    various other industrial facilities.

Air Operating Reports, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, 1995-
   2003. Mr Rubin has prepared and submitted annual FDEP air operating reports
   (AOR) for various REI clients in Florida. AOR submittals included emissions
   calculations and reporting for glass furnaces, large industrial boilers and gas turbines,
   anaerobic reactors, feed mill dryers, printing presses, air curtain incinerators, sand
   blasting units, and various other industrial air emissions sources, including diesel and
   other fossil fuel driven engines.

Risk Management Planning, Tropicana Products, CA,FL, 1998-2002. Mr. Rubin
   developed risk management plans for three (3) Tropicana facilities in the referenced
   states, including preparation and submittal of EPA’s electronic RMP*Submit and an
   extensive RMP submittal to the LEPC, documenting the entire facility RMP program.
   Off-site Consequence Analysis were completed using approved dispersions models
   (DEGAS, ALOHA, SLAG) with receptor identification performed, based on the
   modeling results.

Expert Witness Testimony, Carlton, Fields, Ward, Emmanuel, Smith, & Cutler,
   P.A., 1999. Mr. Rubin provided expert witness testimony regarding matters related
   to hazardous waste storage regulations. His testimony was instrumental in settling a

   property adjacent to an industrial facility.

Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan Assessments, US Department of Defense,
   1995-97. Mr. Rubin performed field assessments for both initial development and
   periodic updating of SWPP Plans for military installations, including Ft. Jackson,
   Columbia, SC; Ft. Stewart, Savannah, GA; and Ft. Benning, Columbus, GA. Field

  incineration, neutralization, detoxification, and stabilization. Total project costs were
  over $75 million. The project entailed the compilation of a 3500 page permit
  application for both RCRA and air permits. Mr. Rubin coordinated the efforts of
  eight individual contractors while preparing RCRA, Air, and Stormwater permit
  applications, overseeing approximately $1 million in contracts. Ultimately Mr. Rubin
  was responsible for negotiation of the RCRA Draft Permit.
