This development document presents the findings of an extensive study of the Petroleum Refining Industry for the purposes of developing effluent limitation guidelines, standards of performance, and pretreatment standards for the industry to implement Sections 304, 306 and 307 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1972, (PL 92-500). Guidelines and standards were developed for the overall petroleum refining industry, which was divided into five subcategories. Effluent limitation guidelines contained herein set forth the degree of reduction of pollutants in effluents that is attainable through the application of best practicable control technology currently available (BPCTCA), and the degree of reduction attainable through the application of best available technology economically achievable (BATEA) by existing point sources for July 1, 1977, and July 1, 1983, respectively. Annual costs for the petroleum refining industry for achieving BPCTCA Control by 1977 and 1980 are estimated. Supporting data and rationale for the development of proposed effluent limitation guidelines and standards of performance are contained in this development document. Processes, control technology, and costs are also discussed.
