More on dust explosions...

From Sicco Dwars at Shell Global Solutions: (and he is quite correct, too...which leads me to again ask what it will take to get the US government to act to prevent this kind of disaster...) Walt, Reading your blog on dust explosions, and a claim of being Control"GLOBAL", targeted at global audience, some recognition for the European ATEX directive, now EU law, would be justified here I think. Yes, Europeans have a tendency to over-regulate, but, IMHO, thanks to ATEX in Europe the likelihood for disasters as with this US sugar plant is nowadays significantly lower.
