Abstract Process safety issues in the design of chemical, petrochemical and hydrocarbon processing plants are addressed. The goal is to prevent or mitigate the release of flammable or toxic materials leading to fire, explosion or environmental damage. A glossary and extensive list of abbreviations are followed by chapters entitled: introduction; inherently safer plants; plant design; equipment design; materials selection; piping systems; heat transfer fluid systems; thermal insulation; process monitoring and control; documentation; sources of ignition; electrical system hazards; deflagration and detonation; flame arresters; pressure relief systems; effluent disposal systems; fire protection; explosion protection.
