Project SynopsisPerform a PHA for a uranium oxide production process.
PROCESS HAZARDS ANALYSIS (PHA) OF A URANIUM OXIDATION PROCESS
The client operates a metal processing facility that produces a waste stream of depleted uranium, which is then oxidized. Process Engineering Associates, LLC (PROCESS) provided engineers experienced in process safety and risk management who were part of a PHA team for the client. The team performed a PHA of the uranium oxidation process using the What-If methodology. The objective of the PHA was to discover potential accidents (i.e., radiological material releases, explosions, fires, etc.) that could directly impact employees, the public, and/or the environment. Process documented the PHA to reasonably fulfill all pertinent regulatory requirements.
