Oil Pollution and its Environmental Impact in the Arabian Gulf Region

Positioned in the richest oil zone on the earth, the Arabian Gulf represents a under pressure environment with scarce released facts and environmental experiences. The oil-related actions reason major damages to diversified atmosphere elements reminiscent of coral reefs, algal mats, mangrove and different habitats.

That this is only moderate is the result of there having been major reductions in hydrocarbon release from refineries during the opening years of the 21st Century. com 51 Volatile organic compounds (VOC) and ozone Atmospheric Pollution the release of VOC by Shell summed over all of the countries in which that company has refining activity has halved since the year 2000.

3 MJ Ÿ | 1 MJ of electricity allowing for turbine efficiency. 6 MJ An emission of 10 mg m-3 of flue gas is therefore equivalent to: 36 mg per kWh In parts of the US ‘interpollutant trading’ takes place, and relative figures for different pollutant are very important in such trading. Few values for this factor when PM10 from pollution control practice are available as credits trading between PM10 and sulphur dioxide is not yet widespread. 0. Solid fuels and heavy fuel oil when used to generate electrical power all give PM10 releases of the order of magnitude given in the calculation.

Measurement in the field. 5 Concluding remarks The primary subject of this chapter has been VOC, and its role in ozone formation has led to a discussion of that as well as of PAN. , Chen B. and Kan H. com 56 Carbon monoxide Atmospheric Pollution 6. 1. Introduction There are both natural (forest fires, volcanic activity) and anthropogenic (combustion processes) sources of carbon monoxide, and atmospheric concentrations of this highly toxic gas are considerable. m. , so clearly the anthropogenic is dominating.
