Regional Seminar on Dangerous Goods Management: A Planning and Operation Perspective



Date:

04 December 2015 (December)

Time:

1300 – 17:30

Venue:

P4701, Academic Building 1, City University of Hong Kong, Kowloon Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Language:

English, Putonghua or Cantonese

Abstract:

The management of dangerous goods and chemicals is a significant challenge to cities and companies.  Improper planning, operation or execution of established standards, rules or regulations may lead to catastrophic incidents damaging the environment, and causing harms to the health and safety of the workforce and nearby communities.  In this half day seminar, we will review the various risk management approaches and practices in Hong Kong, China and major corporations in high risk industries.  By sharing the different approaches, the attempt is to seek a wider learning among professionals and managers in government, companies and industries.  Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis.  Registration is free of charge for members of the City University of Hong Kong (CityU), South China Environmental and Safety Management Association (SCESMA) and Hong Kong Institution of Environmental Impact Assessment (HKIEIA). Please send your registration to bhricche@cityu.edu.hk before November 20, 2015.

Nuclear Safety and Risk Seminar on Predicting the Consequences of the Dispersion of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, or Nuclear Agents in the Urban Environment



Date:

13 November 2015 (Friday)

Time:

6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Venue:

Lecture Theatre LT-15 , Academic Building 1, City University of Hong Kong

Speaker:

Prof. Fue-Sang Lien (連復桑)
Department of Mechanical & Mechatronics Engineering
University of Waterloo, Canada
 

Abstract:

The release of chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) agents by terrorists or rogue states in a North American city (densely populated urban centre) and the subsequent exposure, deposition and contamination are emerging threats in an uncertain world. The modeling of the transport, dispersion, deposition and fate of a CBRN agent released in an urban environment is an extremely complex problem that encompasses potentially multiple space and time scales. The availability of high-fidelity, time-dependent models for the prediction of a CBRN agent’s movement and fate in a complex urban environment can provide the strongest technical and scientific foundation for support of Canada’s more broadly based effort at advancing counter-terrorism planning and operational capabilities. The objective of this seminar is to report the progress of developing and validating an integrated, state-of-the-art, high-fidelity multi-scale, multi-physics modeling system for the accurate and efficient prediction of urban flow and dispersion of CBRN (and other toxic) materials discharged into these flows. Development of this proposed multi-scale modeling system will provide the real-time modeling and simulation tool required to predict injuries, casualties and contamination and to make relevant decisions (based on the strongest technical and scientific foundations) in order to minimize the consequences of a CBRN incident in a populated centre.

Backgroud:

Before the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear accident, around 29.2% of Japan's electricity was nuclear-generated. After the accident, all 48 plants were shut down for safety reasons. However, the Japanese government has argued that the shutdown has hurt the economy, forcing Japan to import expensive fossil fuels to make up the electricity shortfall. In order to reduce the fuel cost burden to its economy, by the end of 2014, Sendai nuclear power plants and Takahama nuclear power plants have already been granted licenses for restart However, there are still hurtles to be overcame. The Japanese Government has yet to decide how much electricity should come from nuclear energy. The restart of Japanese nuclear reactors will not only affect the Japanese economy but also countries in the Asia Pacific region. In view of this, top international consultant and scholars have been invited to present their view on the restart programme of Japanese reactors.
