Half Day Workshop on HAZOP and Sustainable Process Design for Undergraduates
Venue: Wisma IEM, 04- TUSTD Lecture Room, 2nd Floor, 03- CSETD Lecture Room, 2nd Floor
Date & Time: 20 Jan 2018 (9:00 AM - 1:00 PM)
CPD: 4
Closing Date Before: 17-Jan-2018 (Subject to change based on availability of seat)
Organised By Technical Division - Chemical Engineering


A Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study is a formal, systematic and detailed examination of new or existing facilities. It focusses on the process, rather than risks from ‘outside the pipe’, which are better analyzed using other studies such as HIREC/ HAZID/ HER. A HAZOP assesses the hazard potential, causes and consequences on a facility when there are deviations to the operating conditions, or the manner of operations. Existing safeguards are reviewed to determine whether they can eliminate the cause or minimize the consequence.

The course is meant to provide undergraduates with both instruction and workshop sessions so that the participants:
•  Are familiar with the concept of ‘risk’and familiar with the theory behind HAZOP
•  Are familiar with the actual HAZOP workshop process. And Participate in a HAZOP exercise.

At the end of the session, the participants should:
•  Have experience in a HAZOP session.          
•  Understand the outcomes from a HAZOP session

Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.  Within chemical engineering domain, various process integration tools has been widely developed as a mean to address sustainable design problems, ranging from water minimisation, gas  recovery and solvent recycling.  Through process integration tools, the minimum fresh resource and waste flowrates for a process are minimised by exploring the reuse/recycle potential, based on first principle (termed as targeting).The course is meant to address the following:

•   How to identify maximum material recovery potential for a chemical process?
•   How to determine the minimum fresh resources and waste generation for a process?  
•   How to design a recovery system that achieves maximum material recovery?
