The U.S. EPA issued effluent guidelines and limitations for the Petroleum Refining Industry in November 1982. This report estimates the economic impact of pollution control costs in terms of price changes, effects on profitability potential plant closures unemployment and other secondary effects. A plant by plant analysis of the 212 U.S. Refineries operating in 1976 and expected to discharge aqueous effluents in 1984 was conducted to assess the impacts in the petroleum refining industry.
