CMO will be presenting two short courses on ‘Biomass Harvesting for Energy’ in Mpumalanga during November. Two international experts in biomass harvesting will be co-presenting the two courses.

The first open course will take place at the training facilities of the Sappi Ngodwana mill on November 16, and the second at Bundu Lodge between Nelspruit and White River on November 17.

Course presenters are:-
Dr Raffaele Spinelli – CNR Ivalsa (Italy). An international expert in biomass harvesting. Adviser to the International Energy Agency.
Dr Natascia Magagnotti – CNR Ivalsa (Italy). An expert in safety and ergonomics of biomass harvesting systems.
