Expert in Cleaning Formulae & Government Regulations
Expert ID: 717760
Expert has spent the majority of his career with a specialty chemical company that formulates products primarily for metal cleaning, industrial water treatment, odor control and detergents. He is particularly familiar with both solid and liquid operations that include mixing, reactors, and material handling (pumps, pipes, valves, and conveyor belts). Expert has done a great deal of work with all types of surfactant systems, such as biodegradable anionics, cationics and non-ionics. He has used these surfactants in both water-based and solvent-based cleaning formulations.
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).
While at Fremont, Expert was responsible for the safety and handling of a variety of hazardous materials. This gave him expertise in Department of Transportation (DOT), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and OSHA regulations. 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.
Expert has done a significant amount of work in the field of gas chromatography in the past five years. He is experienced in the use of both packed and capillary columns, as well as in the determination of high and low boiling solvents.
