IFRF can exclusively offer a place at the ‘ECR PACT Training Course’ which will be held from Monday 9th to Friday 13th September 2019 at the PACT facilities in Sheffield, UK.

This course offers training and experience of operating pilot-scale tests at the national UKCCSRC-PACT facilities with instruction on the applications of combustion and carbon capture technology, and combustion plant simulation.  On completion of the course, delegates will be able to design, conduct and analyse industrial experiments using large-scale facilities for new combustion and carbon capture technology development and appreciate and be able to adhere to industrial health and safety practices. It will provide hands-on experience of operating pilot scale tests and knowledge of simulation of advanced carbon capture technologies for the power generation industry. The course will cover different capture technologies and relevant experimental facilities.

PACT is a Preferred Research Partner of IFRF and therefore have allowed us to offer this exciting opportunity to our network.

The cost of this training is £2,750 to non-IFRF members (IFRF members receive a 10% discount). This includes the cost of the full training course and outputs however does not include accommodation or travel.

Ideal candidates for this training would be early career researchers and operators from either industry or academia.

At the end of this course, delegates will have an appreciation and awareness of:

  1. Industrial health and safety practices necessary for carrying out industrial-scale experiments of combustion and carbon capture technologies
  2. The key scientific and engineering principles necessary to design, conduct and analyse industrial combustion experiments using large-scale facilities
  3. How to utilise team working skills to optimise team performance and outcomes in a combustion environment
  4. The principles of simulating combustion and carbon capture processes

Attendees to the training will also produce a blog/social media/case study with follow up from the UKCCSRC Communications Officer.

Please contact us if you would like to register an interest in this training and receive more information. There is only one place left on this training course and therefore it will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
