You cannot turn on a computer or television, without seeing a story about climate change. Our planet is being choked by man-made emissions, and experts spend countless hours and dollars researching ways to reduce this plague, that we continue to bring upon ourselves. Changes have already been made in many industries, with hybrid vehicles, solar powered homes, and products made of recycled goods becoming ever more popular. But there are still huge questions when it comes to manufacturing and industrial fields. Nuclear power plants, steel companies, waste management facilities, coal mines… all industries that have come under fire in recent years, for producing dangerous emissions. The majority of recommendations to reduce these emissions involve cutting back on production, which could potentially have massive economic repercussions. But here is the thing, there is a simple solution, that has existed for decades. [Read more…]
I am admittedly, and shamefully, a former climate-change denier. There. I said it! I believed that global warming was real, but thought that humans played little to no role in the process.

With this being Day 1 of our, series we decided to keep it simple with #Recycle. Looking for ways to improve on the basics of cardboard, glass and paper? Well look no further, those little K-cups of coffee can be recycled! It is estimated that 17 million K-cups end up in US landfills every year. Keep watching for more easy ways to save the planet from your pollution control partners at GCES. [Read more…]
National Professional Engineers Week: February 18th through February 24th
Gulf Coast Environmental Systems is proud of the superior team of engineers and pollution control experts that we employ. Not only are they the who’s who of industry experts but they are truly wonderful people who are engaged in their communities, families and of course their careers. With this being National Professional Engineers week there is no better opportunity to introduce a few of our team members.
Education: Vanderbilt University, Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Mechanical Engineering (ME)
What is your favorite GCES product or service? Our Engineering Services because we are able to make the most positive impact with customers by improving people’s lives both at work and at home. The equipment we design and supply brings it all together making the work we do within our engineering team and services come to fruition.
What is the best part of working at GCES? Being able to bring an idea from paper to operation.
As our Technical Director, Chad Clark, has developed many of our internationally recognized BACT (Best Available Control Technology) air pollution control systems including the breakthrough patent pending Aqueous Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO). Mr. Clark is a graduate of Vanderbilt University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and has spent most of his career in environmental protection engineering. Mr. Clark is a sought after speaker and thermal oxidizer expert who is regularly sought out for this knowledge on air pollution control technologies and remediation best practices. Having recently developed a line of Thermal Oxidizers that can be operated through heat recovery, natural gas or electric, Mr. Clark has once again lead the field in technological development and best practices.
When Mr. Clark is not immersed in work and on the road visiting customers, he enjoys continuing his worldwide travel with his wife of 15 years and 3 beautiful children. He finds it exciting to view different cultures and experiences through a child’s eyes. Mr. Clark believes there can never be too much time on a golf course.
