(We love educational material. It's getting rarer and rarer for universities to offer classes on industrial processes. They are usually left to teach theory and let the greenhorn learn on the job. We're writing a size reduction systems article for ROCK PRODUCTS. If you have any resources we can use, please send them on.)
From the Bulk Inside newsletter Dec 7, 2015
CHATHAM, KENT – A range of very popular and useful short courses designed specifically for the powder and bulk materials handling industry.
Our range of short courses is designed to equip delegates with the means to identify and overcome difficulties that may arise, saving time and increasing productivity.
Our experts’ in-depth knowledge as specialists in powders and bulk solids is complemented by their experience across all industries including, but not limited to, renewable energy, pharmaceuticals, process and chemical engineering, recycling, food processing and mining.
In order to meet Industry’s changing needs, we continually update the range of courses to reflect current trends, hence the introduction of 3 new courses this year.
The courses are all held at our site in Kent, on the University of Greenwich campus.
