[William Henby Hedley; Monsanto Research Corporation.; National Environmental Research Center (Research Triangle Park, N.C.). Control Systems Laboratory.]. Nano-Materials as Photocatalysts for Degradation of Environmental Pollutants: Challenges and Possibilities contains both practical and theoretical aspects of environmental management using the processes of photodegradation and various heterogeneous catalysts.

The book's main focus is on the degradation of harmful pollutants, such as petrochemicals, crude oils, dyes, xenobiotic pharmaceutical waste, endocrine disrupting compounds, and other common pollutants.

The Handbook of Air Pollution Prevention and Control provides a concise overview of the latest technologies for managing industrial air pollution in petrochemical, oil and gas, and allied industries.

In the past, economics were the most important criterion in choosing the chemical process route. Modified studies imply that the two of the important planning objectives for a petrochemical industry, environmental risk and the industrial safety involved in the development.

The wastewater produced by the petrochemical industry was found to be contaminated with a variety of toxic pollutants such as heavy metals [5] [6] [7] and using it for crop irrigation led to lower.

Hazardous Effects of Petrochemical Industries: A Review Aksha Sharma 1*, air pollution etc. In the petrochemical industry, potentially harmful substances release dare noxious, foul odor, or combustible [7, 8]. sludge from the treatment processes. The petrochemicalFile Size: KB. Though refineries and petrochemical industries meet society’s energy demands and produce a range of useful chemicals, they can also affect air quality.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified polluted air as the single largest environmental risk, and hence it is necessary to strive for and maintain good air quality. To manage potential health impacts, it is important to implement Cited by: 7.

Industrial Combustion Pollution and Control (Environmental Science & Pollution) Charles E. Baukal Jr. This reference overflows with an abundance of experimental techniques, simulation strategies, and practical applications useful in the control of pollutants generated by combustion processes in the metals, minerals, chemical, petrochemical.

Finally, the processes responsible for emission of pollutants were identified and the emission stream compositions were tabulated. The 11 basic petrochemical raw materials used in producing the great majority of synthetic organic products in the United States are ethylene, benzene, methane, propylene, toluene, xylenes, butylenes, acetylene, more» naphthalene, n-paraffins, and cresols.

Persistent organic pollutants, sometimes known as "forever chemicals" are organic compounds that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes. Because of their persistence, POPs bioaccumulate with potential adverse impacts on human health and the environment.

The effect of POPs on human and environmental health was discussed, with. Environmental pollution has many facets, and the resultant health risks include diseases in almost all organ systems.

Thus, a chapter on air and water pollution control links with chapters on, for instance, diarrheal diseases (chapter 19), respiratory diseases in children and adults (chapters 25 and 35), cancers (chapter 29), neurological disorders (chapter 32), and cardiovascular disease Cited by: Sustainable Process Integration in the Petrochemical Industries: /ch The petrochemical industry has a substantial impact on the environment through the use of large quantities of natural resources (mass and energy) andCited by: 4.

Reducing pollution and the consumption of water and energy are key environmental objectives for the petrochemical industry. Petrochemical production involves complex interdependences between water, energy, and environmental pollutant (WEE) systems, which limit the applicability of conventional methods for evaluating the systems individually.

Solutions to water, air, solid and hazardous wastes problems are summarized. Energy use and conservation are also discussed.

Then, subsequent pollution of different process units at the state petrochemical complex as well as other petrochemical industries along with areas of environ-mental potential pollution have been studied at sec-ond step.

As for municipal wastewater treatment systems, the biological processes need to be installed downstream of the primary treatment. The main difference is that, for municipal wastewater, primary treatment removes only inert materials and grit, which are common to all inflows, while, typical pre-treatments for industrial WWs are:Cited by: 1.

Pollution Control in Oil, Gas and Chemical Plants Alireza Bahadori (auth.) This book covers the fundamental requirements for air, soil and water pollution control in oil and gas refineries, chemical plants, oil terminals, petrochemical plants, and related facilities.

Petrochemical industry is closely linked to the socio-economic aspiration of people and petrochemicals have become now a part of life and providing the basic needs of mankind. Starting from synthetic fiber to polymers, synthetic rubber, explosive, dyes intermediates, pharmaceuticals, pesticides no industrial sector is left where the petrochemicals are not used in some or other forms.

Pollution Systems has a full line of scrubbers and oxidizers specifically designed to remove the particular chemical or residue waste generated by each facil-ity's process.

• Water pollution hazards: Refineries are also potential major contributors to ground water and surface water contamination. Some refineries use deep-injection wells to dispose of wastewater generated inside the plants, and some of these wastes end up in aquifers and groundwater.The petrochemicals industry is very complex and requires considerable knowledge of the individual processes to develop effective pollution control plans and processes.

Information in this small book is intended to provide a base from which one can build. It is not exhaustive in describing the segmen.The NSR program applies to regulated NSR pollutants. In the PSD program, the regulated NSR pollutants include the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) pollutants and some other pollutants including sulfuric acid mist, hydrogen sulfide, etc.

In nonattainment NSR, the regulated NSR pollutants are only the NAAQS pollutants.
