John Baker has over 40 years experience in implementing new technologies for more cost effective remediation and optimization of hazardous, nuclear and solid waste landfills. He previously worked 23 years for Waste Management, Inc. most recently as the Director of New Technology. In this role, Mr. Baker was responsible for developing innovative methods for environmental assessment including forensic contaminant sources for gas and liquids using geochemistry and environmental isotopes.

Mr. Baker has also developed advanced remediation techniques and enhanced renewable energy production of active and closed landfills. Mr. Baker has evaluated over 200 innovative waste management technologies for energy production including pyrolysis, gasification, plasma arc, and other treatment/conversion methods. Technical feasibility and relative economics were included. Mr. Baker also was involved in early research starting in the late '70s with DOE and USEPA for potential of pyrolysis and gasification for waste to energy and remediation. He also assisted in permitting a plasma arc hazardous waste incinerator in the early '80s. Mr. Baker also provided consulting services for two gasification companies for citing and start-up demonstrations using MSW.
