Process Engineering for Zero Carbon Emissions 9-13 October 23

Process Engineering for Zero Carbon Emissions 9-13 October 23
In this engaging, interactive, in-person five-day course you will be introduced to the fundamentals of process plant and systems engineering.

C-DICE are fully funding five places for C-DICE affiliated postdoctoral researchers, each worth £1850.

Key content will include:

  • Process instrumentation and control engineering for renewable energy applications;
  • Numerical tools for industrial process design and operation;
  • The role of inspection and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) in risk reduction and reliability improvement;
  • An introduction to net-zero process engineering;
  • An introduction to process safety and risk assessment in design;
  • Energy transition to net zero – challenges & opportunities.

Workshops and case studies will enable you to collaborate to determine the key aspects and process systems relevant to renewable energy systems and processes.  Examples of these will include: mechanical, offshore, and renewable engineering, such as subsea production systems, power distribution networks, wind turbines, gas turbines, concentrating solar power plants, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen production.

Completing this course will enable you to:

  • Identify and analyse the concepts and principals of process systems engineering and their potential applications to different engineering problems,
  • Assess and analyse appropriate approaches to the collection and interpretation of data in the application of process systems engineering methods,
  • Evaluate and select appropriate techniques and tools for the design and operation of process systems,
  • Explore the requirements of net-zero emissions on a process plant design and operation.

Course structure:

This in person course takes place over five days with a diverse range of theoretical and practical workshops, case study sessions, tutorials and software training.

Who should attend:

This training is suitable for process, energy, chemical, mechanical engineers and professionals that want to obtain knowledge on applied process engineering, with a focus on net-zero emission requirements.

Dates and location:

This training will take place at Cranfield University campus.  Accommodation costs will be met by negotiation and this training is eligible for the C-DICE travel grant and the C-DICE carers grant.

The training takes place from 9th to 13th October 2023.

How to apply:

You will need to discuss your eligibility for a subsidised place (worth £1850) on this training with Karen Parks, C-DICE Training Manager.  You should complete the expression of interest form using the link below.  Once you have agreed eligibility, you can apply directly via the Cranfield University website.

Caring Support Fund

If you are accepted to join the training but your caring responsibilities could present a barrier to participation, you can apply for the Caring Support Fund to meet additional costs. The purpose of the C-DICE Caring Support Fund is to help postdoctoral researchers with caring responsibilities to offset the additional costs of caring incurred by taking part in a C-DICE activity. More details can be found here.

Travel Fund

C-DICE has established a fund to help postdoctoral researchers attend face-to-face C-DICE events where they may otherwise not have the funds to do so. C-DICE will contribute up to £150 towards the cost of travel and/or an overnight stay. Attendance at this training is eligible for a C-DICE travel grant. More details can be found here.
