The management of accidental emissions in socio-technical industrial processes - a challenge of risk governance and management

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific

Abstract

Environmental legislation and voluntary improvement activities have led to a situation where normal, continuous process emissions are nowadays well controlled in industrial operations. More of a challenge today, however, concerns the management of accidental emissions, which may occur in abnormal or unexpected situations. These undesired events can ruin the achievements of positive development of environmental protection, and they may have ecological and societal effects, effects to health, and influence the corporate management and impact industrial production.
