FEx23 is organized by AIDIC, The Italian Association of Chemical Engineering, in collaboration with IND EX®. FEx23, the first edition of the International Conference on Fires and Explosion in the Process Industry, will provide a successful forum on fires and explosions, discussing about protection devices, risk management, theoretical frameworks, and novel findings. The conference provides a unique opportunity to share and gain experience on actual topics and current evolution in the framework of fires and explosions in the process industry, which are events that severely affect the safety of chemical, pharmaceutical, and food processes. Meeting and discussion among international scientists, engineers from both academia and industry will be facilitated to share new trends in research, methodologies and practical approach for the management of fire and explosion risk. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a successful series of events, contributing to the consolidation of a safety culture aiming at a sustainable growth of the enterprise value based on the safeguard of the health of employees and population, the safety of operations and the protection of the environment.
