Organic and inorganic compounds of low flash points and wide areas of explosiveness are emitted as a by-product of chemical processes in chemical plants.
The chemical processes are extremely complex, which includes work at high temperatures and pressures with an additional increased risk of explosive atmospheres.

- Compressors and tanks
- Chemical warehouses
- High pressure valves
- Chemical reactors
- Flammable: Various hydrocarbons including Methane, Ethylene, Kerosene, Propane
- Toxic: Hydrogen sulfide, Carbon monoxide, Sulfur dioxide
