Runaway Reactions

Runaway Reactions


£199.00 price excludes VAT


Accidents resulting from ‘runaway reactions’ are not rare and they can have devastating consequences. An understanding of their relevant thermodynamics and kinetics is essential to avoid mishap. Measures to prevent and mitigate the effects of runaways with presenting case studies are discussed in the course.

This course will help you better understand all aspects of chemical reaction hazards and managing the runaway reactions.

The course draws upon a range of case studies from the chemical industry sector.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you will understand:

  • the principles and chemistry
  • how to manage runaway reactions
  • learning from case studies.

    Who will benefit

    Anyone who would like to improve their understanding of runaway reactions and learning from past accidents.

    What do you get?
