SUGAR (SUCROSE) PROCESSING; SUGAR CRYSTALLIZATION; SUGAR INDUSTRY; SEPARATION PROCESS. Expert has consulted in the areas of sugar and separation processes for various companies in the U.S. and abroad. He has developed a new pseudo-moving bed process for which he was granted a patent. Expert is highly knowledgeable regarding sugar purification processes (adsorption, ion exchange, cation exchange, anion exchange, desorption) and sugar crystallization. Physical separation processes with which he is familiar include centrifuging, decantation, filtration, and size screening. In the course of his work, he has prepared numerous research reports, published over 50 chapters and articles in books and journals, and obtained over 15 patents.

During his 31 years with the Amalgamated Sugar Company, Expert served in various capacities and became intimately familiar with all aspects of research, production, and quality control activities pertaining to the sugar industry. Initially involved in active laboratory bench-work and pilot studies, his responsibilities quickly expanded to include the planning and evaluation of comprehensive, full scale projects.

RESEARCH MANAGEMENT. During his tenure as Manager Operating Research, Expert organized, built, and staffed the research department and developed it into a highly efficient and productive unit. As Director of Research and Technical Services, he had responsibility for eight separate laboratories, including four factory laboratories, one central laboratory, one research laboratory with pilot plant, and two tare laboratories.

TECHNOLOGY LICENSING. Licensing of technologies internally developed under Expert's direction to foreign companies became his primary responsibility as Vice President of Amalgamated Sugar. This activity generated substantial income to the company from plants utilizing these technologies in Japan, Germany, Taiwan, Indonesia, and the U.S. Some of his original ideas as Director of Research and Technical Services were first successfully implemented within the corporate entity to be licensed later to other companies.
