PROVECTUS EXECUTIVE TEAM
View our teams background and vast experience.
DR. JIM MUELLER – PRESIDENT
Dr. Mueller received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Plant & Soil Science, and a Master of Science Degree in Agronomy/Soil Microbiology from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, in 1983 and 1985, respectively. He received his Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Soil Microbiology & Biochemistry with a minor in Microbial Genetics from Clemson University in 1988. His Post-Doctoral training (1988-1990) in the Microbial Ecology & Biotechnology Branch at the U.S. EPA Environmental Research Laboratory in Gulf Breeze, Florida focused on the biodegradation of chlorinated hydrocarbons (CHCs) and organic wood preservatives (PAHs and PCP), and the subsequent bioremediation of similarly impacted environments.
In February 1990, Dr. Mueller formed SBP Technologies, Inc. (SBP) and joined the Research Staff as a Sr. Environmental Microbiologist and Chief Scientist to develop, field test and commercialize advanced bioremediation technologies and strategies focused on PAHs and CHCs. SBP was sold to The EICON Group, Inc. / Roy F. Weston, Inc. and in June 1997 Dr. Mueller joined the staff of URS Corporation (formerly DAMES & MOORE) as a Sr. Environmental Scientist and Coordinator of the international Advanced Remediation Technologies Program which he created.
He joined the staff of Malcolm Pirnie, Inc. in 2002 for a one-year assignment to enhance their Industrial Remediation Services Program and help establish the newly formed office in Chicago, IL. In 2003, he created Adventus Americas Inc. in collaboration with the Canadian parent (Adventus Remediation Technologies, Inc., formerly W.R. Grace & Co) and established offices in the USA and Europe to facilitate the implementation of various environmental biotechnologies. Adventus was sold to FMC in November 2011 and Dr. Mueller became the Senior Technology Applications Manager for their newly formed Environmental Solutions Division. FMC combined their Environmental Services Division along with other assets and sold the businesses as PeroxyChem, LLC to One Equity Partners / JP Morgan Chase in March 2014.
In April 2014, Dr. Mueller resigned from PeroxyChem to become President of Provectus Environmental Products, Inc. and commercialize genuine advances in ISCO and ISCR technologies with a focus on environmental applications of antimethanogenic compounds.
DR. J. GREG BOOTH – SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT
Dr. Booth is an environmental biogeochemist with 20 years of professional experience in basic and applied research, teaching and consulting in the fields of coastal and environmental biogeochemistry, radiochemistry applied to particle transport in fluvial systems, applied remote sensing of earth systems, soil and groundwater remediation, and environmental remediation chemistry/technology development and commercialization. Dr. Booth received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Geosciences/Geology from Southeastern Missouri State University. He received a Master of Science Degree in Aquatic Toxicology/Environmental Geochemistry and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Chemical Oceanography/Coastal Biogeochemistry from Louisiana State University.
Dr. Booth was employed as a Physical Scientist in the Earth System Science Office (ESSO), with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during 1997 – 1999; and in 2000, he began working in the environmental remediation/consulting industry. His early involvement was focused on the subsurface biogeochemistry associated with starting up and operating a very large engineered in-situ bioremediation system (~ 2000 linear feet of bio-wall) for the destruction of a mixed plume of chlorinated ethene and methane compounds in soil and groundwater beneath an active chemical manufacturing facility. He has been active with a wide range of projects involving governmental entities (e.g. NASA, EPA, NSF, Navy, Air Force), engineers, scientists, academicians, regulators and consultants, on an international scale. Dr. Booth has led efforts for the research and development of environmental remediation technologies and products, as well as, commercialization, manufacturing and site specific implementation guidance for end users. Dr. Booth has been responsible for identifying and assessing technologies and products for further development and/or strategic partner alliances focused on environmental remediation and site assessment.
Dr. Booth is a leader in the commercialization and implementation of the NASA patented Emulsified Zero Valent Iron (EZVI) technology. He has actively worked with the EZVI technology since 2003, for use as an in-situ halogenated hydrocarbon DNAPL destruction approach. Dr. Booth has also been actively involved with the development of the NASA environmental remediation technology, Activated Metal Treatment System (AMTS), which is focused on the in-situ destruction of PCB’s and other more recalcitrant compounds in our environment.
In November 2015, Dr. Booth accepted the position of Senior Vice President with Provectus Environmental Products, Inc. (PEP) to commercialize genuine advances in ISCO and ISCR technologies with a focus on continually evolving remediation chemistries that are safer to implement, provide highly effective results and are cost efficient.
MR. MATT GEARY – DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Mr. Geary has over twenty-nine years of experience in the environmental construction industry, ranging from his role as a site superintendent for one of the nation’s largest remedial construction firms to managing a remediation estimating department and serving as Vice President of a mid-sized environmental consulting firm.
Matt has a strong and diverse background in applied environmental sciences. Mr. Geary has extensive knowledge of local state and federal regulations. He served as a member of the Brownfield Action Committee (BAC) for The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). Matt has presented technical papers and case studies at many local and national conferences. His practical field experience and knowledge of local markets will provide for superior service to our valued customers.
In May 2016, Mr. Geary accepted the position of Director of Business Development with Provectus Environmental Products, Inc. (PEP) to center his efforts on developing focused, strategic solutions to address the needs of our international clients.
