Founder Profile

Aqua Research Founder Rodney Herrington on Destroying Waterborne Diseases

Safe water and a clean environment are two seemingly simple factors that play a huge role in an individual’s health. But in low-income countries, those necessities aren’t always as accessible as turning on a tap or stopping by the store for some cleaning spray. Even hospitals, where sanitation can make the difference between healing or further complications, may suffer from poor hygiene in some communities.

Aqua Research is determined to combat this humanitarian crisis -- with more than a grain of salt. Its affordable, innovative technologies can create a disinfectant and purify water using salt as a main ingredient. We reached out to founder and Chief Technology Officer Rodney Herrington to learn more about the company’s sales process and the organizations it collaborates with.
