Lunchtime Webinar | The work of LASTFIRE - Ensuring a smooth transition to PFAS free firefighting foams through research and testing - Niall Ramsden, LASTFIREAdd to Calendar
|TITLE:||The work of LASTFIRE - Ensuring a smooth transition to PFAS free firefighting foams through research and testing|
|SPEAKER:||Niall Ramsden, LASTFIRE|
|DURATION:||1 hour (45 min + Q&A)|
|TIME:||13.00 to 14.00 (GMT)|
|ABSTRACT:||LASTFIRE is an industry group of international oil and fuel storage companies working together to develop best practice in storage tank fire hazard management. LASTFIRE has recognised the need to transition from fluorosurfactant based firefighting foams, which have been the industry standard for so long, and is at the forefront of developing guidance and data to enable foam users to make this transition in a cost-effective and sustainable manner. The work of LASTFIRE has included carrying out the most extensive series of large-scale hydrocarbon fire testing of foams for more than 40 years as well as the development of best practice assurance procedures in a format suitable for self-assessment.|
This presentation will describe the work to date, the remaining gaps in knowledge and the plans to complete the necessary work. Mention will also be made of LASTFIRE’s recent production of a training video related to crude oil boilovers.
FABIG WEBINAR SERIES
We will be organising lunchtime webinars every two weeks whilst working life remains disrupted by measures to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. Such measures either prohibit or make inadvisable large meetings such as our Technical Meetings. We are still looking for presentations for our series of lunchtime Webinars and as such, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a presentation at one of the forthcoming FABIG Lunchtime Webinars.
Booking for this event has now closed.
