SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCE
With more than twenty years of experience in design, testing, optimization and trouble shooting of odor control systems involving wet scrubbing, dry scrubbing, biofiltration and thermal oxidation, Dr. Ned Ostojic is one of the leading odor control consultants in the United States. As such, he conducts training seminars in operation of odor control systems, in particular wet scrubbing. His expertise is requested in peer review and value engineering committees for evaluation of odor control systems.
Presently, as Principal and the Director of Engineering at Odor Science & Engineering, Inc., Dr. Ostojic directs all of the company's activities in the odor control area. Before forming OS&E in 1987, Dr. Ostojic served as Principal Consulting Engineer at TRC-Environmental Consultants (TRC) managing a wide range of projects in the area of industrial pollution control technology with an emphasis on odor control.
As Director of Research and Development for two wet scrubber manufacturers specializing in odor control (Pollution Control systems, Division of Geo. A. Hormel & Co., Minneapolis, Minnesota and Entoleter, Inc., New Haven, CT) he provided key technical input in design of numerous odor control systems. He participated in the development of new, successful, wet scrubbing concepts such as the centripetal vortex scrubber by Entoleter. In his subsequent years as an odor control consultant, Dr. Ostojic was frequently called to diagnose and correct deficiencies in existing odor control systems and in specifying odor control systems for future installations.
