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.


Biomass Handling, Feeding and Storage short course - another date added November 10, 2011

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology is holding a one day course on  15 February 2012 at the University of Greenwich in Kent on Biomass Handling, Feeding and Storage, with the emphasis being on the practical aspects of technology.

Each type of material has it’s own  different property issues, which mean different methods of control need to be applied.  The course provides a comprehensive introduction to the basics, highlighting problem areas likely to be encountered. The following topics will be discussed:
• Common issues for existing and new systems
• Best practice for dust emission and control
• The special properties of biomass
• Design for new systems and equipment 

Case studies will be used to illustrate the presentations where applicable, and substantial discussion periods are included to permit the analysis of specific problems experienced by attendees.

The course has been designed to help delegates identify and resolve common problems of fuel handling in co-firing of coal and biomass, or biomass alone.
