VOC monitoring systems

Main VOC sources in petroleum industry

Oil installations, petrochemical plants and refineries are industrial sites that manage several raw materials (crude oil, natural gas, chemical intermediates, etc.), thus having great impact on the environment. Industrial processes may generate VOC emissions to the atmosphere, so prevention and control is becoming a very important issue in the petroleum industry.

The main quantity of VOC releases are due to diffuse and fugitive emission sources. The main sources of VOCs from refineries and petrochemicals are fugitive emission from piping, vents, flares, air blowing, waste water system, storage tanks and handling activities, loading and unloading systems.
