Safety at the heart of the process

7th World Congress of Chemical Engineering 2005

Listed below are safety papers from the 7th World Congress of Chemical Engineering, Glasgow, Scotland, 10-14th July 2005. The five day event, which attracted more than 2000 delegates from over 80 countries, featured contributions from invited experts and incorporated over 800 oral and 1000 poster presentations, as well as a visit from Princess Anne.

The papers are drawn mainly from the safety sessions but also include other papers where safety is a significant issue.
