The collaboration was also recognised for helping the Corus workforce gain new skills. Corus employees receive training at the GTRC in new areas of safe combustion, which is helping to improve energy efficiency and reduce accident levels.  To date, over two hundred Corus staff have been trained in the basics of gas combustion at the GTRC.

“The training of the workforce is an important part of equipping Corus to respond to the future business challenges of reducing the carbon footprint of steel manufacture”, said Mr Mark Thomas Manager- Electrial Engineering from CSPUK..
