A century of ammonia synthesis technology – with an emphasis on continual progress in ammonia plant safety – is the theme of AIChE’s 62nd Annual Safety in Ammonia Plants and Related Facilities Symposium.
Organised by AIChE’s Ammonia Safety Committee, the annual symposium is dedicated to improving the safety of plants that manufacture ammonia and related chemicals, such as urea, nitric acid, ammonia nitrate, and methanol. More than 400 attendees – including plant safety personnel, plant managers, and process engineers representing a spectrum of industries – are expected to participate in the symposium, where they will share technological advances and discuss strategies for improving plant safety, maintenance, and management. Company leaders and practitioners will describe how their organizations avoid or manage potential plant accidents and present solutions to a variety of safety engineering problems. Participants will also receive an overview of products available to improve safety measures.
Experts from around the world will discuss the latest advances related to the safe production and use of ammonia, case studies, and lessons learned. Apart from regular sessions, Round table conference is also scheduled on the topics High-Temperature Hydrogen Attack (HTHA), SIS Trip of Process Air on Loss of Process Gas, Chlorine Gas Risks and Alternatives and Industry Incidents which seeks to encourage open exchange and discussion through brief presentations from panelists followed by a question-and-answer session.
