Environmental Benefits:

Total benzene emissions to air from wastewater have been reduced by about 100 tons per year. Most of this reduction is due to recycling of benzene containing streams before they enter wastewater. Furthermore, 140 tons per year of other hydrocarbons (toluene, xylene, etc.) are recycled along with this benzene. Since most streams are recycled through a closed-loop process, benzene exposure potential to our plant personnel is greatly reduced.
