Following the success of his online combustion courses during December 2020 and February of this year, independent consultant Neil Simpson is to run a further series of the half day training courses dedicated to the glass industry.

Similar to the previous courses, these will be limited to 12 attendees and be available on a first come first served basis.

In addition, based on recent requests, Mr Simpson has added a new course which will look at industrial decarbonisation.

Along with a look at the glass industry, other example industries will include steel reheat, aluminium reverb, cement, refractory, incineration and process heating including drying.

He explains: “In the early 90’s the first ‘Simpson Burner’ was for an LCV bio-wood gas. Then followed by an oxygen atomised waste oil lance for a soil remediation project.

“One LCV gas was so low that we developed a specific dual fuel solution to achieve the process temperature.”

This new course will be limited to three hours but will include a separate 30minute 1:1 session for specific questions.
