PROJECTS - some examples

Fortune 500 Company

Problem: Poor economics for a medium-level product contaminant removal prevented development of potential new sources of the product.

Solution: Basic research found a potential removal mechanism. Bench-scale and pilot tests were developed to determine the economics and feasibility of the process.

Results: An economic process was developed, allowing flexibility in sourcing the product. Improvements made by Process Systems Consulting to the process resulted in a 40% reduction in operating costs due to elimination of expensive catalysts.

Fortune 500 Company

Problem: This company needed to obtain reliable and representative samples of a process by-product for the development of a re-processing plant. The by-product stream was not contained or controlled, so standard sampling methods were inappropriate.

Solution: An onsite visit to the plant was made, and an appropriate sample collection and retrieval system was designed and built.

Results: The sampling system allowed the continuous extraction and analysis of the by-product stream. Its portable design let it be used in subsequent studies at other sites. The reliable ability to obtain a representative sample continuously allowed the use of on-line analysis, reducing the stream characterization and qualification time from two months to two weeks.

Independent Small Business

Problem: Competition for alternative energy sources makes landfill gas utilization more expensive for this company.

Solution: We expanded the potential market base from energy to industrial solvents, coolants and cleaners by utilizing new technology for economic recovery of the carbon dioxide by-product.

Results: Use of smaller landfills is economical, avoiding competition with large energy-production companies.
