Chemical Processing Webinars: Mark Your Calendar

Jan. 22, 2013
Our free online panel discussions will help make your facility efficient, safe and competitive.

We've put together another great series of webinars focused on serving engineers designing and operating process plants. Each online event takes place at 2 p.m. ET. You can register for as many discussions as you like. Once you're registered, you will receive reminders for the live events as well as heads up later when the discussions are available for on-demand viewing. This link houses all the information >> www.chemicalprocessing.com/cpseries

Attending live events offers an important benefit. You can email in questions for the panelists to answer right during the session. It's your opportunity to ask experts what they think about your particular issues.

Operational Efficiency
Feb. 21, 2013

Getting the most out of assets is imperative. Optimizing performance of equipment during processing and minimizing downtime are crucial. This panel discussion will look at practical ways sites can improve their operational efficiency and improve their bottom line.

Energy Efficiency
March 21, 2013

Energy can account for a substantial portion of a plant's operating costs. Cutting energy consumption can provide substantial savings. This panel discussion explores opportunities to pare energy use.

Cyber Security
April 18, 2013

Recent mandates require chemical facilities to protect against cyber as well as physical intrusions. Identifying and addressing cyber vulnerabilities pose challenges that plants generally haven't faced before. This panel discussion will provide practical pointers for success.

Dust Control
May 16, 2013

Some processing operations invariably generate dust. Such dusts can raise significant safety and environmental issues. This panel discussion will offer real-world guidance on how to effectively contend with dust and reduce the risk of fire and explosion.

Pump Selection
June 20, 2013

Pumps play a crucial role in moving materials through a process. Choosing the wrong pump can lead to performance problems, maintenance headaches and even material degradation. This panel discussion will cover key issues in selecting the right pump.

Water Optimization
July 18, 2013

Many plants face Issues of cost, availability and quality of water. Making the most of water supplies has become an imperative. This panel discussion will delve into practical ways to optimize use of water resources and improve wastewater treatment.

Process Safety
Aug. 15, 2013

Production of chemicals often involves materials and conditions that can pose risks of releasing toxic or flammable compounds, or creating fires and explosions. This panel discussion will provide insights on practical ways to ensure process safety by recognizing and then avoiding or minimizing these risks.

Environmental Compliance/Pollution Control
Sept. 19, 2013

Regulatory mandates require plants to limit the environmental pollutants they release. Failure to comply often leads to substantial penalties. This panel discussion will look at effective ways to control pollution and stay ahead of current regulations.

Dry Materials Handling
Oct. 17, 2013

Solids pose particular challenges because how the materials move depends upon a variety of factors such as particulate shape, size and size distribution, and cohesiveness. This panel discussion will explore how to achieve problem-free handling of solids.

Wireless Technology
Nov. 14, 2013

Wireless devices enable plants to obtain asset information that was previously impractical to gather and offer a variety of opportunities to improve operations and reduce costs. This panel discussion will delve into how to make the most of the technology.

Dust Control
Dec. 5, 2013

Dusts generated during processing and materials handling can raise environmental and safety risks. This panel discussion will look at how to realistically control dusts.

I look forward to moderating all of these events — and fielding questions from our readers. Here's to a prosperous year!
