British Flame Technical Conference at Foundry International 2005


Meeting Tomorrows Challenges Today


October 20/21st, Victoria, London


Almost every day there seems to bad news regarding escalating energy costs and the impact of global warming on the environment. In the past 2 years there have been record increases in oil, gas and electricity prices and we are regularly seeing extremes in the weather; such as the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina. Industry, especially the energy intensive sectors, is bearing the brunt of these increased costs as well as having to deal with ever more stringent environmental legislation.  So energy and the environmental impacts are key issues that companies have to address on a daily basis, since these costs directly affect the bottom line.

To meet these challenges British Flame is holding a Conference during the Foundry International 2005 exhibition with the theme Improving Costs, Efficiency and the Environment. Our Flame Days are on the October 20th and 21st at the RHS Conference Centre, adjacent to the Exhibition Hall.
Registration to the meeting is open to all attendees of Foundry International 2005.


The Flame Days will be in three specifically themed sessions; one relating to Power Generation followed by two sessions on Industrial Processes that will be particularly relevant to the Foundry Industry.  The programme includes papers from many well-known international companies as well as the UK’s leading Universities carrying out research and development on energy technologies. Papers will be presented by Hamworthy Combustion Technology, Corus, Wünnings (WS Inc), E.ON and Air Products, as well as a keynote presentation from the International Flame Research Foundation. Cardiff, Glamorgan, City, Leeds and Cranfield Universities will represent the academic sector. In addition, there will be a keynote address from Prof. Martin Fry, Vice President of the Energy Institute and Chairman of the Energy Systems Trade Association (ESTA).


We are now accepting registration.  For attending the 2 sessions related to the metal forming industry, being held on Friday 21st October, the registration fee is only £150 VAT or €280.  Attending the entire 2-day event will cost £250 VAT or €294 and includes the Conference Dinner. There are substantial discounts for British Flame members and students.


Further information about the Conference registration, hotel accommodation and the Flame Days programme can be found on British Flame website: www.britishflame.org.uk an/or at the IFRF Technical Events Calandar.


Attending the Flame Days and the Foundry International 2005 exhibition will give delegates the opportunity to participate in a major international event at a very popular venue, to network and spend time in the capital city. It is also the opportunity to bring your partners to enjoy the sites and sounds that London has to offer.
