Chris Burk, PE OwnerBurk Engineering LLCI help companies jump-start their process technologies on the road to commercialization. I specialize in building techno-economic models and helping companies use them to make quantitatively-informed decisions throughout evaluation, development, and scale-up. To bridge the gap leading to detailed engineering and fabrication, I also provide conceptual engineering and basic engineering design services. I have fabricated pilot plants with EPC firms, and I have bid out projects with technology developers. So, I understand both sides of the equation, and I can efficiently navigate this process and identify options that meet technical and financial goals.My clients range from technology developers, to investors, to academics. I love what I do, and I'm always looking forward to learning about the next new technology.www.burkengineeringllc.com Connect on AIChE Engage ChEnected contributions Pro Tip: Searchable Excel Stream Tables with VBA Jul 25, 2017 . by Chris Burk, PE The astute process engineer loves building stream tables in Excel.
