Sustainable glycol technologies leader GlyEco, Inc. hired Wayne Merrifield as its new Lab Manager to oversee the Company's Quality Assurance Control Program.
 
Merrifield is a senior chemist with more than 20 years of experience in chemical laboratory management. In addition to overseeing the Quality Assurance Control Program, Merrifield will direct upgrades to the Company's chemical testing laboratory and manage a team of lab technicians. Prior to joining GlyEco, Merrifield held senior level lab management positions, including Manager, Quality Control at Troy Chemical Corp. and Director of Technology and Quality at Hercules Chemical Co. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology/Chemistry from Northeastern University and a Master of Science in Technology Management from Stevens Institute of Technology.
 
"We are proud to welcome Wayne to the GlyEco team in New Jersey," stated John Lorenz, CEO of GlyEco. "As a leader of green chemistry solutions, it's vital that our in-house labs are led by someone highly innovative and forward-thinking, who executes with precision and tight control protocols. Wayne's successful track record of building top-tier R&D labs, analytical labs, and quality control programs is evidence that he encompasses all these traits and more. I believe he is a tremendous addition to our management team."
 
GlyEco is building a new, larger testing laboratory at its flagship New Jersey processing center, and hiring Merrifield is the Company's first phase of this initiative. The new laboratory will be highly sophisticated and efficient and will enable the Company to complete analysis of all glycol and inhibited glycol solutions, including MEG, DEG, TEG, PG, glycerine, antifreeze, heat transfer fluids, wing deicer, and other glycol-based fluids, reducing production throughput time while maintaining compliance with ASTM E1177 Type 1 (T1) and Type 2 (T2) recycled glycol standards.
