Expert in Pulp and Paper Processes
Expert ID: 108397 Maine, USA
PULP AND PAPER INDUSTRY PROCESS AND AIR POLLUTION CONTROL:
Expert's experience has primarily been in solving pulp and paper industry air pollution problems using all types of control technology. Expert has done a significant amount of pulping system design, trouble-shooting and operational assistance during his career. He is particularily familiar with Kraft, groundwood and TMP pulping systems. He has developed innovative Kraft black liquor storage and supply systems as well as Kraft air pollution control systems. He has done much work in the pulp bleaching field and is a member of the TAPPI Bleaching Committee. He has also developed wet scrubbing approaches as well as incineration systems. These have saved clients on both capital and operating costs.
PULP AND PAPER ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL:
In addition to his work with air pollution control, Expert has done much innovative designing in conserving and recycling process water and fiber. He has helped "close-up" many paper machine white water systems and has reduced pulp mill effluent substantially at several mills. He has taken 2 mills to "zero" discharge.
Expert has a very broad background in both pulping and papermaking, with 14 years of mill management experience. He has published papers concerning de-inking, air pollution control, process control, and coating formulation. He has provided consulting to the pulp and paper industry for over 24 years. His work has emphasized process design and modification, environmental problems, particularly reuse of process effluent, secondary fiber (waste paper) systems, and molded pulp technology.
KRAFT PULP MILL DESIGN AND OPERATION:
Expert has over 35 years experience working in operations and supplying consulting services to the Kraft pulping industry. He served as technical and environmental manager for a large kraft mill in Berlin, New Hampshire for nearly 10 years. His function included process design and control of the manufacturing components, including two black liquor recovery boilers, one being a B & W unit installed in 1966 and the other being a Expert unit installed in 1950. His responsibilities included process control of the two recovery boilers and aiding the manufacturing department with establishing operating parameters and procedures,
Expert's experience with recovery boilers has continued during his 25 years as a consultant to the industry particularly in the field of air pollution control where he has been involved with the design and installation of several recovery boiler scrubber systems. Design of recovery boiler scrubber systems requires a thorough knowledge of recovery boiler design and operation. As Vice President of Operations for Teller Environmental Systems he specialized in recovery boiler emissions control technology and helped design and install recovery boiler systems in the United States and Canada.
His experience with recovery boilers also includes design and operation of black liquor storage and supply systems to the combustion burners. He is familiar with all facits of fuel supply to RB's.
Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Portland, Maine
