712 Projects + 106 Countries + 46 Years =

Bob Morhard is available to join your project team to quickly and cost-effectively provide technical subject-matter expertise with "know-how" acquired by experience gained within 712 projects over 46 years in 106 countries supporting most of the world's largest explosive, propellant, detonator and military ordnance producers. This will enable your company to achieve the Best Demonstrated Available Technology (BDAT), equipment and procedures. The range of projects completed includes: research and development, raw materials approvals, formulation and chemistry, processing plant design and siting, regulatory approvals, UN and US DOT Hazardous Materials Certification, production processing, equipment design, procedure development, packaging design, handling, operator safety, risk-management, storage, logistics, use and application, insurance underwriting, accident investigation, life-cycle management, recycling and disposal.
