Title: DBNPA Chemistry to Know For Its Cost Effective Use
DBNPA Chemistry to Know for its Cost Effective use – not a sales pitch
DBNPA Discovery & Earliest Usage to Today’s Use
Manufacturing process as that is key to its reactivity and how best to use
Regulatory status as biocide and also as non-biocide
Chemical Inventory (TSCA) status in light of today’s use of such as trade barrier/protectionism
Chemical Composition & Reactivity
Formulating in light of its reactive chemistry nature
Its positioning among biocides
Cooling Tower Operational Conditions as system demand
Water chemistry conditions as system demand
- Reviewing the key chemical dosing operational parameters ( frequency of dosing, duration of dosing, continuous and/or semi-continuous dosing) with respect to system operating parameters such as blowdown and COC (Cycles of Concentration)
- Discussing specific chemical reactivity of DBNPA and how to best it keeping such details in mind
- Discussing dosing strategies for best biocidal control in various system demand scenarios
- Discussing dosing strategies for best biocidal performance balanced with effluent discharge considerations
Attila Relenyi founded AMSA, Inc. in 1996 and for 21 years has managed AMSA, Inc. and served as President of of AMSA, Inc. He has extensive experience years in China, Taiwan, and Philippines of over 16 years. He has been embedded in Southeast Asean region at times for 2-4 continuous months, and enjoys very special relationships in the Asean region. Relative to this topic, geothermal, his leg work as of 2002, that resulted in a one-molecule solution to the prevention of sulfur and biofilm deposition and also for the removal of solid deposits.
He received my B.S. degree University of Detroit, M.S. degree in physical organic chemistry from the University of Akron, Ph.D. physical organic chemistry from the University of Akron;
Worked for 16 years at The Dow Chemical Company, in industrial antimicrobials (biocides) research and technical sales. Most notably, Attila contributed to the chemical development and synthesis of over 50 compounds. He founded & led the new biocide research program for industrial cooling water/biofilm solutions which at that time was limited to one key biocide, called DBNPA. Today, Dow is a powerhouse in biocides, not through R&D but through other company purchase. His most noted accomplishment was to take gram quantity of a new class of biocides (alkylthioethylamines) commercial and finally, through an 8 year process of USA EPA biocide registration.
Author or co-author of over 53 publications, some of which are internal but formal publications at The Dow Chemical Company. He is inventor or joint inventor of 17 US patents and their global equivalents of which seven patents are or have been revenue generating.
His scientific work focused in industrial biocides in the areas of biocides synthesis, chemical processes (e.g., production of biocides, synthesis and formulations), analytical chemistry, industrial microbiology (e.g., anaerobe assays), molecule design (e.g., developed QSAR equations based on MNDO and MM2 calculations), marketing and sales.
