Safe Processes – clean environment – green plants

Because only safe is also clean.

Hardly any other topic currently receives as much attention as environmental protection. In CSE engineering, we consider this field primarily from the perspective of process and plant safety, but also with regard to energy and eco-efficiency. How we combine safe operation with economical and environmentally friendly processes.

We advise you on the prevention of incidents and accidents, carry out environmental analyses and prepare expert reports – whether you operate a biogas plant or a standard chemical plant, a gas pipeline or an ice stadium. Contact us for more information!

Safety from construction to operation

Environmental protection should already be considered during the construction of a plant. Operators of technical plants are increasingly engaging experts for efficiency analyses to evaluate alternative technical solutions. Environmental and eco-efficiency analyses are often required for large projects with high resource consumption, such as the construction of a gas pipeline.

Plants subject to the German “Gefahrstoffverordnung” must be assessed by the plant operator with regard to toxicological risks that may be caused by the emission of hazardous substances. In many cases, hazardous substances also influence the environment far from the event. ERPG, AEGL and other assessment values must not be exceeded during release. This must be documented in a safety report. CSE-Engineering carries out dispersion calculations and prepares the corresponding report.

State of the art – Standards

In the area of environmental protection, the following regulations must be observed if no more detailed methods are used for specific process plants. For this the state of the art must be defined. In each individual case, the application limits of the regulations and the assumptions behind the methods must be examined:

  • VDI 3783 Part 1 und 2: Environmental meteorology – Dispersion of emissions by accidental releases
  • ISO 4126 Part 9 und TA Lärm: NOise emission from safety valves
  • DIN EN ISO 14040: Environmental management – Life cycle assessment – Principles and framework
  • DIN EN ISO 14044: Environmental management – Life cycle assessment – Requirements and guidelines
  • DIN EN ISO 14045: Environmental management – Eco-efficiency assessment of product systems – Principles, requirements and guidelines
