Speaker: Franklin A. Phillips

Mr. Phillips is an Environmental, Health and Safety Coordinator for Zoltek, a carbon fiber producer with three facilities in the St. Louis area. Franklin completed Pre-Medicine studies with a degree in Physiology at SIU-Carbondale, graduate studies in Chemistry at the University of Houston, and an M.B.A. in Finance at Lindenwood University. He is a Certified Hazardous Materials Manager and formerly a Certified Environmental Trainer and Certified Indoor Air Quality Professional and is a member of the St. Louis Chapter of Hazardous Materials Managers and the Air and Waste Management Association. The consulting/training project was a two-and-a-half week endeavor sponsored through USAID by the World Environment Center in New York City. It involved mentoring a team of eight engineers from the National College of Mining and Engineering in Rabat, Morocco. Frank Stevens and Frank Phillips, both of whom have been at Continental Cement Company in Hannibal, Missouri, were the mentors. The engineers were performing energy audits for cement production as part of an Energy Demand Management (EDM) project. Key points to be discussed are the sources and costs of fuels for cement production, alternative fuels for rotary kilns, particulate emission controls, minimizing the loss of coal from wind erosion, the use of automotive and truck tires as alternative fuel in rotary kilns, and pollution prevention options.
