a) Yes, fluids flowing through pipes, solids through ducts, air through ductwork or pneumatic conveyors can generate static charge.

b) No: It is vice versa. Non-conductive fluids (e.g., benzene, toluene, naphtha) generate static much more easily and dissipate charge more slowly than conductive liquids.

c) Yes: Non-metallic containers are difficult to ground.
