IChemE unveils new process safety alliance with Texas A&M Engineering

The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and Texas A&M Engineering have signed an agreement paving the way for a suite of new process safety products and services, officials confirmed on Wednesday.

The memorandum of understanding (MOU) will see both organizations commit to collaboration in process safety education, CPD products and strategic leadership and direction.

The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station is home to the Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center, which houses one of the world's biggest process safety libraries and is regarded as a leader in process safety education.

The MOU was signed Tuesday at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers 2014 Spring Meeting in New Orleans by IChemE chief executive David Brown and Sam Mannan, director of the Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center.

“This is good news for IChemE and good news for Texas A&M, but, importantly, this is good news for chemical and process engineers with an interest in process safety," said Mannan.

The collaboration’s projects and priorities will be announced at IChemE’s Hazards 24 process safety conference next month in Scotland.

“Texas A&M and IChemE are both recognized as international leaders in the provision of process safety products and services," said Brown. "This new agreement will help us to share information more freely and cooperate on a range of new projects."

The induastr and academia collaboration in Process Safety is very encouraging.
The recent incidents of Chemical spill in WV, explosions in fertilizer storage facility in Tx are awakening challeges to chemical industry.
Texas A&M 's Mary Kay O' Conner Process Safety Center well deserves the collaboration of American IChem E to advance the ducational aspects of Process Safety in US Industry.
