Abstract

The process industry, as defined in this paper, covers sevelar industrial sectors, including the chemical industry, the pulp and paper industry, the basic metal industry, and the metal-forming industry. The common element for these sectors is that chemicals are handled on an industrial scale. Companies storing and transporting theses chemicals migth aslo be seen as part of this cluster. The avoidance of fires, explosions and accidental releases of hazardous substances is a self-evident target for those who are involved in developing new processes, in designing process plants or equipment for these, and in operating or maintaining plants in the process industry.
