Project Manager Process Control and Operations
Gordon’s PhD research topic is the Mechanism and kinetics of hydrogen fluoride adsorption on smelter grade alumina. He also manages LMRC’s research and development projects for smelters on key process requirements such as enhanced alumina and AlF3 feeding and control, anode effect termination, emissions control and potline circuit protection systems.
Prior to joining LMRC, Gordon worked for more than 5 years in the operations and process control departments of the Volta Aluminium Company (VALCO, Ghana) and the Qatar Aluminium Limited (Qatalum) where he gained valuable technical and hands-on experience with day-to-day potline operations and management. Apart from industrial operational experience he has also worked in project teams with world class equipment manufacturers and vendors during commissioning and start-up of a 400,000tpy cocoa processing plant in Ghana and the 585,000tpy Qatalum greenfield aluminium smelter.
