This section provides an overview of the risks to and impacts from selected industrial and energy facilities that are critical for the European Union (EU), such as chemical facilities, the pharmaceutical industry, refineries, oil and gas pipelines, and offshore facilities. It exemplifies the diversity of incident triggers, risk receptors and impacts by using three iconic case studies. It then discusses the gaps and challenges associated with reducing the risks and their impacts. The section ends with a summary of recommendations for the different stakeholder groups. Some of the discussions are equally valid for types of critical industry and infrastructure other than the ones mentioned above.
