This study investigated the role played by green thermal analysis technology in promoting the use of resources, preventing pollution, reducing energy consumption and protecting the environment. The chemical tert-butyl peroxybenzoate (TBPB) has been widely employed in the petrifaction industries as an initiator of polymerization formation agent. This study established the thermokinetic parameters and thermal explosion hazard for a reactor containing TBPB via differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). To simulate thermokinetic parameters, a 5-ton barrel reactor of liquid thermal explosion model was created in this study. The approach was to develop a precise and effective procedure on thermal decomposition, runaway, and thermal hazard properties, such as activation energy (E a), control temperature (CT), critical temperature (TCR), emergency temperature (ET), heat of decomposition (∆H d), self-accelerating decomposition temperature (SADT), time to conversion limit (TCL), total energy release (TER), time to maximum rate under isothermal condition (TMR iso), etc. for a reactor containing TBPB. Experimental results established the features of thermal decomposition and huge size explosion hazard of TBPB that could be executed as a reduction of energy potential and storage conditions in view of loss prevention.
