Industrial Pollution Management

Petroleum Refinery Air Emission Management (IPM 101)

Hydrocarbon from crude petroleum and refined products emitted into the atmosphere are generally not toxic; but, to varying extents, they do take part in the formation of photochemical oxidants. Hence, hydrocarbons are perceived as a pollution hazard and it is this environmental concern which has led to recent and more pervasive restrictions on the emission of hydrocarbons in the atmosphere. This course describes good practices and strategies that can be used to manage emission of air pollutants in petroleum refineries.

Who Benefits
This course is designed for individuals with a degree in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Environmental Engineering who want to upgrade their knowledge in air emission pollution management. Upper management personnel can also benefit from this course through exposure to different regulations that is enforced in order to manage and control air emission in refineries.
