PB92228519- EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This volume summarizes results and policy alternatives identified during a 2-year pollution prevention study of Amoco Oil Company's Yorktown Virginia Refinery, jointly sponsored as a cooperative effort of Amoco Corporation and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. A significant finding of the study was that at this facility, current and expected environmental regulatory requirements can be achieved for 20-25% of the cost of current mandated approaches. Major recommendations are: (1) Government and industry need to explore opportunities to produce better environmental results more cost effectively; (2) We need to improve environmental release data collection, analysis, and management; (3) EPA should provide incentives for conducting facility-wide assessments and developing multi-media release reduction strategies; (4) We should encourage additional public/private partnerships on environmental management issues; (5) EPA and the petroleum industry should conduct research on the potential health and ecological effects of VOCs and reformulated gasolines.
PB92228527 - PROJECT SUMMARY
This volume summarized data obtained and analyses conducted during a 2-year pollution prevention study of Amoco Oil Company's Yorktown Virginia Refinery. A multi-media sampling program was used to identify potential pollution sources within the Refinery. Specific engineering projects were proposed to deal with major sources, and the simulated results of implementation were assessed in terms of environmental impact, cost, risk reduction for people living near the facility, liability, etc.
PB92228535 - PROJECT WORKPLAN
This volume provides a detailed workplan for obtaining data and analyzing results for a 2-year pollution prevention study of Amoco Oil Company's Yorktown Virginia Refinery. The goals of the study include (1) a multi-media inventory of all releases entering the environment from the Refinery, (2) development of possible engineering options to reduce the releases, (3) analysis of each option in terms of release reduction potential, impact on human health risk, ecological impact, changes in future liability, etc., and (4) identification of obstacles and incentives for implementation of any of the
