Separation Distances Survey for food additives factory

In this separation distance survey, we conducted a site visit of the factory, reviewed the future construction plans of the factory environment, the wind directions and the distance of hazardous materials storage facilities from nearby public receptors. We ran all the data collected in a dedicated model to examine scenarios in which hazardous materials could leak into the environment and cause danger to the envionment.

This separation distance survey was carried out as an additional requirement for the factory's toxic permit, as a result of the establishment of a public receptor near the factory premises. Hazardous materials are defined according to different risk characteristics and are sorted into different categories: explosives, gases, flammable liquids or solids, toxins, radioactive substances, corrosive substances and more. The variety of materials included under the Hazardous materials definition is large, so almost every manufacturing factory can find one or more hazardous materials (which serve as energy sources, raw materials, byproducts, etc. in the factory). According to our survey, the plant was found to meet the requirements of the Ministry of Environmental Protection's separation distance policy. There are no public receptors in existing risk ranges that may meet in the tested risk scenarios. In addition, according to the exception of the "clean area", the factory meets the strict requirements of the Israeli ministry of environment. Also, the risk radius tested according to the model does not exceed the boundaries of the factory area.

We at Sutok Environmental Engineering accompany our customers with dedication and deadlines, and help address various environmental and regulatory challenges.
