This second edition of the Protocol for the estimation of VOC emissions from petroleum refineries and gasoline marketing operations contains some new and updated emission factors compared to the first edition (IP, ).. The Protocol provides methods for the estimation of annual emissions of non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) from potential sources in refineries and gasoline.

A new peer-reviewed paper in Environmental Science and Technology suggests that methane emissions from natural gas power plants and oil refineries may be significantly higher than accounted for in current inventories.

The refinery sector consists of facilities that produce gasoline, gasoline blending stocks, naphtha, kerosene, distillate fuel oils, residual fuel oils, lubricants, or asphalt (bitumen) by the distillation of petroleum or the re-distillation, cracking, or reforming of unfinished petroleum derivatives.

GHG process emissions from this sector. Refineries are a major source of atmospheric emissions, which typically include CO, SO2, NOX, particulates, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). There has been an increasing level of attention toward the emissions of VOCs related to their environmental impact as well as their potential to cause adverse effects on human health and the discomfort associated with their unpleasant odor.

Introduction. CO 2 emissions from refineries account for about 4% of the global CO 2 emissions, close to 1 billion metric tons of CO 2 per year ().For Shell, as an oil and gas company, the CO 2 emissions from refineries form a very substantial part of the overall group CO 2 emissions.

Shell has reduced the CO 2 emissions from Shell-operated facilities by approximately 30% compared to. fundamentals of petroleum refining, one must begin with crude oil. The Chemical Constituents of Crude Oil Hundreds of different crude oils (usually identified by geographic origin) are processed, in greater or lesser volumes, in the world’s refineries.

Each crude oil is unique and is a complex mixture of thousands of compounds. Most of the. Distributed energy systems can complement large thermal power plants and large steam generators.

A distributed-energy power-generating system is generally modular, can provide anywhere from several thousand kilowatts (kW) to 50 megawatts (MW) of power, and is located near its customers.

The energy sector is integral to the wellbeing of the entire Iraqi economy and will remain so well into the future. In the current study, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) methodology was used to estimate CO2, CH4, and N2O emissions from oil refining and electricity generation in Iraq for a period exceeding 25 years.

FromIraq experienced two wars and an economic siege. emissions in are estimated at Million tonnes of CO2 (equivalent to MtCE). This is equivalent to nearly 12% of industrial CO2 emissions in the United States. Energy Management Opportunities A large variety of opportunities exist within petroleum refineries to reduce energy.

Interest in productivity improvement of quality fuels from petroleum refinery has been on the rise due to high market demand for these fuels as a result of increasing public concern on health, environment and stricter emission regulations. An estimate of the contribution of mercury to the atmospheric environment from petroleum processed in the United States is constructed from recent data.

The estimate is based on a mass balance approach for mercury in crude oil, in refined products, and in waste streams (air, water, solid waste) from refineries. Although there are insufficient data at present to have a high degree of confidence. The contribution to the total emissions from the UK of these gases from oil refineries has been estimated and is shown in the Table below.
