A timely, hands-on guide to environmental issues and regulatorystandards for the petroleum industry
Environmental analysis and testing methods are an integral part ofany current and future refining activities. Today's petroleumrefining industry must be prepared to meet a growing number ofchallenges, both environmental and regulatory.
Environmental Analysis and Technology for the Refining Industryfocuses on the analytical issues inherent in any environmentalmonitoring or cleanup program as they apply to today's petroleumindustry, not only during the refining process, but also duringrecovery operations, transport, storage, and utilization. Designedto help today's industry professionals identify test methods formonitoring and cleanup of petroleum-based pollutants, the bookprovides examples of the application of environmental regulationsto petroleum refining and petroleum products, as well as currentand proposed methods for the mitigation of environmental effectsand waste management.
Part I introduces petroleum technology, refining, and products, andreviews the nomenclature used by refiners, environmentalscientists, and engineers. Part II discusses environmentaltechnology and analysis, and provides information on environmentalregulation and the impact of refining.
