“I am profoundly honored and humbled to be part of BlueInGreen,” Goodson said. “The company has a compelling mission, a world-class technology and incredibly creative minds at work at every level of the company. I’m happy to be here at BIG, but more importantly, I’m happy to be part of its story. We are scientists, and it’s our application of science that not only makes us different, but makes us better.”
Co-founded by two University of Arkansas professors in 2004, BIG designs and builds the most efficient water treatment solutions in order to lower the total cost of treatment while improving water quality.
