Expert has done extensive work in the development of water-based, and especially, solvent-based cleaning products for the screen printing industry. The technology he has developed does not include the use of petroleum distillates or any other conventional solvents. The products are biodegradable, have a lower level of volatile organic compounds (V.O.C.), higher flash points, and are not considered hazardous material by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

More recently, he has been very closely involved in helping clients understand and comply with government regulations pertaining to chemicals and some types of hazardous waste. He maintains familiarity with DOT, EPA, and OSHA regulations on both the state and federal levels.
