The books we offer fall into two categories. The fist category is to do with the process industries and with process safety, both onshore and offshore. These books are published by Elsevier.
The second category contains books to do with climate change and ‘Net Zero’ programs.
Net Zero Books
Many companies have stated that they are aiming for a Net Zero goal, i.e., they plan to have no greenhouse gas emissions within a certain time frame — the year 2050 is often selected as the target date. This book, Net Zero by 2050: Technology for a Changing Climate, describes the technologies that can be realistically used to help achieve a net zero goal.
The book is scheduled for release in 2022. The chapters will be released in ebook form. Please follow this link to learn more.
The United States Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has proposed a rule that requires publicly -traded companies to report on their greenhouse gas emissions. This book describes the rule, and gives guidance on how to comply with its requirements.
Process Engineering and Safety Management
Process Risk and Reliability Management provides comprehensive and practical guidance for the development and implementation of process safety management (PSM) programs. It covers design and operations. It shows how to improve not only safety but also reliability, environmental performance, quality and profitability. Techniques and principles are illustrated with numerous examples, chemical plants, refineries, transportation, pipelines, and offshore oil and gas.
Plant Design and Operations provides practical guidance to do with the design, operation, and maintenance of process and energy facilities. The book is based on years of hands-on experience gathered during the design and operation of a wide range of facilities in many different types of industry including chemicals, refining, offshore oil and gas, and pipelines. The book helps managers, engineers, operators, and maintenance specialists with highly practical advice and guidance that can be used right away in working situations.
The production of offshore oil and gas creates many hazards. The potential for fires and explosions is always present, weather conditions can be harsh, produced gas can contain the highly toxic hydrogen sulfide (H2S), the rigs and platforms are crowded with equipment and machinery, and - if there is an accident - there are few places to which to escape. Moreover, help is a long way away.
In order to keep these facilities safe, and to protect the environment, companies develop and implement comprehensive Safety Management Systems. This book, Offshore Safety Management, describes how such systems are developed and implemented.
