Gossman Consulting, Inc. provides hazardous waste facility design, operations and management consulting. Our experienced team of professionals have designed, built, operated and managed hazardous waste facilities across the United States. GCI's experience executing all these functions in the heavily regulated and highly competitive hazardous waste management business provides our team with a down-to-earth approach to facility design and operation rarely seen in consultants. GCI has also provided process design and instruction in operation of kiln fuel and/or solvent recycling facilities in Chile, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand and Northern Ireland. GCI's expertise is not limited to hazardous waste. We are also experienced in chemical plant design and operation as well as cement plant design and operation as it is impacted by the use of substitute raw materials or fuels.
Assisted in development of a comprehensive waste oil/solvent waste fuel program for Chile.
Evaluated three cement plants in Spain for potential use of hazardous waste fuel.
Evaluated two cement plants in Chile for potential use of hazardous waste fuel.
Evaluated a number of cement kilns in the United Kingdom for hazardous waste fuel potential and made recommendations to help set project priorities.
Assisted in the development of a "green grass" waste fuel burning facility in the United Kingdom with special emphasis on appropriate quality control measures, process monitoring permitting and stack testing.
Evaluated and made recommendations regarding a potential hazardous waste fuel project for a cement plant in Indonesia.
Evaluated cement plants in Thailand for potential hazardous waste fuel projects.
Prepared and made presentations to representatives from the oil refining industry regarding opportunities for reusing hazardous waste in cement kilns.
Co-directed a series of courses on Solvent Recycling and Reuse taught in the United States and Europe.
Performed technical and market evaluations to determine the suitability and made recommendations regarding the resource recovery opportunities available to various cement plants throughout the United States as well as Great Britain, Venezuela, and South East Asia.
Performed a comprehensive evaluation of the potential for utilizing spent aluminum potliner as a fuel in cement kilns. Evaluation included facility design criteria and concepts based on the study's technical findings.
Evaluated various resource recovery opportunities for client companies relative to technical feasibility, worker health and safety impact, environmental impact, and regulatory requirements.
Performed a study of various alternatives for the introduction of solid hazardous wastes into cement kilns including the potential for pyrolysis or thermal separation prior to cement kiln introduction.
Guided the engineering design of a bulk liquid HWF facility for a client cement company including tank farm, truck and rail transfer, and laboratory.
Developed an additional HWF facility for Safety-Kleen at a cement plant in South Carolina. This facility has the largest storage facility capacity of any in the country.
Developed and managed a "green grass" HWF facility at the largest cement kiln in the world. This process included permitting, community relations, facility design, construction, personnel hiring, training and management, contract negotiations with the cement manufacturer and training of marketing and sales personnel. The facility was on line burning HWF within five months after a decision was made by both companies to pursue the project. This HWF facility permitted McKesson Envirosystems revenue and profitability growth to record levels and was one of the key reasons for Safety-Kleen's acquisition of McKesson Envirosystems.
Developed the first comprehensive HWF specification which met the needs of product (cement) quality, environmental protection and personal health & safety in 1980.
Developed the first comprehensive and field tested system for determining the chlorine specification for HWF used in cement kilns. This system remains proprietary to David Gossman. The system takes into account a wide variety of parameters including raw material and current fuel chemistry as well as kiln system design.
Assisted in the development of a dynamic computer model for predicting emissions and recirculating loads on volatile constituents such as Hg and alkali chlorides in cement kilns.
