Aquaporin on using nature's genius to solve the water crisis
Water is key because we cannot live without it. We needed to nurture and water our crops and to manufacture all kinds of different things. In today's episode, we explore the future of water as it relates to agriculture and life on Earth. My guest is Peter Holme Jensen, who is the Chief Innovation Officer of Aquaporin. They have developed an innovative technology to treat and filter water on an industrial scale. The design is based on how our bodies naturally filter water through something called an aquaporin protein. In this episode, we dive into Aquaporin's approach to innovation and how they have built a business based on biomimicry or the science of applying nature's genius to solve human problems. We also get into the science behind Aquaporin’s technology, why watter matters, and the company's startup story since it was founded in 2005.
