Our Story

Who Is the AquaFlex Inventor?

Smith is the founder and CEO of AF and the inventor of the Open-Cell foam technology that has been proven in more than 60 water contamination disasters since 2010.

Mr. Smith is a named inventor on six issued patents and fourteen patent-pending applications relating to specialty polyolefin foams used for both water testing and remediation of waterways contaminated from industrial oil and chemical spills.

In 2008, Smith received the Small Business Administration Phoenix Award for Small Business Disaster Recovery, after his manufacturing business was hit by devastating flood waters – which became the impetus for his inventions using Open-Cell polyolefin foams for testing/remediating contaminated water.

Smith has been to every major oil spill site (including Bakken oil train explosions) since 2010 – more than 60 different locations in the US and abroad. The locations of these real world disasters have been Scott’s laboratory. Scott is a graduate of Baylor University and Harvard Business School.
