Informa Exhibitions Ltd regrets to announce the closure of Solids & Bulk Handling magazine.

Solids & Bulk Handling magazine has been affected by the ongoing downward trend of on-the-page marketing spend. This combined with the economic pressures that the loose and solids handling industry face has ultimately led to the sad and difficult decision to cease publishing the magazine.

The November/December 2017 issue of Solids & Bulk Handling will be its last edition.


Best Practice Guide on Biomass Handling and Biomass/Coal co-handling May 26, 2011

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology  has produced a report  entitled Best Practice Guide on Biomass Handling and Biomass/Coal Co-handling.

This was prepared for the Power Industry with funding and collaboration from the British Coal Utilisation Research Association and E-On UK Ltd by former PhD student, Dr NS Khan as part of his project with the aid of his supervisors, Prof MSA Bradley and Dr RJ Berry.

The report arose as a direct output of the project, which set out to look at identifying and resolving common problems of fuel handling in co-firing of coal and biomass, however the findings are equally applicable to handling of biomass alone.  The study involved the active participation of E-On UK in collating experiences gained over the period from about 1999 to 2007, as well as extensive characterisation and handling trials at The Wolfson Centre.

The resulting document is intended as a guide for 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.
