Abstract:The handbook is designed to be suitable for use in short courses, training sessions, and as a supplementary text in university-based engineering design courses. The focus of this handbook is the refining and chemical processing industries. These industries are responsible for nearly half of the releases and transfers reported in the Toxic Chemical Release Inventory (TRI) in the state of Illinois (TRI90, 1993). In Illinois, these industries are responsible for 31 % ofTRIreported environmental releases, 76% of transfers to publicly-owned treatment works, and 34% of transfers to other off-site locations. In addition, 24% of Illinois facilities that report in the TRI belong to this group of industries.
