Problem Samples & Scientific Solutions - exploring investigative techniques for the energy sector 

Join James Hutton Limited, and our James Hutton Institute experts, for a free webinar which will enable a better understanding of various analytical techniques that can deliver invaluable, integrated, accurate results, saving time and money for the energy sector, oil and gas in particular.

This event will appeal to professionals who are keen to develop their understanding of the science and the interpretation behind analytical results. It is an opportunity to ask questions directly to scientists who between them, have over a century of experience in problem solving for industry.

The webinar will provide an overview of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Fourier Transform InfraRed Spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and will include presentations from world leading experts from the James Hutton Institute; Professor Steve Hillier (XRD), Dr Jean Robertson (FTIR) and Evelyne Delbos (SEM).

The webinar will be held from 12pm until 1pm, to include a 30 minute presentation followed by question and answers. Questions can be submitted during the webinar but can also be asked prior to the event at the point of registration, or by emailing Laura Paterson
