RJM International is an award-winning, specialist provider of a range of innovative and technologically-sophisticated products and services aimed at the power, industrial plant, biomass and Waste to Energy sectors.
Combining consultancy and engineering, RJM’s unique offer ensures that plant operators have access to an end-to-end solution that is also guaranteed.
of global plant improvements
RJM has been providing emissions reduction and combustion efficiency improvements to thermal energy providers worldwide for more than forty years and has successfully completed over 60,000MW of upgrade projects.
From its origins as a business offering R&D consulting services to the thermal-fired power generation sector in the USA, it is today a global provider of a range of products and services that is enabling the thermal-fuel fired sector to transition successfully to lower carbon, low emission generation.
Some of our 2020 projects include:
Reducing harmful emissions at one of Europe’s most polluting power stations, as part of an EU-funded consortium to improve air quality in Kosovo;
Improving performance at a number of biomass and Energy from Waste sites in the UK to enhance reliability, reduce emissions, maximise MW output and enable them to operate on a wider fuel diet;
Devising a SUFA system to achieve a significant step change reduction in NOx levels, down to 200mg/Nm³ at a power station in Northern Ireland;
Researching and writing a report for a power plant in Chile to facilitate the introduction of co-firing with blue hydrogen to deliver low carbon energy.

RJM is based in Winchester, UK and the company has regional offices in Singapore and the USA, as well as a network of agents in the Middle East, Africa, India and Asia-Pacific.
RJM’s Core Values were developed following an in-depth consultative process involving all members of staff and have been embedded as the foundation of RJM’s culture.
They are applied across all aspects of the business, both internally with staff and externally with customers, suppliers and other key third-party relationships.
We are helping to transform the thermal power generation sector to deliver low-emission, low-carbon energy worldwide.
Today, RJM’s primary focus involves working in partnership with some of the world’s leading utility supply companies, other large combustion plants as well as biomass and Waste to Energy facilities. RJM helps them to operate as efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible, whilst meeting the latest emissions regulations relating to SOx, NOx, particulates and carbon.
The best people
RJM employs world-leading combustion engineers and CFD experts. Together, they have resolved some of the most complex combustion, emissions and operational challenges, often developing practical, cost-effective solutions that competitors have been unable to match.
I have loved my time at the company so far and would highly recommend doing a placement year at RJM.

BSc Chem. E (Hons)
Combustion, emissions and performance improvement expert with over 35 years’ experience in the energy sector managing complex multi-million pound projects.
John Goldring is a highly skilled energy sector professional with over 35 years of technical, commercial and company management experience, providing combustion engineering expertise to the power generation industry worldwide. He has a wide-ranging track record of success in the development and global commercialisation of innovative, ultra-low emissions technologies, products and services for the efficient combustion of coal, gas, oil, biomass and WtE fuels.
John has been Managing Director of RJM International since 2005 and is responsible for managing the business and leading on new revenue generation from utilities, biomass and WtE plants as well as other major industrial customers, worldwide.
In 2000 John established the European office of RJM Corporation to bring the RJM commercial product line and service offer to the global market outside the USA. In 2005 he completed the management buyout of the European arm of RJM Corporation, enabling greater investment into the UK-based business. Prior to joining RJM, John was Managing Director of Todd Combustion (latterly John Zinc) and held senior roles at Credfeld Camtorc.
John presents regularly at energy conferences and is a frequent contributor to international technical publications focusing on combustion improvement, emissions reduction and the development and integration of new, low carbon fuels.
A pioneer developer of unique CFD models to inform the design of ultra-low NOx burner technologies. Holder of numerous patents. Significant theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience in R&D settings, test facilities, field analysis of combustion problems and equipment start-ups.
Larry has over 40 years’ power and process industry experience and over that time has designed and engineered numerous new combustion products and systems. He has also developed unique analysis methodologies and invented state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) models.With a wide range of practical expertise and theoretical knowledge, Larry’s areas of expertise, as well as CFD, include combustion science across a number of large combustion applications including refinery furnaces, flares and utility boilers. His multiple fuels experience spans gas, refinery fuels, oil, coals, and biomass.
Larry has been working with RJM since 2008 with a focus on CFD work and prior to that held senior engineering roles at John Zinc and in the United States Navy.
Energy engineering and commercial professional, with over a decade of experience managing multi-million pound EPC retrofit contracts on thermal power plants in the UK and Europe.
Steve joined RJM in 2007 as a Project Engineer and was appointed Project Manager in 2010. As Head of Projects since 2018, Steve is responsible for the successful management of all RJM’s projects outside Asia-Pacific. Today this includes projects running in the UK, Northern Ireland and mainland Europe, ranging from the upgrade (NOx reduction) of two lignite-fired units in Kosovo to performance optimisation programmes for a number of biomass plants in the UK.
Steve was a co-inventor of a unique NOx-reducing Separated Under Fire Air (SUFA) system suitable for T-fired coal boiler applications. This patented technology has now been successfully installed at EPK Kilroot in Northern Ireland.
Steve was also involved in the re-design of a new RJM coal burner for Engie’s power plant at Rugeley. This unit delivered such good performance that it was IED compliant without the need for secondary NOx reduction measures, yielding less than 200mg/Nm3. On this project, he also was responsible for all the commercial and contractual negotiations and managed the project from start to finish.
