The Energy and Fuels from Waste course is a 3 module training programme developed in 2010 in partnership with 25 leading companies in the sector, LEC resident company Stopford Projects Ltd and Lancaster University. This year, in collaboration with Envirofly Ltd, an environmental consultancy specialising in the West African market, the course is being condensed to a 3 day course and delivered internationally to West Africa, UAE and China.
Head of Enterprise and Business Partnerships, Dr Ruth Alcock explains, "Our aim is to work collaboratively to address some of the unique waste management challenges faced in those countries where perhaps waste management practices are less well developed than they are in the UK."
