CGA’s 2020 Specialty Gases Technical and Safety Seminar to Take Place March 10-11

Join CGA for its 2020 Specialty Gases Technical and Safety Seminar March 10 and 11, 2020 in Houston, Texas.

This seminar provides a forum for industry members to meet and discuss issues devoted to specialty gases, while offering attendees an opportunity to share experiences and communicate lessons learned that will further develop personnel, skills, and knowledge.

The event will include presentations on disposal/remediation, packaged gases, specialty gases in cannabis production, reciprocity agreements regarding the shipment of cylinders, and hydrogen for fuel cell standards, as well as other topics.

We will also make a site visit to a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Part B Permitted Facility in Houston that addresses management of electronic corrosive and oxidizing gases, toxic oxidizing and corrosive gases, other industrial gases, and salvage cylinder retest and refurbishment.

The Specialty Gases seminar planning task force is seeking additional presentations for this seminar on topics including:

• Incident and/or near miss presentations
• Emergency response
• Cylinder handling and equipment
• High pressure packages
• Pressure relief devices
• Valves, including RPVs
• Process Safety issues
• Environmental topics
• Any other topic from which others could benefit

If you are interested in making a presentation or have any questions, please contact Kristy Mastromichalis, Specialty Gases Committee Administrator, via email [email protected] or 703-788-2728.

All those who work for CGA member companies and members of affiliated associations are welcome to attend. We look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
