IFRF’s British Flame Research Committee (BFRC) is holding the British Flame Day on 22 April 2020 looking at ‘Applied Industrial Combustion Needs & Cutting-Edge Research Solutions’.

The programme for this event has now been launched – download your copy here.

This exciting programme includes a balance of industry and academic presentations.

Richard Withnall, Managing Director of Greens Combustion – who are hosting the event at the Arena Business Centre in Poole, Dorset – will open the talks by welcoming all the delegates and giving an overview of the day.

The rest of the morning will allow you to hear from a range of government and industry representatives including:

  • ‘Combustion of Waste: Regulatory Approach to confirming IED Time and Temperature requirements are met using CFD and measurement’ by Roger Kidd, UK Environment Agency
  • ‘Application of CFD combustion modelling in large multi-burner process furnaces and some of the lessons learnt’ by Cliff Rennie and Simon Kretzschmar, Greens Combustion
  • ‘A CFD driven approach to large-scale combustion optimisation: Improving performance and flame stability of a 660MWe anthracite fired boiler’ by Mike Kryjak, RJM International

The afternoon session switches to presenters from academia including:

  • ‘Importance of Sampling and Analysis of Biomass/ Waste Wood Fuels’ by Will Quick, Uniper Energy

  • ‘Biomass Characterisation and Densification for Evaluating Suitability of Non-conventional Biomass Sources for Power Generation’ by Johnson Lau, University of Nottingham

  • ‘Combustion with Net-Zero GHG Emissions’ by Jon Gibbins, University of Sheffield

  • ‘Recent advances in Zero Routine Flaring Initiative’ by Kumar Patchigolla, University of Cranfield

There will also be networking opportunities during the lunch break and after the event BFRC will host a dinner at the Riggers Restaurant and Slipway Bar (which is part of the RNLI Headquarters in Poole).
