Professional Svcs. Consulted with Heat Transfer International (HTI; Kentwood, MI) to bring up analytical services laboratory. HTI is focused on converting refuse into electrical and chemical energy from combustion. One of their main goals is leaving the by-products of this process to have a lower level of contaminants than the initial feedstocks. An analysis laboratory for cations in solids and untrapped gases evolved in these processes are essential in this assessment. I have met with a team from HTI to bring their analysis standard operating procedures up to compliance and diagnosed problems.
