See what 2017 course attendees are saying about the program:

"The course was extremely interesting. It allowed me to get familiarized with the new developments in emissions reduction domain. I had the opportunity to enrich my network with different professionals in the aluminum industry and emissions control field."

"Very interesting and informative course! Allows to improve and expand knowledge."

In addition to lectures, this course features interactive discussion sessions where attendees have a chance to problem solve and present group work with all participants.

This four-day course is planned to be interactive in nature, comprised of lectures with open group discussions, supplier participation, and a smelter visit. It will cover the control of potline emissions from primary aluminum smelters, focusing on scrubber and potroom fugitive emissions; fundamentals, scrubber design and operation (both dry and SO2 wet scrubbing); pot ventilation and fugitive emissions; best practices; and upcoming advancements in technology. Emissions focused in this course include fluorides, SO2, and particulates.

Individual lectures will be centered on the following topical areas:
  • Overview of emissions
  • Emission fundamentals—fluoride, SO2, particulates
  • Pot ventilation and scrubber technologies
  • Dry scrubber design
  • Dry scrubber operation (focus on injector reactors and baghouse design)
  • SO2 wet scrubber operation and control
  • Practical tips to evaluate scrubber technology bidding stage
  • Advancements and developments in potline scrubbing, including gas cooling options
  • Management of potroom fugitive emissions
  • Interactive discussions and workgroups
  • Smelter field visit

This course features lectures presented by some of the leading experts in the field. Above, Stephan Broek presents to the 2017 course attendees.
