Safety in storage, handling and distribution of cryogenic ethylene

Because of the growth in the availability and use of cryogenic ethylene in Europe, the European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) has recognised the need to publish guidance addressing safety in  the  storage, handling and distribution of  cryogenic ethylene.

This EIGA publication is intended as guidance to companies directly associated with the installation of cryogenic ethylene storage at the user's premises and the distribution of cryogenic ethylene by road, rail and sea transport.

This publication applies to the layout, design and operation of fixed storages and the transportation of cryogenic ethylene in bulk form by tankers or tank containers, by  road, sea and rail, to fixed storages  at user's premises.
Small transportable cryogenic vessels of less than 1000 litres are excluded from the scope of this publication due to the requirements for a vent system.
