A Review on Wastewater Treatment for Petroleum Industries and Refineries

Authors(2) :-Sunil Jayant Kulkarni, Ajaygiri Kamalgiri Goswami

The industrial wastewater treatment is gaining more and more importance with the rapidly increasing need for expansion of existing plants and erection of new plants to cater the needs of chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical products and intermediates. The treatment of the wastewater is key to the sustainable and acceptable industrial growth. Petroleum industries and refineries are important from economic growth point of view. The wastewater from these industries mainly contains oil, organic matter and other compounds. The treatment of this wastewater can be carried out by physical, biological and chemical treatment methods. The current review summarizes studies and investigations carried out for the treatment of petroleum industries and refineries.
