Abstract The physics of the build-up of electrical charges is explained in detail. Discharges (sparks) may cause explosions if inflammable gases are present. The main preventive measures against static electricity are explained: earthing (in installations and tankers before unloading), limiting the flow velocity of fluids and foams, limiting the height of fall (fluids) and using antistatic additives.
