    David Statler joined MATRIC after receiving his PhD in Chemical Engineering from West Virginia University. For his dissertation, he investigated the recyclability of flame-retarded polycarbonate to be reused in electrical equipment housings. He evaluated numerous physical and polymer properties to obtain quantitative results. He also participated in studies to more clearly define the degradation mechanism […]

MATRIC MATTERS: Continuous Process Development

A client commissioned work with MATRIC to define reaction conditions for a desired product in a continuous process.  They had conducted an extensive batch-reaction study on this chemistry but needed to know how to operate continuously for scale-up.  [...]

MATRIC MATTERS: Solid-Liquid Separations in Biomass Conversion

A company encountered difficulties in solid-liquid separations in a biomass-based process. A MATRIC team visited the pilot plant location and investigated the process. Samples of product streams were provided for study in MATRIC’s laboratories. After a short experimental [...]
