Abstract
As part of the Amoco/USEPA Pollution Prevention Project, on air quality evaluation of Amoco Oil Company's Yorktown Virginia Refinery was conducted. The document defines baseline air quality in terms of air emissions and ambient air quality. The baseline was used to evaluate potential impact of different pollution prevention options. Three objects of the study were to: (1) Quantify current air emissions from the facility; (2) Quantify ambient air quality impacts of these emissions; and (3) identify benefits of implementing pollution prevention alternatives or additional control measures. Extensive computer modeling of the airshed immediately around the Refinery was conducted using the ISC Short Term model with approximately 80 on-site emission sources and 8700 hourly meteorological data points.
