Here’s what some of the delegates from last years courses said:
Port and Terminal Operations for Bulk Cargoes
“….a very useful approach to a number of questions about bulk cargoes”; Duarte Bastos, Silopor
Overview of Particulate Handling Technology
“…….very informative and I would recommend this course to anyone in the industry”; Chris Jones, Kemutec Group Inc. – A part of the Schenck Process Group
Pneumatic Conveying of Bulk Materials
“I appreciated the practical exercises to get a hands on feel of the parameters important for calculations and layout of a pneumatic conveying system”; Dr Tom Simons, BASF
