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 petroleum refining industry is involved primarily in the conversion of crude oil into more than 2500 products including liquefied petroleum gas, gasoline, kerosene, aviation fuel, diesel fuel, a variety of fuel oils, lubricating oils, and feedstocks for the petrochemical industry. The industry is discussed in five segments: crude separation, light hydrocarbon processing, middle distillate processing, residual hydrocarbon processing, and auxiliary processes. Four process flow sheets and 32 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, product, and feedstock data. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
