Martin Vorum P.E.  is Senior Analyst with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado.  His background is in chemical engineering across a diverse range of industries and technologies.  The areas in which he is most active for NREL include:

       Support to U.S. Department of Energys Geothermal Technologies Program and others.

       Conceptual and engineering design of energy and process systems.

       Evaluating operations, economics, and systems integration scenarios.

       Developing case-specific cost models and physical/chemical modeling of process phenomena.

       Adapting technologies and analytical methods to new applications.

       Developing pilot demonstrations of technology for proof-of-concept and for commercialization testing.

Vorums background more generally has involved these fields:

      Geothermal energy  --  analysis, systems design, and technology demonstrations.

      Industrial systems development  --  integrating management, economic, and technologic solutions for planning, building, and operating systems.

      Oil, gas, and minerals  --  design engineering and field construction of resource production systems, petrochemicals manufacturing plants, and operations troubleshooting.

      Environmental restoration  --  technology transfer to adopt novel applications for hazardous materials removal and treatment of contaminated water and soils.

      Applied process systems design  --  solving issues that handicap systems' stability, productivity, and safety.
