While a student at Yale University, Rob McGinnis invented the novel ammonia carbon dioxide forward osmosis desalination.In the course of groundbreaking research on Forward Osmosis, Rob received funding and support from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, the Yale College Dean's Fellowship for Undergraduate Research, and grants through Yale University and Osmotic Technologies from a joint consortium of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, TARDEC, and the Office of Naval Research.
Rob is the author of several patents on forward osmosis desalination, water treatment, and ancillary processes and equipment, as well as a contributing author on several articles on forward osmosis water treatment technologies, published or currently under review in the Journal of Desalination, the Journal of Membrane Science, and the journal of Environmental Engineering Science and Technology.These contributions add to a growing body of intellectual property and expertise at Osmotic Technologies.
Prior to founding Osmotic Technologies, he was member the US Navy's special operations group, Explosive Ordnance Disposal.In this service, he first formed his bond with the ocean as a diver, sailor, and marine mammal handler.As an EOD technician, he was trained in the disarming of explosive ordnance, both on land and under water, and carried out this mission during the first Gulf War, in the minefields off the Kuwaiti coast.
