Client’s Testimonial:

“I enjoyed working with your firm. I didn’t expect that much fast approval from USCIS.”

On December 23rd, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Technology Specialist in the Field of Chemical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Chemical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Technology Specialist

Country of Origin: Iran

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: Finland

Approval Notice Date: December 23rd, 2022

Processing Time: 18 days

Case Summary:

An expert in chemical engineering with a proposed endeavor to continue designing and developing sustainable and environmentally friendly chemical processes with industrially applicable solutions for industrial waste treatment came to us for his National Interest Waiver (NIW) approval. His work in the area aimed to reduce environmental contamination by the chemical industry and advance the creation of a circular economy. So it was apparent that his work was beneficial for the United States.

Our team’s research into his background revealed that his work was indeed addressing public and environmental health concerns surrounding industrial pollution. Due to this 4 experts in the field sent in their letters of recommendation, one of which said:

“In their Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations outlined the importance of energy security and clean, safe energy sources for supporting prosperity across the world. The main benefit of renewable energy is that it does not contribute greatly to climate change through greenhouse gas emissions like fossil fuels, the primary source of energy. [The client’s] work centers on improving methods for producing liquid biofuel from abundant, renewable resources like lignocellulosic materials, and it advances global efforts to meet the need for affordable, clean energy, which aligns with the causes of energy security and environmental protection.”

This also helped us to prove that his proposed endeavor has broad implications for the United States since in addition to the financial and environmental benefits associated with his expertise in industrial inorganic solid waste treatment and the development of the process of biofuel production from waste cardboard, his research is an asset for ongoing national efforts to improve energy security in the country.

Due to his knowledge and expertise in industrial inorganic solid waste treatment, lignocellulosic bioethanol production, and industrial wastewater treatment, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for an authoritative journal in the field, some 4 times to date.

His research has also resulted in 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored), 2 conference papers (all of them first-authored), and 1 conference abstract that have been cited a total of 153 times according to Google Scholar.

Hence, his 4 years of work experience granted him an upper hand in the adjudication process. Our team used all of these information pieces to win the case without an RFE. We are proud to have worked with him and wish him the best of luck.
