One could be forgiven for being confused over what is meant by “facility siting.” The term was originally used to refer to the process by which a company decided where to locate a new operation (the city, state, etc.) and the evaluation was largely focused on the availability of workers, utilities, and other infrastructure in the area. There have been two editions of the AIChE/CCPS book “Guidelines for Facility Siting and Layout”1 (renamed for the second edition) that discuss site selection and arrangement of equipment and buildings within the site. In addition to industry available guidance documents, many companies have also established internal guidance documents for facility siting to ensure assets are reviewed in a consistent manner.
