Recent Developments in Industrial Air Pollution Control​ Using Catalytic Ceramic Filters​

Join Dr. Ian Chisem, Technical Director, Ceramic Filter Alliance, UK, and Mr. Cameron Kiani, Senior Project Engineer, Precision Partners, USA, at the upcoming WFI 2023 Annual Virtual Conference on December 5, 2023. They will present the latest insights on "Recent Developments in Industrial Air Pollution Control​ Using Catalytic Ceramic Filters."

Dr. Ian Chisem gained a PhD from the University of Cambridge in 1996 in novel inorganic layered complexes and their use as environmentally-friendly catalysts. Post-doctoral research followed, in Green Chemistry, supported reagents and heterogenous catalysts. He later joined MEL Chemicals, a leading supplier of zirconium-based chemicals, where he developed new manufacturing processes for high surface area doped zirconium oxides used in automotive catalyst washcoats. In 2007 Ian joined Clear Edge, now part of Filtration Group, where he managed development projects across wet and dry filtration applications. Ian developed hot gas ceramic filters for industrial air pollution control, to meet rigorous legislative requirements. He held the position of CTO for the Longking-Clear Edge Chinese joint venture, having played a major role in establishing a new ceramic filter production facility. Following the formation of Ceramic Filter Alliance in April 2022, Ian joined the team as Technical Director, leveraging his many years of ceramic product knowledge and hot gas filtration experience to provide unparalleled service to customers.

Mr. Cameron Kiani has gained significant experience developing air pollution control projects which utilize innovative technologies to solve complex problems. Born and raised in California, Cameron graduated from the California Maritime Academy with a BS in Mechanical Engineering before working on a wide range of air pollution control projects, including industrial flue gas treatment, diesel exhaust capture and control, and waste heat recovery. He has been involved from initial project conceptualization to final optimization in the field, helping clients achieve long term environmental compliance. In 2019, Cameron managed the largest ceramic filter system installation in North America; retrofitting a site to remove wet scrubbers and replacing it with advanced ceramic filter technology. At Precision Partners, Cameron works within multidisciplinary teams to support our clients in the integration of our innovative ‘Environmental Compliance as a Service’ (E-CaaS) solutions.
