Anderson, Paul G.

<p><strong></strong>Paul G. Anderson is Director of Process Technology for Coperion Corporation in Ramsey, NJ., where he is responsible for Process Engineering and New Technology Development for Twin Screw Extrusion/Compounding within Coperion Corporation, and R&amp;D coordination between Coperion in Europe and the U.S.</p> <p>Anderson received his BS in Theoretical &amp; Applied Mechanics from Cornell University and Ph.D. in Materials Science from Northwestern.</p> <p>He has more than 30 years of experience in industrial polymer development and processing experience.&nbsp; Anderson's primary areas of technical experience have been reactive compounding, and devolatilization.&nbsp; Anderson holds patents in both of these areas as well as patents on screw element design for improved mixing. He has also worked extensively on compounding of multi phase engineering polymers, including nanocomposites and fiber reinforced materials. More recently the focus of his work has been on processing bio-materials.</p> <p>Anderson is a past-president (2009-&rsquo;10) of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE). and an elected member of the SPE Executive Committee since 2004, during which&nbsp; time he has also served as Secretary and Treasurer.</p> <p>Anderson serves on the Editorial Board of <em>Advances in Polymer Technology</em>, and is a member of the Board of Trustees for the Polymer Processing Institute. He has authored papers for several journals as well as several book chapters.&nbsp; These include <em>Mixing Practices in Co-rotating Twin-Screw Extruders</em> in &ldquo;Mixing and Compounding of Polymers&rdquo; edited by Manas &amp; Tadmor; <em>The Werner &amp; Pfleiderer Twin-Screw Co-Rotating Extruder System</em> in "Plastics Compounding&rdquo; edited by Todd, <em>Twin-screw Extrusion</em> in the 2006 edition of &ldquo;Encyclopedia of Chemical Processing&rdquo;, and <em>Compounding Layered Silicate Nanocomposites</em>&nbsp; in &ldquo;Polymer Nanocomposites Handbook&rdquo; edited by Gupta, Kennel and Kim.</p> <p>[Adapted from "<a href="http://www.4spe.org/plastics-encyclopedia/paul-anderson">Paul G.
