Monitoring of benzene concentration in the atmosphere

12 Jan 2015   Written by

Being conscious about the environment and in order to comply with the environmental legislation Woodison Terminal has taken several steps that enabled us to monitor benzene concentration in the atmosphere and take actions in order to minimize emissions when necessary.

A DOAS-type benzene monitoring system manufactured by Swedish company OPIS was set up at the Terminal’s premises. The system records atmospheric values on a minute by minute basis which enables continuous control over benzene emissions at the Terminal. We have also set up a weather station which continuously records wind speed and direction. This data is taken into account during operational processes and it helps making the company’s activities more environmentally friendly.
