Abstract

Chemical explosion and fire risk assessment is conducted for a textile mill in Turkey. The study is within the framework of the first implementation of the EC Directive on Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC Directive) (96/61/EC) before legal transposition of the directive. Carrying out risk assessments in industrial facilities is necessary to comply with IPPC. Industrial accidents should also be investigated within the framework of the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents Directive (98/685/EC).
