Building A BETR World

After inventing micro-pore foam technology, Scott realized the potential it had to make the world a cleaner place. In 2010, Scott created a unique micro-pore material to help clean up the famous BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

BP credits Scott’s material with being the most effective technology used to clean up over 300 miles of shoreline. That material was the first version of what we now use to create our micro-pore foam products.

Smith has been to every major water contamination event since 2010 – more than 60 in the US and abroad. These real-world disasters have been his laboratory and the basis for all of his patents along with 3rd party testing and validation by certified, independent labs.
