Aaron Rosenblatt, Principal

Aaron Rosenblatt is an Advisor to NSF International on matters involving premise plumbing and public health. His work for NSF International includes the development of the education and training programs HACCP for Building Water Systems.  He is a member of ASHRAE Standard Project Committee 188, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems, a member of NSF International Standard Project Committee 444, Prevention of Disease and Injury Associated with Premise Plumbing, a member of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Standards Committee on Disinfection of Facilities and a member of NSF International Biofilm Protocol Committee.  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).
