The sources of climate change have solutions, and their impacts can be mitigated. My focus is to clearly identify these sources and to select the most effective solutions and technologies, considering cost and secondary impacts.
For over 20 years, Clint Burklin has applied his chemical engineering expertise to develop methodologies for estimating greenhouse gas emissions from chemical and biological processes, including petroleum refineries, oil and gas production, cement manufacturing, landfills, and wastewater treatment processes. As an ERG vice president, he uses the knowledge gained from these studies to identify process modifications and technologies that economically reduce GHG emissions from the same sources.
Based on this work, Clint has authored articles on how methane can be economically recovered from coal mines and landfills for use in generating electricity and replacing natural gas. He has trained auditors in how to audit GHG emission inventories of petroleum refineries and petroleum and natural gas production systems.
A registered professional engineer, Clint holds a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Texas.
