Working with the Paper, Printing and Packaging Industry Research Association (Pira) in the 1970s he developed the idea of a cereal straw biorefinery and, since that time, he has been associated with the development of the BioRegional MiniMill to develop the idea further. A semi commercial plant is about to be commissioned.

For more than ten years he ran Cross and Bevan Laboratories where he worked on pulping processes (wood and non-wood), use of non-traditional cellulosic materials for paper and board making, pulp testing etc. This work included the use of black liquor as a sizing agent, and a the development of non-traditional chemical recovery processes. A very important feature of this work was the closing up of pulp and paper mills to protect the environment and improve profitability. He carried out projects for the UK Government, European Industrial Bank and UNIDO.

He has written and edited a text book for paper and board coating personnel for PITA (Paper Industry Technical Association) and has given papers on the exploitation of non-wood fibres for paper and board making. He has also produced training manuals for paper companies starting up new mills and restarted and ran the Frogmore Paper Mill (site of the first Fourdrinier) for the Paper Trail Project. He later became Technical Director. Now he is a Director of BioRegional MiniMills (UK)and consultant to a project developing a new flooring material based on cellulose. The latter project involved the development of a new high consistency refiner.
