FMC Corporation, Senior Principal Research Engineer

  • As Principal Developer of a high-pressure process to render phosphorus electric furnace solid and liquid waste non-hazardous. Development spanned lab, pilot and design of commercial plant. ($100 million).
  • Designer of a process to produce ultra-pure hydrogen peroxide (at the 1 ppb or less level). Work included lab development through design and operation of actual plant. Resulted in $2 million per year added sales of H2O2.
  • Principal Developer of a process to produce caro's acid (H2SO5) for use in detoxifying cyanide bearing waste tailings from gold mines. Resulted in $2 million per year added sales of H2O2.
  • Technical and economic analysis, including competitor evaluation, for the acquisition of Lithco Corp by FMC Corp. ($140 million).
  • Designed a hazardous material warehouse to store persulfates.
  • Mathematical analysis of simultaneous underground tailings disposal and soda ash solution mining to explain behavior of injection wells.
  • Mathematical simulations, including: (a) solar waste lake, (b) traveling grate calciner,(c) self-accelerating rate decompositions including safety implications.
  • Protein purification by microporous sheets using derivatized cellulose.
  • Doubled capacity of crystallizer and improved thermal efficiencies with thermocompressor.
  • Increased raw material efficiency of cyanurate chlorinators by 20%.
  • Evaluated theoretical process improvement in stockpile-reclaimer project ($10 million).
  • Increased through put of strontium carbonate plant.
