Advisory Board:

Professor James Marsden, Ph.D.

Distinguished scientist and food safety and security expert Dr. James Marsden has been named as the Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board for Wataire International, a leading water safety technology company. Dr. Marsden currently serves as Regent’s Distinguished Professor and Associate Director of the Biosecurity Institute at Kansas State University (“KSU”). KSU has placed a major emphasis on food safety and security. The research and educational activities at KSU address issues that directly impact human health, agricultural security and the economy. The university is the site of the Biosecurity Research Institute and the National Agricultural Biosecurity Center.

“Wataire is privileged to have a scientist with Dr. Marsden’s expertise and experience to help advise the company on public health and safety and security issues relating to the production of safe drinking water. Our technology is uniquely suited to provide safe drinking water to consumers in North America, but also has implications for improving public health in developing countries throughout the world. Dr. Marsden’s interest in addressing problems associated with the shortage of abundant and safe drinking water make him the ideal person to oversee the company’s Scientific Advisory Board,” stated Robert Rosner, CEO of Wataire.

One of the core technologies for Wataire involves the production of safe drinking water from humidity in the air. This allows for the placement of systems in remote locations where the availability of water is limited. Dr. Marsden will advise Wataire on issues relating to the production of water for consumer products; products sized for large commercial applications; government and military systems; remote systems designed to produce drinking water and sanitation in developing countries.

Dr. Marsden stated, “The Wataire system can produce safe water that is free of harmful micro-organisms and chemical contamination. The need for safe, pure drinking water is universal. This technology could reduce illnesses and mortality associated with unsafe drinking water in developing countries and also addresses the consumer demand for safe water in the United States and other developed countries. In addition, it is well suited to meet special needs that may arise during national emergencies and in military and humanitarian operations.”
