Drum Dryers Symposium: Developing Best Practices for Safer Operations

Drum dryers present the risk of fires and explosions due to combustible dust, as well as conditions that can lead to the generation and accumulation of combustible gas. Join us for this online symposium as we explore best practices for safer operations of drum dryers.  View the agenda here.

The symposium will include presentations from producers and subject matter experts on learnings and experiences, the current state of and new approaches to drum dryer safety. An outcome of the drum dryer symposium will be a proposed drum dryer working group. This working group will collaboratively take a closer look at trends, identify opportunities for improvement, and formulate recommendations. Resources will be created and shared to help support the continuous improvement of dryers and enhancement of the sector’s safety culture.

Hosted by the Wood Pellet Association of Canada in collaboration with the BC Forest Safety Council and media sponsor, Canadian Biomass, the Symposium should be attended by any facility that operates drum dryers.
