The handling and storage of combustible organic ingredients like flour or sugar, and flammable products like ethanol, generate dangerously high levels of static electricity.
According to a report published by the IChemE 36% of industrial fires occur in bakeries. As more attention is paid to potential dust cloud explosion hazards and flammable hazards by government regulators, (ATEX & OSHA) the food and beverage industry is increasingly turning its attention to managing the risks associated with static electricity in potentially flammable and explosive atmospheres.
