APT adds Vice President of Sales as it launches new desulfurization technology

Reno, Nevada (June 6, 2018) - Alternative Petroleum Technologies, Inc. (APT) announced that Barry Dallum has joined the company as Vice President – Sales.  In his new role, Dallum will be responsible for sales, customer service, technical support and commercialization activities primarily in the desulfurization applications segment of the technologies portfolio of APT. 

The company announced earlier this year that it had completed the development of its unique, patented, cost-saving Sulfex™ desulfurization process for distillate fuels.  The Sulfex™ process uses liquids, in a low pressure and low-temperature environment, to achieve distillate fuel sulfur levels less than 15 ppm and produces a finished fuel ready for use. 

 “Barry brings an extremely strong portfolio of experience and skills to APT,” said APT Executive Director, Steve Stevanovich.

 Dallum has more than 35 years of experience in refining, petrochemical, mineral and polymer industries holding engineering, technology and marketing positions at international companies including E.I DuPont, OwensCorning, Conoco/Phillips66 and BP (British Petroleum). He has completed MBB (Master Black Belt) Lean 6Sigma certification and is an expert at operational excellence in supply chain, project management, technology commercialization, engineering, marketing and sales.

 Jack Waldron, APT Vice President and Chief Engineer, commented that “Our new Sulfex™ desulfurization process is a game changer for the petroleum industry and Barry is uniquely qualified to help us take that message to the marketplace.”

 APT’s Sulfex™ process is operationally much simpler than the HDS system currently used at refiners to desulfurize distillate fuels, making it considerably less expensive and much safer to use. The process has been independently validated by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Labs (www.anl.gov) and the initial design of the plant has also been reviewed and confirmed by global engineering firm Fluor.

 Dallum holds a BSChE from Arizona State University, management studies certification from Texas A&M University and project management certification from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
