Project Details

Description

Gas filling stations are a potential hazard in Ukraine, as they have the capacity to cause loss of life, infrastructure damage, environmental damage and social disruption if they catch fire. Being able to more accurately quantify and visualize each of these aspects will help to enhance safety by informing of danger.

The proposed project develops a methodology by which the multi-criteria impact of a singular or set of gas filling stations can be quantified and used to inform strategic decisions on the building of new gas filling stations or the temporary or permanent closure of existing ones, as well as the location and building of new facilities (such as high density housing or environmentally sensitive facilities) in the vicinity of gas filling station. This allows active risk control and hence limits potential economic and environmental
damage and social disruption, thus enhancing the economic development and welfare.
