EXPERIENCE IN ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY RELATED ISSUES
Green Buildings, Industrial Facility Siting, Clean Manufacturing and Multimedia Impacts
Over 25 years of experience with environmental sustainability including the development of tools for builders, developers and investors in evaluating, auditing and implementing better, cost-effective approaches to sustain the environment. Experience in risk assessment/risk management, pollution prevention/waste minimization, and associated regulations.
Successfully planned and implemented prototype environmental impacts and sustainable methodologies to determine if and how to site environmental technologies in commercial and residential settings for urban and rural settings. Approaches included: comprehensive multi-media, multi-pollutant methods to assess ambient air and water quality and land impacts using modeling approaches with field-validation; buy-in from city, state and federal agencies; conferring with citizens/community groups to assess advantages and disadvantages of the technology; public relations; and defining appropriate technologies.
Developed novel, innovative risk assessment/risk management tools for solving national and local major environmental issues including methods for landfill, incineration and ocean disposal of chemicals and microbial hazards; land application of biosolids; and site-specific assessments of urban and rural solid waste disposal plans.
Involved at a local level in environmental sustainability projects by serving on several high-level State Panels in Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland and Ohio; on community Councils such as Vice-Chair of the City of Cincinnati’s Environmental Advisory Council and assisted in the development of a solid waste recycling plan for a suburban Solid Waste Commission.
Developed agreements with several trade, non-profit, and industrial organizations such as the American Chemical Council, James Graham Brown Foundation, and Fortune 500 companies including General Electric, International Paper, Dupont, Ciba-Geigy, Genzyme, Procter and Gamble, and Eastman Chemical.
