products.
