Reactivity Screening Made Easy
During the past decade, large efforts were expanded by the US chemical and petrochemical industries to implement and maintain effective process safety management (PSM) and responsible care programs. Despite these large investments, incidents continue to occur at an alarming frequency. Many executives of leading companies are trying to understand why. This paper focuses on incidents caused by runaway reactions and provides guidance on how to improve the ?Quality? of managing chemical reactions hazards through a combination of screening and experimental tools.
