Doc. 208/17Safety in Storage, Handling and Distribution of Cryogenic Ethylene

There has been a growth in the availability and use of cryogenic ethylene in Europe. As a result of this EIGA has recognised the need to publish guidance addressing safety in the storage, handling and distribution of cryogenic ethylene.

This publication applies to the layout, design and operation of fixed storage and the transportation by road, sea and rail of cryogenic ethylene in bulk form to fixed storages at user's premises.

This EIGA publication is intended as guidance to companies and personnel directly associated with the supply of cryogenic ethylene storage at the user's premises and the distribution of cryogenic ethylene by road, rail and sea transport.
