Design, Development & Scale-Up of Safe Chemical Processes and Operations

View Full Event Details

Developing safe processes is of paramount importance to any chemical company. Exothermic chemical reactions in batch and semi-batch processes can result in serious injury to people and plant if they get out of control. Results of thermal runaways include violent loss of containment, possibly explosion, and the release of flammable or toxic materials to the environment.

This seminar is designed to enhance the awareness of chemists and engineers regarding hazard issues. It will consider hazard control of new chemical processes throughout their development cycle: from early development through to full-scale production. Hazards can often be eliminated by appropriate choice of reagent or synthetic route at the R&D stage. Where this is not possible, techniques exist to quantify the hazards so that robust engineering solutions can be applied in production.
