Nomination Instructions

The awards will be granted to the teams or individuals who apply some of the following concepts of inherent safety in their designs:

  1. Design the plant for easier and effective maintainability
  2. Design the plant with less waste
  3. Design the plant with special features that demonstrate inherent safety
  4. Include design concepts regarding the entire life cycle

The school must have a student chapter of AIChE. The report will need a separate section titled "inherent safety" to describe the design features that represent inherent safety. The Process Safety Division will evaluate all of the designs that are submitted for the AIChE Student Design Competition using the inherent safety criteria mentioned above.

The AIChE designs are submitted to AIChE Awards Administrator, 120 Wall Street, 23rd Floor, New York, NY 10005; Ph./Fax: 646-495-1384/646-495-1503.
