The report gives process descriptions for petroleum refineries, for synthetic natural gas plants based on liquid hydrocarbon feedstock, and for liquefied natural gas plants. It compares these process descriptions with those for other types of energy conversion plants, such as coal gasification and coal liquefaction. It identifies potential ambient air emissions, liquid effluents, and solid wastes, and discusses monitoring methods and control techniques for these emissions and wastes. It identifies plant siting problems.
