Biological Treatment of Odors and Volatile Organics, Wastewater Treatment, Membrane Bioreactors

ID: 729368 Ohio, USA

Request Expert

Expert has worked on biological treatment of wastewater for the past 35 years. He has conducted experimental research in the areas of membranes, membrane ultrafiltration, biological treatment of air, wastewater, soils and sediments. Expert has over 100 peer-reviewed publications and 13 patents in these areas of expertise. Expert is also a founder of a small business "C" Corporation, that has designed and maketed biological odor and volatile organic compound (VOC) treatment systems for the past 15 years. He has worked in collaboration with other companies to design biological treatment systems for municipalities and industries, including pharmaceutical, wood products, municipal, chemical, petrochemical, etc.

Expert has been a Principal Investigator of Research funded by the USEPA, published several papers and presented papers on this topic at National and International Conferences. He founded a company in 2004 to advance applications of his research for industrial wastewater treatment and another company in 2018 to install advanced septic tanks for single family houses and communities. Over 200 such advanced treatment systems are currently operating in Kentucky and Ohio. He is also a Principal Investigator of 45 research projects on Biological Treatment of Wastewater, with a total funding of $4.8 million. He is a reviewer for several funding agencies (NSF, DOE, EPA), universities, and journals.

Recently, Expert is working with the Government of India and companies in India, US and Europe to advance Ultrafine Bubble Biomedia Reactor (UFBBR) Technology which uses nanobubbles of 90% oxygen and a proprietary, high-surface area moving biomedia to reduce treatment time and hence plant size, and achieve 40% energy reduction, over 80% waste sludge production and 30% capital cost reduction compared to current technologies of Moving Bed Bioreactor (MBBR) and Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) processes.
