His primary expertise is in process simulation and modeling of refinery process units, with positions at Unocal, Phillips 66, Fluor and Worley Parsons.
The nano-sized hydrogenation catalysts and an original process scheme allow the complete feedstock conversion to valuable distillates, avoiding the production of residual byproducts, such as petcoke or heavy fuel oil.
He then worked for Worley Parsons as a supervising process engineer specializing in gas treating and petroleum refining.
The pain we experience in our lives has a most constructive function: without it, we would become indifferent to all that is not as it should be in ourselves and our world.
Process schematics, operating conditions, yields, catalyst and chemicals, and economics are presented.
Visbreaking This technology is very old, and has become useful only in areas where heavy fuel oils are used for power generation and fuel for ships.
