This report describes an actual test study to determine from available literature and through engineering analysis the potentially hazardous components in five selected effluents from a typical refinery. These stream characterizations are then to be used in developing a comprehensive sampling and analytical strategy for specific hazardous components in these streams. The streams were selected as typical major contributors to the total refinery emissions. They are representative of the different types of refinery effluents that might be encountered. The following are the five streams studied: fugitive atmospheric emissions from atmospheric crude distillation; aqueous condensate from the atmospheric crude still; effluent water from the API separator; tail gas from the sulfur recovery unit; and atmospheric emissions from the fluid catalytic cracking regenerator.
