CGA 2022 Safety & Reliability of Industrial Gases, Equipment, and Facilities Seminar

October 18 – 19, 2022
In-Person (location to be announced)

Since the founding of the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) in 1913, it has been our mission to promote the safe manufacture, transportation, storage, transfilling, and disposal of industrial and medical gases and their containers. Consistent with that mission, CGA is proud to present the 2022 Safety & Reliability of Industrial Gases, Equipment, and Facilities Seminar on October 18-19, 2022.

Open to CGA members and members of affiliated associations, this seminar focuses on improving the safe operation of air separation facilities and processes. Industry experts from around the world are expected to present, sharing insights on a range of topics.
