Recent studies covering plants in the U.S., UK and Germany show that controlling static electricity build-up is the key to preventing combustible cloud explosions. In the U.S. alone during the period 1980 to 2005 The Chemical Safety Board reported 281 explosions caused by ignitable combustible dust atmospheres.
