A large European integrating project on early recognition, monitoring and integrated management of risks related to emerging and new technologies (iNTeg-Risk) has recently started. Among several research activities, a specific task has been devoted to the interaction of natural hazards and technology (Na-Tech risks). The main goal of this task is to improve the resilience of industrial facilities to technological accidents caused or aggravated by natural hazards. In this context, the authors have analysed Na-Tech accidents due to impact of earthquakes, floods and lightning on chemical and process plants, aiming at giving a general framework for the assessment of industrial risks.

Abstract

A large European integrating project on early recognition, monitoring and integrated management of risks related to emerging and new technologies (iNTeg-Risk) has recently started. Among several research activities, a specific task has been devoted to the interaction of natural hazards and technology (Na-Tech risks). The main goal of this task is to improve the resilience of industrial facilities to technological accidents caused or aggravated by natural hazards. In this context, the authors have analysed Na-Tech accidents due to impact of earthquakes, floods and lightning on chemical and process plants, aiming at giving a general framework for the assessment of industrial risks.
