LUNCHTIME WEBINAR - 27th JANUARY 2021

We are pleased to inform you that our next FABIG Lunchtime Webinar will cover 'The work of LASTFIRE - Ensuring a smooth transition to PFAS free firefighting foams through research and testing' and will be given by Niall Ramsden from LASTFIRE on 27th January 2021 from 13.00 GMT.

For additional information and registration, please go to the Events section of the website.

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 now looking for presentations covering topics relevant to the following themes:

  • Robust Principles for Safe Design against Fires & Explosions based on Experience;
  • Fire and Explosion Hazards from Low Carbon Energy Sources (we are also looking for presentations covering related incidents).

As such, please do not hesitate to contact us at fabig@steel-sci.com if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a relevant presentation.

Take care and stay safe,

The FABIG Team
