Handbook Of Advances In Sustainable Petrochemicals Processes Engineering
Oil and petrochemical industry employs a series of processing steps to purify crude fossil oil before further treatment. Soaring crude oil prices have impacted the global base oil prices and capacity. With the ever-demanding global demand for oil, the need for environmental technologies to recover resources for sustainability becomes critical. Water/ oil separation is essential. Sludge, impurities, contaminants, microorganisms are aimed to be removed and wastewater generated from crude oil washing are problems to be addressed. Used oil, which has tremendous value for recycling, is also the industry’s hot topic towards sustainable development. There is a great deal of interest in the development and deployment of green technologies and the actions required on the part of industry, academia, governments and civil society to drive them forward. For green chemistry, and innovations for sustainable development more generally, there is a need for greater public intervention, including regulatory regimes that are strictly enforced, investment in basic research and education to build human capacity, more outreach programs in collaboration with industry to aid with technology transfer and implementation, and economic incentives for firms that may have the desire but not the financial capacity to make use of these innovations. This Handbook uses the case of green technology in the global chemical sector to better elucidate the challenges of implementation of innovations for sustainable development, to analyse which approaches have been effective, and to provide generalizable knowledge about the types of strategies required to move these technologies from niche applications into widespread use.
