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.


Bulk Handling in the Waste, Recycling and Biomass Industries March 27, 2012

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology are proud to co-sponsor the IMechE Seminar on Bulk Handling in the Waste, Recycling and Biomass Industries. 12 June 2012 at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London.

The waste processing and recycling industries are a major growth area around the world.  However there are special challenges involved due to the nature of the materials; variable, poorly flowing, low density, and the tendency to self-heat, amongst others.

To highlight these challenges, Professor Mike Bradley, Director of the Centre, will be presenting “Getting it moving”: Flow problems and solutions for waste and biomass materials

This presentation will cover:-

  • Why are some of these materials so problematic?  The basics of their flow behaviour;
  • Characterising their flow properties ;
  • Choosing equipment to suit the materials in hand ;
  • Troubleshooting flow problems ;
  • Dealing with variability;


Register for this Seminar and Keep up to date with the latest opportunities in the waste, recycling and biomass industries

• Meet Mike and his colleagues from the Wolfson Centre at our stand;
• Discuss your solids handling issues with our experts;
• Pick up our brochure or a copy of the latest Biomass Best Practice Guide;
 Sign up to join one of the short courses in bulk handling technology or in biomass handling.

Engineers , Procurement Executives or Maintenance Personnel and Designers associated with waste industries and the solids handling sector would benefit from attending this seminar.

We look forward to meeting you there.
