Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has wide ranging experience in the efficient application of Chemical Engineering principals such as Unit operations, Unit Processes and materials of construction towards economic & safe conversion of raw materials into useful products, and sound environmental stewardship. He has applied this experience by implementing in-plant retrofit of Relief-Vents containment system & state-mandated mitigation system for highly toxic Phosgene handling facility in a highly populated area. He has applied his expertise in the alternative technologies selection for process economics by his recent evaluation for drying of an organic superabsorbant product. The technology developed by the product developer was the use of methanol solvent in copious amounts resulting in expensive distillation for solvent recovery. The expert proposed simple and economic freeze drying technology. Expert is committed to the application of Chemical Engineering principles for promoting environmental conservation; one project executed by the expert was the substitution of waste organics for natural gas or fuel oil for the incineration of toxic vents, benefiting the environment by way of harmless waste remediation and less energy use causing greenhouse gases.

His expertise in the process design area is multi-disciplined. He has been the project leader for a number of successful (on-budget, on-schedule) projects complete with raw materials/products storage, utilities, process units and waste treatment. He has prepared several process design packages including detailed process flow diagrams, piping & instrument flow diagrams, equipment design/specifications & procurement; and handled variety of processes ranging from fine chemicals/pharmaceuticals to highly toxic materials namely phosgene and pyrophoric organomettalics. His varied equipment & vendor experience includes reactors, pumps, distillation columns, incinerators, thermal fluid heaters, storage tanks & filters.

He has experience in another important aspect of process design, i.e. materials of construction, that includes various grades of stainless steel, tantalum lined columns, fired heaters, plastic lined and FRP equipment and piping.

In the area of waste treatment, expert has applied non-conventional process design solutions; one successful application was the treatment of equipment washing wastewater generated from a multi-colored ink processing operation. The treated waste discharge criteria were a very stringent requirement of a biological leaching bed on the bank of a river in Connecticut. The conventional design of primary treatment followed by biological and adsorption were not applicable to meet the near zero heavy metals concentration suitable for discharge to a public water body. The expert designed an evaporator with a packed column and condenser; the resulting water quality was successfully implemented for discharge to public water body.
