Entrepreneur and inventor Jay Harman is one of the most sought after speakers on Biomimicry. Jay is one of the world’s leaders in Biomimicry research and development, at the forefront of the Biomimicry design movement as a nature-inspired designer. As founder and CEO of PAX Scientific and its subsidiaries, he has designed more efficient industrial equipment, including refrigeration, turbines, boats, fans, mixers, and pumps and is the founder of several companies to bring these products to market.
Harman says he is “on a mission to halve the world’s energy use and greenhouse gas emissions through Biomimicry and waste elimination.” He believes that it is simply false when some industrial leaders claim that we cannot afford green solutions because they will undermine the economic recovery. According to Harman, “all over the world, across dozens of industries, people are finding profitable solutions to seemingly intractable problems by partnering with nature. Following nature’s design mastery, we can achieve greater wealth and economic sustainability.”
