I am a chemical engineer, consultant and educator, with further training in anthropology, and working with plastics most of my life -- first as a technical service engineer with Union Carbide Plastics, and since then independently (practical tech, no selling or buying). Areas of specialty include packaging, agriculture, building & construction and environmental issues. I now do these things:
INTRODUCTION TO EXTRUSION OF PLASTICS -- formerly presented in various cities (since 1980) but now converted to Virtual training seminars, available on demand anywhere in the World in digital form, in your place, at your pace, both with and without my audio description.
Author and publisher of THE PLASTICS EXTRUSION OPERATING MANUAL, now in its 24th revised edition.
Private consulting work, including help in getting started in extrusion, troubleshooting, On-Call Technical Service and legal assistance.
I am especially interested in supporting the images of plastics as nontoxic and doing far more good than harm for our health and the environment. That includes understanding the reasons for the worldwide "plastophobia," which are linked to the need to believe in the impossible (magic, hope), and the fears of corporations and government, the unnatural, and science in general.
