Kermanshah Refinery Leading Environmentally

Kermanshah Oil Refinery has taken several measures to reduce its environmental pollutants and become one of the leading Iranian refineries for promoting environmentally sound practices in recent years, the secretary-general of Oil Refining Industry Cooperative Association said.

“The installation of online monitoring systems on the output of industrial wastewater treatment system and furnace chimneys, expansion of green areas around the refinery to more than 21 hectares and using treated industrial wastewater for irrigating the green areas are among the most important measures to decrease pollution at the refinery,” ILNA also quoted Nasser Ashouri as saying.

“Standardizing the output of furnace chimneys, double sealing the roof of tanks to reduce the evaporation of volatile hydrocarbons and establishing the environmental management system of ISO 14001: 2015 have been other measures undertaken to reduce environmental pollutants,” he said.

The refinery also has programs underway, including for changing furnace burners and the construction of a vacuum distillation unit, as well as studies on the construction of more quality units and development of production capacity.

“New units to produce quality products require $300 million,” Ashouri said, adding that the refinery seeks to produce high-octane gasoline, low sulfur fuel oil, and gas oil with sulfur below 50 ppm, all of which can help preserve the environment.

Kermanshah’s refinery produces 100,000 liters of liquid petroleum gas, 750,000 liters of gasoline, 437,000 liters of kerosene and 750,000 liters of fuel oil per day. The daily operational capacity of the refinery is 25,000 barrels.

Located in western Iran, Kermanshah Oil Refinery is the second oldest oil refining complex in the country after Abadan Refinery.
