training

ESIG is organising in cooperation with the Solvents Industry Association (SIA), the UK based solvents industry association, trainings sessions for its members as well as non-members.

Please find below a description of the two training sessions offered:

This first training course is an introductory course designed for newcomers in the solvents sector and other professionals looking to ‘refresh’ their knowledge about solvents. This course is useful to those in commercial or administrative areas.   The course is purposely kept small to encourage interaction and ensure dynamic discussions.

Content of this one-day course:

  • The history of solvents
  • An introduction to petrochemicals and solvents
  • Where solvents come from
  • Types of solvents
  • Choosing the right solvent
  • Solvent end-uses and applications
  • Regulations related to solvents
  • Transport and packaging
  • Product stewardship across the supply chain

This training is designed to support the previous ‘Introduction to the Solvents Industry’ course and is aimed at anyone within the solvents industry who would like to acquire a greater understanding of where solvents are used in the manufacture of everyday items.

Content of the one-day course:

  • Re-cap of ‘Introduction to the Solvents Industry’ course
  • What is a solvent?
  • How are solvents made?
  • Solvents and their key characteristics
  • Solvents applications by industry
  • Interactive session

Even if you haven’t previously attended the ’Introduction to the Solvents Industry’ course then this is a must attend event for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of the wonderful world of solvents and their uses.
