RFA, Pinnacle host webinars on combustible dust hazards

By Renewable Fuels Association | April 16, 2018

The Renewable Fuels Foundation, the education and research arm of the Renewable Fuels Association, has teamed up with the experts at Pinnacle Engineering Inc. to host two webinars—beginning next week—on educating facility personnel about the hazards of combustible dust.

Renewable fuel facilities that process and store bulk products, such as grain–a known combustible dust hazard–are subject to minimum standards to mitigate the risks of fire and explosions. Unlike regulatory standards, these standards are enforced by variety of different entities and by a variety of mechanisms.

This two-part webinar series will provide an educational opportunity to industry stakeholders on applicability, hazards, training, changes to industry standards, and enforcement mechanisms related to combustible dust.

The webinar dates are as follows:

April 18 – Combustible Dust Overview webinar
May 16 – Combustible Dust Standards and Details webinar

Time: 11am-12pm CT.

Space is limited. Register with Missy Ruff at mruff@ethanolrfa.org. The webinar series is free for RFA members and $100 per session for non-members. To learn more, click here.
