ENVID (ENVironmental aspects IDentification)

FAQ

Identifying environmental aspects

Definition

The ENVID review enables to identify environmental aspects that come about due to an interaction between the facility and its surroundings in order to plan for, avoid, or mitigate their potential impacts. Hazard and environmental aspects identification is an important step in the design of the facility.
The ENVID method is suitable for all types of industries and can be applied to almost any system. Various methods have also been developed to enable ENVID to cover every phases of a project, including early conceptual phase, options selection, FEED, etc.

Objectives

An ENVID review will identify hazards, environmental aspects and safeguards at an early stage in the design of a facility. This ensures that the design complies with the building regulations, and that the environmental aspects are controlled and kept as low as reasonably practicable.

  • the installations are reviewed by areas, based on Process Flow Diagrams,
  • each area is studied to identify all the environmental aspects,
  • each environmental aspect is challenged in comparison with regulation target, best available technology and Company objectives.
