JAMES A. TITMAS, PE

Professional Profile

James A. Titmas, P.E., holds a BSCE degree from the University of Akron in Ohio. As a Co-op Engineering student in Civil Engineering he worked for the City of Akron, Department of Sewers in September of 1957. Beginning in 1959 while still in his College of Engineering, he began thesis work on the use of oxidation with heat as a broad-spectrum method of waste destruction. Since that time he has continued to champion the cause to end the practice of burial/land storage described as "disposal". Starting in 1960, James A. Titmas served three years in the regular United States Army as an Airborne Ranger officer in the Corps of Engineers. His military operating specialties included Construction, Staff Functions at the S-2, S-3, G-2 and G-3 levels, Small Unit Commander, Technical Intelligence and Nuclear Demolitions. Other experience included planning and design of airports, munitions storage, earth structures, foundations, quarry operations, expedient bridge construction, and liaison with German and French engineers for heavy equipment routing through Europe, including dynamic bridge loading analysis with field testing as well as spill analysis and water treatment. During military service continuing postgraduate education included study of European languages, University of Maryland, and after military service, advanced mathematics at the University of Akron.

He began his career in consulting engineering in 1963 in municipal electric power generation, including rate analysis, thermal mass balance, coal-steam power generation, fossil fuel emissions control, load factor corrections, thermal cycle efficiency enhancements, operational troubleshooting, monitor and control methods, bond financing, and steam turbine extraction steam usage. Research and development involved rubber de-polymerization and recycling as well as design for interstate highways. In 1967 he authored the design criteria for lateral stability for thirty story structural frames and long span beams still in use today at Babcock and Wilcox. From 1968 to 1977 James A. Titmas was in responsible charge of the civil and sanitary engineering services division for Hale and Kullgren, Inc., which included custom designed wastewater treatment plants, wastes analysis, wastes minimization or reduction, solid wastes disposal – permitting and standards, statistical comparison of waste generation to production, industrial and commercial structures and land development, drainage, bridge, road and highways and railroad design engineering. This included conversion of rubber recycling efforts through odor control, reducing employee exposure to process chemical use, wastes mitigation and reduction. He developed the soils science department for foundation and earth structures, and had lead responsibility for the protection of historic structures. He established design policies for Hale and Kullgren Inc. for industrial foundations in expansive soils and unconsolidated soils. During this period he did extensive work in the design of industrial service structures supporting moving loads including heavy equipment and massive industrial mixers. In the latter part of this period emphasis was centered on troubleshooting industrial waste problems, structural failures from vibratory loadings, earthquakes, sonic boom cracking and complications involving resonance and unbalanced rotating machinery loadings. Ongoing water supply and wastes treatment responsibilities included work on plants up to 150 million gallons per day and solid waste loadings up to 2,000 tons per day.

During his career he has lead responsibility in over eight hundred projects, spanning twenty four States, and nineteen foreign countries. He has authored numerous technical papers, most of which are held on a proprietary basis by his clients and employers. Mr. Titmas has authored engineering design and zoning standards as well as portions of national building codes. For the first thirty years of his career his focus was on engineering problems troubleshooting, maintenance programs and distressed plant efficacy improvements. A significant portion of the period from 1977 to present, as the owner of his own consulting firm, has included public speaking, seminar presentations and expert witness testimony in litigation involving Civil, Structural, Foundation, and Sanitary Engineering matters including wastewater treatment, wastes reduction and Industrial Waste Treatment. Starting in 1988 he has served as an expert witness for the United States Department of Justice to identify the sources of waste originating from World War II industrial, synthetic rubber, and petrochemical production facilities. In 1996 he co-authored papers for the United States Department of Energy on the volume reduction and elimination of organic debris from low level mixed radioactive wastes. He has also been active in the fields of wastes control in naturally occurring radioactive wastes from the petroleum industry as well as chemical and biological weapons demilitarization including Lewisite and arsenic based chemical weapons.

Beginning in 1997 he has been working with emerging economies in Africa, Asia, India, the Americas, Europe and the near east to establish a frame work for new methods of wastes management with emphasis on producing economically viable products from wastes to support, all or in part, the costs of wastes elimination. Seminars have been organized to brief environmental authorities on emerging technologies and design approval parameters in the U.S. and abroad. These include programs to control deforestation, solid waste management, and garbage conversion to fuel grade ethanol and animal feed. New programs have been proposed for sewage treatment and the conversion of residual wastewater treatment plant wastes concentrate, or sludge, into phosphate, lime, ammonium nitrate and urea fertilizers. These include domestic, commercial, industrial, solid and toxic wastes management procedures. James A. Titmas holds twenty three method and apparatus patents, including twenty US patents, plus their multiple foreign equivalent patents, directly relating to the development and exploitation of the gravity pressure vessel and supporting infrastructure critical to the commercial application of the conversion of organic wastes to ethanol. Currently, another twenty more patents are in application procedures. These are in methods of wastes management, structural components enhancement, vented foundations, trace dissolved materials extraction, rubber de-vulcanization, soils decontamination, renewable energy sources including wave and tidal sources and multiple solar heat applications, vibration isolation, non-metallic rechargeable batteries, water desalination, sub-dewpoint air emission, bridge and roadway structures. The latest patents relate to the commercially viable conversion of wastes to marketed products. These include methods for true de-vulcanization, or the severance of the carbon sulfur bonds in used rubber to allow actual reuse and recycling as rubber, and the highest and best use of used polymers. The most recent awarded patents relate to efforts directed to sub-dew point emission control and the commercial recovery of acids and toxic metals from air combustion.
