Course Offered Waste and Recycled Bulk Materials Handling

Article-Course Offered Waste and Recycled Bulk Materials Handling

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology is offering a one-day course this July on handling and storage issues with waste and recycled bulk materials at the University of Greenwich [UK], Medway campus.

On July 5, 2016, the center’s director and professor of bulk and particulate technologies, Mike Bradley, research fellow Dr. Rob Berry, and consultant engineer Richard Farnish will lead participants through industrial examples and case studies to discuss issues in handling and storing waste and recycled bulk materials.

The course will examine:

  • What are the measurable bulk characteristics of waste and recycled bulk materials – how can these be defined contractually and operationally?
  • Implications of variation in fuel quality in pre- and post-combustion processes
  • How do different bulk particles influence the approach to handling strategies?
  • Discharge behavior commonly found in storage schemes and how to predict reclaim efficiency?
  • Options for transportation of bulk material
  • Design options for modification to existing plant and new build considerations?
  • “Future proofing” process plants for unknown input stock
  • Reclaim equipment design and operational characteristics for bunkers and silos
  • General trouble-shooting of handling problems.

The course is oriented toward plant managers, plant designers, maintenance staff, operational staff and senior management. Registration costs £490 per participant.
