He also traveled to Kuwait after Desert Storm to help fight pollution resulting from the burning oil fields. After the tragedy of 9-11, Converse worked with the U.S. government to improve the air quality at the Pentagon.
He also holds a patent for a new air-purification system for use in food-processing plants.
