About the Author
While attending college, Mr. Jackson worked full-time as a manager of a certified testing laboratory analyzing pollutants in wastewater generated and discharged by industrial manufacturers and municipal wastewater treatment plants. Following graduation and working for Hughes Aircraft Company as a group head of precision cleaning and contamination control in the mid-1980’s, he developed first generation CO2 immersion cleaning processes for use in the manufacture of advanced aerospace products. While moonlighting the construction of his first commercial centrifugal CO2 immersion cleaning system in his garage between 1989 and 1992, he worked as an environmental consultant, helping manufacturers minimize and treat EPA-regulated wastewater effluents generated by their electroplating and metal finishing operations. Mr. Jackson launched his first CO2 business venture in 1993 and over the following 12 years developed and commercialized several CO2 immersion and spray cleaning products and accessories.
