Cost of control of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulates emissions from large combustion plants in oil refineries

13 Sep 1984

This report presents the results of a study on the cost of controlling emissions of SO, NOx and particulates from oil refineries by flue gas treatment. Reductions of emissions have been chosen in accordance with those proposed by the European Comission’s Directive “Limitation of the emission of pollutants into the air from large combustion plants”. The report calculates the retrofitting cost for the “average” CONCAWE refinery end the total cost for all EEC refineries. A short review of available emission reduction techniques also included.
