Question

Which incident reminded us about dust explosions and that process safety is not just about chemical facilities? (Select the best answer and then click 'Submit.') Imperial Sugar Deepwater Horizon Bhopal Flixborough

Answer

Class, the Imperial Sugar incident serves as a stark reminder that process safety is not limited to chemical facilities alone. In 2008, a disastrous dust explosion occurred at the Imperial Sugar refinery in Georgia, USA, tragically causing the loss of 14 lives, and leaving multiple workers with injuries. This tragedy was a wake-up call for industries outside of traditional chemical process plants to better comprehend and manage dust explosion risks. While there have been other incidents, like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, the Bhopal gas leak in 1984, and the Flixborough chemical plant explosion in 1974, none of them were strictly related to dust explosions or the need for process safety beyond the chemical industry.
