Scott C. Smith, Founder & Inventor of OPFLEX Technology, is a Harvard Business School graduate living wherever there is oil and toxic chemicals to filter from water and has been involved in over 20 patents. His creative and environmentally responsible vision for his company is setting new standards for Low Carbon Impact (LCI®) solutions not only to filter oil and other related contamination from the Worlds’ waterways, as endorsed by BP in the Gulf of Mexico in a 2010 USA Today Article, but also setting unprecedented standards to fingerprint and detect oil and related toxic chemicals in the water column.  Mr. Smith has invested his life and over $25 million in developing and commercializing the Open-Celled OPFLEX® Technology,  which is based on biomimicry of the human lungs with the Open-Cells of OPFLEX behaving as the Alveoli of the human lungs, but only breathing contamination and exhaling clear water 1 drop at a time.  Mr. Smith has firsthand experience on the ground in many disasters which include the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Dalian China oil spill, ExxonMobil Yellowstone River oil spill, Costa Concordia disaster in Italy, ExxonMobil Mayflower, AR diluted bitumen "Tar Sands" oil spill, Gowanus Canal ongoing oil spill in Brooklyn, NY, Lac-Megantic, Quebec Bakken oil train disaster, and recently the Aliceville, AL Bakken oil train disaster.
