Biomass Operations and Handling Technology
5 x 3 hour sessions. All sessions need to be attended to complete the course.
Delegates will learn the basics of:
Biomass macro-economics, subsidies and potential;
Material types, flow properties and handling equipment requirements;
Self-heating, fire, explosion and safety;
Dust and degradation, pneumatic conveying and wear.
Case studies are used to illustrate the presentations where applicable, and substantial discussion periods are included to permit the analysis of specific problems experienced by attendees.
Is this for me?
Engineers, maintenance personnel, managers and procurement executives with responsibility for obtaining and operating equipment for handling of biomass either alone or mixed with coal, in solid-fuel-fired power stations. Manufacturers of said equipment could also benefit by attending.
