P2 Application:

Environmental Benefits:

As a result of this project, Valero has been able to reduce the amount of hazardous waste generated (K050 refinery wastes) from tube bundle cleaning alone by 6 tons from 1993 to 1994. Because of the inconsistent nature of accidental spills and tube cleaning, these reductions are difficult to measure. Valero has been able to determine, for instance, that the decanting and isolating capabilities allowed Valero to reduce one stream by 1,100 tons on the first turnaround (disposal would cost approximately $276,000, a $36,000 savings of the cost of the tank construction).
