George Bradley

George Bradley, BSc Hons, Eng Tech, MMES, has 35 years’ experience working in particular with sampling and sampling preparation of solid fuels. His early experience was focused around the logging and processing of coal exploration borehole cores and over the years this developed into a close understanding of all aspects associated with coal and its sample preparation and analysis. His knowledge has taken him to work on contracts in France, Sardinia, Nigeria, Czech Republic and three years of returning visits to Colombia where he provided a laboratory audit service to one of the largest surface mine operations in the world. The recent introduction of SRF and Biofuels into the energy market over the last ten years demanded a transition into a similar understanding of these fuels. This has led to his involvement in Solid Biofuel and Solid Recovered Fuel Standard development committees with CEN and ISO on behalf of BSI where he sits as a principal UK expert. On behalf of ESG George offers consultancy with regard to sampling and analysis requirements for ROC applications and has hosted workshops on their behalf at ESG Bretby to assist in their understanding of Solid Biofuel sampling standard requirements.
