The Impact of Ageing Process Plants on Safety, New Techniques to Improve Safety

The Annual European AIChE Seminar

The Impact of Ageing Process Plants on Safety, New Techniques to Improve Safety

Excellence in safety is the key to address the increasing complexity of industrial production processes and the increase of rules and regulations both in Europe and internationally. Ageing infrastructure in process manufacturing industries and changes in operating regimes can adversely affect equipment integrity and reliability.
Experts in the field of plant operation will give an overview of new methodologies and techniques to improve process safety in the chemical industry and related sectors.
The 34th European AIChE seminar is an effective platform for interacting and sharing insights with industry leaders and professionals.

Subjects & speakers:

Ageing Operators: Is the best yet to come? Prof. Dr. Jop Groeneweg - Human Factors Specialist Leiden University

Lessons Learned From Incidents - Bypassing of Interlocks Geert Vercruysse - Project Coordinator BASF

Normalization of Deviation Tijs Koerts - Operation Director of the European Process Safety Centre

Ageing and Corrosion Arjan Reinders - Metallurgy and welding engineer at McDermott

The Netherlands / Belgium Section of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers is a regional association of professionals promoting Chemical Engineering and related disciplines, and facilitating exchanges and interaction between all actors of the process industries and related sectors. It proposes each month a lecture dinner meeting or a plant visit and annually, a Colloquium.

AIChE NL/B events address chemical engineering and technology in their industrial context.
