Teaching and Training, Engineering and Business Considerations

I'm writing a leachate pumping plant specification, putting a new layer on the oil spill response tool, and writing any number of courses, including a fairly hands-on week on environmental monitoring for the oil industry.

Things are going well with the Indians, we are progressing through an initial phase of optimising what is there already with encouraging results. It may however now be that we are approaching the limits not just of what those particular bits of kit will do, but what that particular technology will do. It might be time to get a little more radical.

The US job is in a peculiar state of limbo, with a signed contract and promises of money on its way into our account which never seems to materialise. I'm glad I asked for upfront payment!
