Dr. Philip Leveson, Chief Scientist

Dr. Leveson graduated from Sheffield University (England) with a Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering with a specialization in Fuel Technologies. After graduating Dr. Leveson remained at Sheffield and completed a Ph.D. focused specifically on the oxygen enrichment of combustion systems. Upon completion of his Ph.D., Dr. Leveson accepted a position at the State University of Campinas, in Brazil, where he worked on advanced processes for the gasification of sugar cane to produce hydrogen. In 2000 Dr. Leveson returned to the United Kingdom and began working at the centre for Process Intensification and Innovation based at the school of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials of Newcastle University. In 2004 Dr. Leveson relocated to Clarkson University, in Potsdam, New York where he helped Clarkson establish a Process Intensification and Clean Technology Group.  
Market Opportunities
Waste Water Treatment Plants
offer a unique opportunity for biomass to energy solutions to utilize sludge as fuel to reduce disposal and feedstock costs. Baseload heat and power can be provided to reduce costs and/or generate revenue. Flared methane can be captured and gas scrubbing costs are lower for economic benefit.
Landfill Gas to Energy Projects
with declining gas production curves possess pre-existing infrastructure including; land, buildings, reciprocating engines, grid connections and power purchase agreements. The life and value of these assets are extended and increased with the ZeroPoint solution. Waste wood streams further enhance project economics at many sites seeking alternative uses for this material.
Remote Power Generation
currently occurs with high cost diesel fuel. The ZeroPoint solution offers an attractive replacement or co-fueling opportunity. This solution is economic without subsidies.
