Pollution Control in Oil, Gas and Chemical Plants
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. In this concise volume, Dr. Bahadori elucidates design and operational considerations relevant to critical systems such as the waste water treatment units, solid waste disposal, and waste water sewer treatment as well as engineering/technological methods related to soil and air pollutions control. Engineers and technical managers in a range of industries will benefit from detail on a diverse list of topics.
Covers a diverse list of effluent management strategies important to practitioners, ranging from waste water gathering systems and oil/suspended solids removal to chemical flocculation units, biological treatment, and sludge handling and treatment Provides numerous step-by-step tutorials that orient both entry level and veteran engineers to the essentials of waste-treatment systems in petroleum and chemical industries Includes a comprehensive glossary providing readers with an excellent guide to the variety of terminologies applicable to waste treatment and disposal technology Presents the most up-to-date understanding of waste management problems based on industry best practices and current research data
