The catalog was developed to aid in defining the environmental impacts of U.S. industrial activity. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the catalog. The basic petroleum industry includes companies that treat hydrocarbon streams from the petroleum refining industry, as well as natural gas liquids from the oil and gas production industry. From these raw materials, feedstocks are produced for the organic chemicals industry. The products are pure or mixed chemicals for use as solvents or chemical intermediates. This industry is described by six operations composed of related processes. Four chemical trees, six process flow sheets, and 28 process descriptions characterize the industry. For each process description, available data is presented on input materials, operating parameters, utility requirements, and waste streams. Related information, provided as appendices, includes company, raw material, and product data.
