Arun S. Wagh, Principal Developer, Ceramicrete
Dr. Wagh has a PhD in physics. His expertise includes radioactive, hazardous, and mineral waste management and structural ceramics. With his colleagues, he developed a program at Argonne National Laboratory based on chemically bonded phosphate ceramics for radioactive and hazardous waste stabilization, pioneered research on bauxite tailings (high volume residue from alumina refineries) in Jamaica, directed projects related to utilization of greenhouse CO2, and hot gas ceramic cross-flow filters at Argonne, and developed a connected grain model to explain porosity and grain size dependence of transport properties in solids. He also worked as a consultant to several major firms in the aluminum industry.
His work has been subject of several articles in news magazines such as New Scientist, Chicago Tribune, and on TV programs such as Beyond 2000 and CLTV.
He has authored and co-authored approximately 100 scientific papers and holds five patents in the United States and abroad, and several patents are pending. See selected publications.
