Cranfield University, College Road, Cranfield, MK43 0AL, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

A three day (with the option to attend the first two days only) practical thermal conversion masterclass course for those working in the field of advanced thermal conversion. This course will be delivered in collaboration with ERDF BioThermal Renewable Energy Demonstrator Project for SMEs in the East of England.

The course provides an overview of the science and operational principles of gasification, including practical experiments with pilot scale facilities alongside data analysis and an overview of business considerations. Participants will gain hands-on training with exposure on new horizons in thermal conversion scenario’s to meet the growing pressure for low carbon sources of energy. Several benefits will be explored including the reduction in waste, comparison with alternative approaches and improved use of heat or gas.

This course will run with delegate numbers limited to ten participants due to health and safety priorities, therefore we encourage you to apply early to ensure a place.

Course Objectives

On successful completion of this short course you will have experienced a series of practical activities alongside simulation development and group discussion, to achieve the following objectives:

  • Understanding fundamental gasification principles and how to apply them to a process plant
  • Understanding gasification strategies using a problem-solving process
  • Gaining knowledge of the range of techniques for managing gasification plant performance
  • Evaluating and undertaking performance reviews of processes configurations objectively
  • Recognising gasification problems and how to troubleshoot and improve system performance
  • Learn how to run a gasification and gaining the ability model and communicate this performance within a team.

Course Topics

  • Gasification concepts including fundamentals
  • Predictive tools
  • Practical awareness of technical tools.

Who Should Attend

The course provides an understanding of gasification for engineers, scientists, technical managers/operators and postgraduate researchers working in the field of advanced thermal conversions. It will also be valuable to individuals and company representatives involved in technical services and troubleshooting departments. Delegates from specific industries that will benefit mostly from this course include those from the power utilities, original equipment manufacturers, waste industries, consultancies, renewable companies, as well as small and medium enterprises that provide services to these industries. In addition, the material covered and the learning objectives are designed to benefit researchers and postgraduate students in the physical sciences and engineering disciplines.

Course Delivery

A combination of practical, non-practical lectures and process predictive assessments.

This course will run with delegate numbers limited to ten participants due to health and safety priorities, therefore we encourage you to apply early to ensure a place.

Key Information

The non-practical components of the course will be based in the Cranfield Management Development Centre (CMDC) on the Cranfield campus with the practical work taking place in the nearby energy technology facilities. Non-residential fees for the course include tuition charges, lecture notes, use of pilot scale facilities and materials, refreshments, lunches and course dinner:

  • Full 3 day course - £2000
  • Day 1 & 2 course - £1500
