James C. Fisher

Research Engineer I

Jim Fisher

Mr. Fisher has been active with contract chemical engineering and consulting for Eltron Research and Development for the last 6 1/2 years. This work for outside companies has covered several varied processes including; a process demonstration unit for the Fischer-Tropsch production of diesel fuel and the preliminary front end engineering and design of a pilot scale coal gasification facility. Mr. Fisher has also assisted Eltron's sister company Continental Technologies in the development of bid packages and with their process drawings. In-house, Mr. Fisher has prepared preliminary economic viability estimates for several processes under research and development and contributed his experience and expertise in the design and construction of many bench and floor scale experimental research setups.

Outside of Eltron work, Mr. Fisher has been independently researching leptons and photons. Click here to read more about his Special Research.

While at Eltron prior to performing engineering duties, Mr. Fisher was involved for 3 years in the hands-on conduct of the research of basic chemical processes, primarily with the catalyst development group. This work involved the design, construction, and actual operations of bench scale catalyst screening and testing units. He also did the actual synthesis for many of catalyst being screened. Much of this work was for governmental sponsored Phase I and Phase II projects.

Before coming to Eltron Research and Development 9 1/2 years ago, Mr. Fisher worked as an independent chemical engineering consultant-contractor for 11 1/2 years. As such his work primarily involved the conceptual design engineering of the off-gas cleaning systems for hazardous waste and low level nuclear incinerators. Before this time Mr. Fisher was employed as a chemical process engineer in the oil and petrochemical industries. While employed in these fields for 9 1/2 years many of his job duties were the same, regardless of the process unit, facility location, or company involved. His number one job duty as a process engineer was; to provide whatever engineering expertise and services necessary to keep his assigned units operating, safely and at peak efficiency.
