President of the consulting firm John Wing, PE, LLC - has a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering with Honors from University of Florida and a Master of Engineering in Administration from Univ. of South Florida. His decades of service to the phosphate industry have involved consulting, process design, project management, technical service, process development, & production supervision. He was Sr. VP of HiTech Solutions and was previously employed by other engineering and phosphate production companies. He has engineered or managed projects for nearly all of the phosphate chemical plants in the United States and several in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, India, Australia, Africa, and South America.
John does process engineering for new plants, modifications and expansions for phosphoric acid, DAP, MAP, & TSP plants. He did process and conceptual design for six phosphoric acid evaporators, scores of fume scrubbers, and five fluosilicic acid recovery systems.
He helped pioneer the energy-efficient Hemi process by doing process design for the Belledune and Arcadian Hemi conversion, the multi-train Ma’aden plant in Saudi Arabia, and for converting huge Oswal dihydrate plant in India to Hemi-Di (a project that stalled before completion). John was owner’s engineer for Indo-Jordan Chemical Co.’s Hemi plant and now provides technical services and engineering for modifications of the plant.
