Cadets Meet with COO of Rigby Refining
Cadets and faculty from the “Decision Analysis” class had the tremendous opportunity to hear from Mr. Tom Rippert, former DSE Instructor and current Chief Operating Officer of Rigby Refining, LLC. Rigby Refining is a firm focused on supplying high quality, premium residual fuel oil for the shipping industry through a unique process. The proprietary Rigby Process is counter to other refining upgrading processes because it is designed to minimize cracking and hydrogenation while maintaining the desired bulk fuel properties and maximizing production of the patented Rigby Fuel. Mr. Rippert shared how he has employed methods and concepts taught in the course to problems in the military and the oil and gas industry.
