Joshua Cloakey

Joshua attended Dunedin High School where he completed the 4 year NJROTC program and the 4 year Academy of Drafting and Design. As part of these programs, Joshua worked extensively, and became very proficient, with AutoCAD Software. Joshua then attended the country’s oldest Private Military College, Norwich University. While at Norwich University he completed the 4 Year Naval ROTC Marine Corps Option Program and majored in Biochemistry. During his senior year Joshua actively participated in two major research studies.

The first was in conjunction with the University of Paris in France establishing drinking water guidelines for the World Health Organization. His participation was the analysis and quantification of the element Vanadium and its toxicity. The second project was with the University of Boudreaux and the National Institute of Standards and Measurements in Belgium. This project was the analysis of multiple ethyl violet samples that were used in an experimental procedure for the detection of arsenic. Joshua’s involvement included an analysis as to why one of the three ethyl violet samples was successful and the other two were not. Using a multitude of instrumentation and carefully reviewing previous data a conclusion was made and was subsequently found to be the root of the problem. Since graduation in 2012 Joshua formulated the AlOxidize process and multiple other metal finishing processes. He has also designed a closed loop, Zero discharge, zero Intake, water treatment system that is in full operation.
