Benzene Fence-Line Monitoring at Refineries Video
Petroleum refineries in the United States are working continuously on reducing their emissions and improving the ambient air quality. Many refineries are already monitoring the air quality in and around their facilities. Now, a new EPA regulation has been introduced which compels petroleum refineries in the United States to measure the concentration of benzene along the fence-line and, in the event of limit values being exceeded, demands that further actions should be taken.
Many refineries still lack a system for fence-line monitoring of benzene emissions, therefore it is high time to make a start. According to the new regulation, the monitoring system needs to be installed and operating by January 30th, 2018, at the very latest.
