Waste-water Treatment System Designs, developed software to inventory
Process Engineer, worked under
Jerry Roach P.E.
- Under contract to the State of Texas Air
Control Board, did analyses of point emissions from aluminum
pot-lines, kraft paper mills, fertilizer plants. Compared fence-line
calculated emissions to field data, mass balances on point sources.
- Performed annual environmental audits for
advising them of best practice opportunities to improve.
- Petrochemical storage wastewaters vary
significantly in their composition as different product tanks are
washed out. Developed biological treatment systems characterized by
long retention for slow-degradation kinetics, choice of activated
sludge or trickle filter, and bull-rushes in channel ditches for
polishing heavy metals.
- in BASIC (pre-PC days) developed
point-source emission calculation software based on EPA "TANKS" and
"AP-42", including summary tabulating emissions for all products.
Capability to quickly change identity of stored products, and
re-compute entire emissions inventory total.
Texas Air Control Board Study
- Formal report for TACB
quantifying emissions compliance at fenceline from calculating
process vents of aluminum pot-lines, wood pulp Kraft mills and
fertilizer sulfuric acid units.
