Biography - Larry R. Krupp

Mr. Krupp assists clients by blending his expertise in the areas of environmental, health and safety (EHS) compliance and management systems, information technology management and software development, and environmental engineering. Major projects are described below:

EHS Compliance and Management Systems

  • Compliance Auditing: For a range of commercial and industrial clients, served as team member and team leader on environmental, health, and safety compliance audits. These audits covered a range of environmental disciplines, including hazardous and solid waste management, and water pollution control, air pollution control, spill prevention and control, PCB management, asbestos management, and toxic substances control. Mr. Krupp has conducted more than 30 compliance audits in states across the U.S. Industries audited have included heavy equipment, paint, plastics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and automotive parts manufacturing, warehouse and distribution operations, food processing plants, and hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities.
  • ISO 14001 and Management Systems Assessments: For a range of private and public clients, conducted a range of environmental, health, and safety management systems assessments, including ISO 14001 environmental management systems gap analyses. These assessments analyzed such areas as resources, policies and procedures, management and staff committment, regulatory tracking, information technology management, self-assurance systems, and other management systems topics.
  • Implementation Assistance: For a range of private clients, assisted in the implementation of environmental management systems (EMS). These projects included a range of activities, including interdepartmental meetings, development of standard operating procedures and plans, training, and computer systems development.
  • Hazardous Waste Site Assessments: Assessments of hazardous waste treatment facilities as part of Arthur D. Little's SiteWATCHTM program. These assessments, covering landfill, incinerator, and waste treatment operations, include complete descriptions of following factors: facility design; capabilities; laboratory capabilities, equipment, and procedures; regulatory compliance history; and waste tracking and acceptance procedures.
  • Due Diligence Assessments: Performance of environmental due diligence assessments for commercial clients. Properties investigated have included oil refineries, manufacturing, warehouses, and other facilities. These investigations focused on the existing and potential environmental risks at the subject properties, including environmental compliance, existence of subsurface contamination, historical land use, etc.

Information Technology Management and Software Development

  • Conceptualized, created, and managed ADL/Track, an audit and corrective action management software tool. This system enables auditors to perform audits in the field, track audit results, print audit reports and analyze audit findings, develop and track corrective action plans, and develop and track compliance deadlines. The system provides a wide range of functionality for analyzing and tracking information across facilities, divisions, and companies.
  • For an aerospace company, developed a Safety, Health, and Environmental Performance Index (SHEPI) system. This software system allows the company to numerically score and rank its facilities' environmental, health, and safety performance. The system, which includes a system of more than 200 quantitative and qualitative metrics, scores performance across functional areas and provides total scores, functional area scores, scores across divisions, and company-wide average scores.
  • For a hazardous waste management facility, designed and implemented a comprehensive waste tracking and operations management system. The system permits real-time tracking of wastes from arrival through storage, processing (including blending/batching operations), restorage, and disposal. Extensive data, collected as wastes are processed, are accessible through a menu-driven system which permits instant access to reports regarding the status of individual shipments and containers, process operations, productivity analysis, accountability, and compliance status regarding facility operations. The system of 20 related databases manages approximately 300,000 records per year.
  • For clients in various industries (e.g., petroleum, food products, resources, consumer products) provided data manipulation and conversion services to convert compliance- and operations-based data into different applications. For example, conversion of spreadsheet-based data from multiple sources into the ADL/Track audit and corrective action software for ongoing tracking.
  • For a hazardous waste management facility, designed, developed, and implemented SLAM, a menu-driven expert system that optimizes the scheduling, processing, storage, and disposal of wastes requiring treatment. An operations management model, SLAM incorporates facility operational variables, physical limits, working schedules, operational preferences, regulatory compliance and permit restrictions, and scheduling information from existing facility computer systems. On a real-time basis, SLAM prioritizes and combines wastes for treatment, determines when and how wastes should be treated, stored, and disposed, and prints operating schedules for different operating groups.
  • For a consumer product company, developed the Air Emissions Modeling System (AEMS) for calculating and reporting air pollutant emissions from manufacturing operations. The AEMS system uses purchase records, material and process information, and facility permit and process limits and calculates actual and potential emissions as well as emissions extrapolated to year-end. The system automatically provides warnings when emissions are nearing or have exceeded permit, process, or regulatory limits.
  • For a hazardous waste management facility, developed a menu-driven system to track regulatory compliance deadlines and the completion of compliance-related tasks assigned to facility staff.
  • For a paper manufacturer, developed a menu-driven database system to analyze the lifecycle impacts of paper made from combinations of pulp from different mills. Based on extensive environmental, energy, and production data collected from the manufacturer's pulp mills, the system allows the manufacturer to instantly determine the environmental lifecycle impacts, using the European Eco-label methodology, of paper products made with different combinations of pulp from the different mills. The system was created using Paradox software.
  • For a law firm, developed of a database system to analyze 19,000 occurrences of waste dumped at a Superfund site. Data were audited for accuracy, analyzed by waste type, facility/generator, year, and volume, and correlated with data provided from other sources. Extensive sensitivity analyses were conducted. Techniques included database programming, spreadsheet analysis, optical scanning, and conversion among hardware and software platforms.
  • As part of a Superfund feasibility study for the U.S. EPA, developed a database system to analyze groundwater and soil data for a Superfund site. Analysis included ranking of pollutants (organics, inorganics, metals) based on frequency of detection, concentration, media, and geographic location. The system included a graphical, color-coded system for analyzing contamination at different depths within wells and borings.
  • For a commercial hazardous waste management company, assessed the management and use of a company-wide computerized waste tracking system at one of the company's facilities. This review included an in depth assessment of facility operations, computer system use and management, identification of key problems, and recommendation of possible solutions.
  • Customized and enhanced the U.S. EPA's Dietary Residue Exposure System (DRES), a relational database system used to perform sensitivity analyses of the effects of pesticide food residues on subgroups of the U.S. population. Mr. Krupp's role included the modification of system algorithms, enhancement of the user interface, and creation of additional analytical tools to perform customized calculations of the data and print customized reports.
  • Additional systems developed by Mr. Krupp include: A system for tracking the progress, data, results, regulatory deadlines, and submittals for environmental fate and toxicology studies underway at laboratories nationwide; a system for recording, tracking, and reporting the regulatory status of pesticides; a system for managing library holdings; and a system for managing client contact information.

Environmental Engineering

  • For EPA's ARCS (Superfund) program, performance of a feasibility study and technology assessment for a Superfund site contaminated with volatile and semivolatile organics, metals, PCBs, and pesticides in soil and groundwater. In addition to remedial design and cost estimation, key responsibilities included management and analysis of data through the development of customized software systems.
  • To support a legal action, performed retroactive analysis of waste acids disposed of at a Superfund site and performed design and cost analysis of a treatment facility to treat the wastes.
  • For a consumer products manufacturer, analyzed the environmental fate of a chemical proposed as a substitute compound in a commercial product formulation.
  • For a private interest, compared existing techniques for forming biodegradable polymers and plastics, examined existing scientific biodegradability data for such materials, and estimated theoretical biodegradability based on product compositions.
  • For several private hazardous waste disposal facilities, conducted detailed facility assessments of the adequacy of the waste acceptance, waste analysis, and waste tracking and handling systems. The reviews focused on regulatory requirements as well as best management practices.
  • For a commercial client in the food industry, surveyed the worldwide manufacturers of biodegradable plastics to identify materials with the physical and biodegrading properties compatible for the product's application.
  • For a European client, conducted a comparison of existing techniques for forming biodegradable polymers and plastics, reviewed the existing patent field, and examined existing scientific biodegradability data for such materials.
  • For a manufacturer of biodegradable plastics, provided independent verification and analysis of biodegradability test methods, laboratory results, and data interpretation. Also provided assistance in defining product strategy for biodegradable products.
