Dr. Lardinois focuses on applying the fundamentals of chemical engineering, chemistry, and material science to investigations and analyses of safety incidents involving chemical processes, fires, explosions, and consumer products. He has also studied formulations and characteristics of materials with propensities to self-heat and spontaneously combust. Dr. Lardinois has extensive experience with heterogeneous catalyst formulation, characterization, kinetics, and stability/deactivation for various applications, such as pollution control technologies for NOx (x = 1, 2) abatement in diesel engine exhaust and hydrocarbon upgrading.

Dr. Lardinois received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, where he researched the upgrading of biomass derived feed stocks to value-added chemicals. After a summer sojourn to the Technical University of Vienna in Austria, Dr. Lardinois started his Ph.D. studies at Purdue University. His dissertation focused on the influence of zeolite material properties and external gas conditions on the thermodynamics and kinetics of metal structural interconversion for the abatement of NOx pollution from automotive engine exhaust. Throughout his Ph.D. studies, Dr. Lardinois worked with many advanced catalyst/material characterization instruments and frequently consulted with automotive companies.
