Greg and Kevin share their take on COP26, their visit to The Water Environment Federation's national conference (WEFTEC), Andrew Yang's book tour #YangGang, and discuss topics surrounding stormwater policies. The world of water is a changing place for the better and AquiPor is excited to join the movement!
On this episode, Greg and Kevin break down why our outdated infrastructure and lack of attention towards updating it, is problematic. With projections showing how we will expand in the coming years, it is most likely that we will repeat the same actions of not properly building the infrastructure that we need for future generations.Innovation in the water sector is more critical now than ever before. Samuel Rosen has the vision to eliminate single use plastic water bottles from the planet. As a proven entrepreneur, Samuel offers us insight as to how he plans on taking down a major source of pollution while establishing drinking water accessibility through his company, Tap.

As we continue our Equity Crowd Fund at Start Engine, we've been asked a lot of great questions about the AquiPor technology and how it works. We thought we would give you a quick podcast that answers some of the most frequent questions we've received so far. Take a look, and please message us if you have any additional questions!
And once your questions have been answered, check out our equity crowd fund and see how you can be an early investor in what we believe will be industry changing technology!
At AquiPor, we believe that the bigger the challenge, the bigger the opportunity. Suffice to say, the enormous water challenges that our cities face today represent even bigger opportunities for AquiPor to make our mark. After five long years of ceaseless R&D, we’ve finally arrived at a technology that we believe can be paradigm shifting in urban stormwater management.
For those of you that have invested, you have invested in much more than just a new construction product for backyard patios. We are developing our material technology to be the future of on-site stormwater management in cities. In the future, this material could be used in engineered stormwater designs that we haven’t even thought of yet!
What makes AquiPor material different is the pore size. We use a completely novel chemical technology approach to get material that is strong and permeable, but which features sub-micron porosity. It is capable of filtering out dirt, debris, and particle pollutants that are known to compromise existing permeable pavements.
For cities and developers, this means a small footprint, low-maintenance permeable surface design capable of managing stormwater runoff naturally, right within existing corridors.
As you can probably imagine, there are a lot of urban street miles in the U.S. So to be able to supply the market, we’ve been diligently lining up our supply chain and future manufacturing plans. We are working on some exciting developments to that end, which I’ll be sure to announce when I can.
In the end, big things are possible with the right combination of vision, technology, people, and capital, and your support at the outset of this launch has been incredible. Keep sharing our story and spread the word. We’re extremely thankful for that!
We've put together a short video to explain "The AquiPor Difference" and hope you'll stay tuned to our page for further updates. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out with questions. Onward!
