The Land Treatability of Petroleum Refinery Waste Constituents

  • John R. Ryan
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 45)


The degradation and immobilization of refinery waste constituents within land treatment systems was evaluated through a series of laboratory and modeling studies. The study was completed for the American Petroleum Institute (API) and evaluated two soil types, three waste-loading rates, and two rainfall rates. The waste used was a composite of API separator sludge, DAF float, and emulsion solid slop oil. The principal constituents of interest were the volatile aromatics and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).
