Abstract:The 2008 edition of NFPA 30, Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code, has been
out for some time. This presentation will highlight the major changes made since
the 2003 edition and will discuss two issues that will influence the next
edition: controlling fires involving nonmetallic Intermediate Bulk Containers
and the Buncefield UK tank farm fire. The presentation will finish with an
overview of some 'frequently asked questions' related to NFPA 30.
