- around storage tanks or drum storage areas where flammable or toxic liquids are held
Bunds are containments around an area where hazardous liquids are handled, processed or stored. A bund has an impervious wall (or embankment) that surrounds the facility/tanks and an impervious floor within the bunded area. This is because bunds are designed to contain spillages and leaks from liquids and to facilitate clean-up operations. Subsequently, this helps to prevent environmental pollution.
The bund is the main part of a spill containment system. As a result, the whole system (or bunded area) is colloquially referred to as the “bund”.
Furthermore, for a bund to be effective, it must be of sufficient size to contain the volume of any likely leak and be impervious to the liquid.
