For the majority of bleach plants in operation today, chlorine dioxide is produced by combining sodium chlorate, methanol, and sulfuric acid. This course discusses the hazards each of these chemicals present as well as the protective measures that should be taken while working with or around them.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Identify the hazardous chemicals used for chlorine dioxide generation and bleaching
  • Describe the safety hazards and guidelines for chlorine dioxide
  • Describe the safety hazards and guidelines for sodium chlorate
  • Describe the safety hazards and guidelines for sulfuric acid
  • Describe the safety hazards and guidelines for methanol
  • Describe Process Safety Management and how it applies to chlorine dioxide processes
  • Identify and describe the purpose of the cluster rule
  • Explain how air and water pollution from chlorine dioxide generation and bleaching processes are controlled

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What hazardous chemicals are used to generate chlorine dioxide?
Most processes used today use methanol, sodium chlorate, and sulfuric acid, which are all hazardous. Chlorine dioxide is also hazardous.

What are the main hazards of chlorine dioxide?
Chlorine dioxide can be a serious threat to respiratory system. Exposure to high concentrations can be fatal.

What are the main hazards of methanol?
Methanol is highly flammable but the flame is almost invisible in daylight. It is highly toxic if it gets absorbed through skin, ingested, or inhaled.

What are the main hazards of sodium chlorate?
Sodium chlorate is only a mild skin irritant, but small quantities (5-10 g) can be fatal if ingested.

What are the main hazards of sulfuric acid?
Sulfuric acid is highly corrosive so it will cause severe chemical burns if it contacts your skin or eyes.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Chlorine dioxide storage poses a significant environmental and safety threat. There are several features needed for the safe storage of chlorine dioxide. The tank should be insulated to keep chlorine dioxide cool. An explosion relief lid on the top of the tank in case an explosion occurs. Sweep air is added to the top of the storage tank to dilute the concentration of vent gas sent to the scrubber. A floating cover in the tank can reduce the amount of ClO2 gas present at the top of the tank. This can allow higher storage concentrations which can reduce tank size, energy for generation and cooling, and the amount of steam needed in the bleach plant.

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
