The new second edition of CCPS's Guidelines for Siting and Layout of Facilities has been written to address the many developments in the last decade which have improved how companies survey and select new sites, evaluate acquisitions, or expand their existing facilities. By updating the title, which was formerly Guidelines for Facility Siting and Layout, it has been emphasized that this book focuses not only on siting of buildings and unit operations within a facility, but also on siting of facilities within a community. This guideline addresses issues for those involved in business and project development of hazardous materials and processes, provides guidance for facility layout experts, and provides information for authorities and the public involved in any planning approval consultation process. In addition, this edition notes improvements when modeling toxic release dispersions and explosion overpressure blast effects, when addressing the life cycle and long-term risks of the facility, and in selecting optimal distances between processes and equipment when laying them out within the facility. This paper will provide an overview of the changed and expanded sections throughout the book, including the expanded tables of recommended separation distances in the appendices.
