ENVID/HAZID studies and workshops (ISO 17776)

Environmental assessments (ENVID)

Vysus' ENVID is a structured examination process used to identify and assess the potential environmental impacts associated with a facility. The primary goal of an ENVID is to proactively recognise and understand environmental concerns early in the planning and design phases of a project. This information is then used to optimise the design and operational strategies to minimise adverse environmental effects.

Key points related to ENVID:

Purpose of ENVID

  1. Early identification: ENVID is conducted in the early stages of a project to identify potential environmental concerns before the facility is built or operational.
  2. Optimisation of design: The outcomes of ENVID are used to optimise the design and operational philosophy of the facility to reduce or mitigate environmental impacts.
  3. Multi-discipline workshop: ENVID is typically conducted as a multi-discipline workshop, involving experts from various fields to ensure a comprehensive examination of environmental aspects.

Process of ENVID

  1. Structured examination: ENVID involves a structured and systematic examination of various environmental aspects associated with the facility.
  2. Identification of concerns: The process aims to identify potential environmental concerns, such as air and water pollution, habitat disruption, resource consumption, etc.
  3. Workshop collaboration: Experts from different disciplines collaborate during the workshop to bring diverse perspectives to the environmental impact assessment.
  4. Data collection: Relevant data is collected and analysed to assess the potential impacts, considering factors such as emissions, waste generation, energy consumption, and other relevant parameters.

Benefits of ENVID

  1. Proactive environmental management: ENVID allows for proactive environmental management by addressing potential issues early in the project lifecycle.
  2. Optimised design: The insights gained from ENVID contribute to designing facilities in a way that minimises environmental impacts.
  3. Cost savings: Early identification and mitigation of environmental concerns can lead to cost savings by avoiding expensive retrofitting or corrective measures later in the project.
  4. Regulatory compliance: By addressing environmental concerns upfront, organisations can ensure compliance with environmental regulations.
  5. Stakeholder engagement: ENVID may involve engaging with stakeholders, including local communities and environmental groups, to gather input and address concerns.

Integration with sustainability practices

  1. Alignment with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): ENVID can contribute to achieving sustainability goals by ensuring that facilities are designed and operated in an environmentally responsible manner.
  2. Lifecycle Assessment (LCA): The outcomes of ENVID may align with the principles of lifecycle assessment, considering the entire lifecycle of a facility from design to decommissioning.
