Expert has expertise in design, system engineering, and practical applications focusing on packed and tray towers, evaporators, heat exchangers (i.e. shell and tube, spiral and plate type, and specialized heat transfer equipment), heat pumps, pressure and vacuum filtration, dryers, centrifuges, pumps, separators, hydroclones, crystallizers, fixed- and fluidized-bed reactors, scrubbers, clarifiers, sludge thickeners, blowers and compressors, furnaces and reformers, distillation, absorption, stripping systems (including pressure-vacuum, azeotropic, and extractive distillation unit operations). His experience also includes process plant safety relief, run-away reactions, and flare systems.

Expert's process technologies and system design experience includes specialty and fine chemicals, petrochemicals, fertilizers, food and pharmaceuticals, refinery units and synthesized gas, ammonia, methanol, hydrogen, ethanol, isoproponal, butanol, MTBE, ETBE, acetone, chlorine-caustic, sodium chlorate, sodium chlorite, hypochlorite, soda ash, sodium sulfite, sodium metabisulfite, sodium thiosulfate, synthetic fuels, sugar refining, coal gasification and downstream chemicals, acetic acid, acetic anhydride (and its derivatives), sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid, cyanide-based chemicals, sour gas treatment, fermentation products such as antibiotics, proteins, amino acids and enzymes, electrochemicals, urethane chemicals, polymers (such as PVC, PP, PE, polyesters, and polyurethane and specialty polymers). His experience also includes direct chlorination and oxy-hydrochlorination and cracking (ethylene dichloride and vinyl chloride), sulfonation, and nitration of hydrocarbons. In addition, he is experienced with the preparation of catalysts for various process and recycling of spent catalyst.

Expert's background in cogeneration includes the integration of power and steam generation facility with the grassroot chlor-alkali, petrochemicals, and industrial complex.

Expert's expertise includes the selection of materials of construction (such as metallurgical and plastic materials) for inorganic, organic (hydrocarbons), oil and gas, petroleum refining, and highly corrosive services.

Expert's expertise as a Registered Environmental Engineer includes the handling and processing of hazardous waste, chemicals, solvents, and hydrocarbons. He has extensive experience in environmental control technologies and systems engineering, chemical treatment, oxidation and thermal treatment, thermal incineration, and catalytic incineration.

He is also experienced in bioremediation, vapor extraction, soil washing, solidification/stabilization of contaminants, hazardous waste media, and sludges. He has experience with environmental control and hazardous waste minimization projects related to refineries, petrochemicals, chemicals, and industrial high-tech electronics facilities to meet both EPA and state regulations.

Expert is experienced with the technology, system design, handling, and processing of extremely dangerous and lethal chemicals such as Sarin (GB), Soman, Lenisite, Tabon, Vx, mustard gas, phosgene, hydrogen cyanide, chlorine, sulfur dioxide, sulfur trioxide, and others. He has studied technologies to convert these chemicals into useful products such as herbicides, specialty chemicals, oil field gelly agents, corrosion inhibitors, fertilizers, sulfonated and chlorinated chemicals, metal cleaners, and sandstone acidizing agents.

Because of his extensive knowledge of the industry, Expert has consulted for financial institutions regarding major transactions in the petrochemical, chlor-alkali (caustic and chlorine), chemicals, and related areas.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Houston, Texas - Pasadena, Texas - Beaumont, Texas - College Station, Texas - Baytown, Texas - Bryan, Texas - Sugar Land, Texas - Port Arthur, Texas - Galveston, Texas - Missouri City, Texas
