Aaron Rosenblatt

Aaron Rosenblatt advises clients on matters involving premise plumbing and public health.  He is a member of ASHRAE Standard Project Committee 188, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems and a member of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Standards Committee on Disinfection of Facilities.  Prior to co-founding Gordon & Rosenblatt, he started a series of companies that, over the course of more than 35 years, developed, produced, sold and serviced proprietary products used for sterilization and disinfection. He is the inventor or co-inventor of more than twenty-five US patents, patents pending and corresponding foreign patents, most pertaining to oxy-halogen compositions, processes and applications.
          He has served on the Board of the International Ozone Association-Pan American Group (IOA-PAG). He also has served as a member of the  AWWA Disinfection and Disinfectants Committees and the Microbial and Disinfection By-Product (M/DBP) Technical Advisory Workgroup during regulatory negotiations for USEPA M/DBP Rule II. He is a past Trustee of the Chemists’ Club of New York and past Chairman of the Chemists’ Club Library.  He is a graduate of The Johns Hopkins University (BA).
