Al Reich - Chemical Engineer, Barr Engineering
Corey Mead - Vice President, Barr Engineering

Course Length

4 Hours

Course Description

This 4-hour course will provide an overview of environmental compliance and permitting requirements for liquid fuels terminals. The goal of this course is to provide environmental professionals, terminal operators or managers, and other interested parties a basic understanding of the environmental compliance programs applicable to fuels terminals. Topics include:

  • Types of facilities and operations
  • Air emission units and applicable regulations
  • Water pollution sources and applicable regulatory programs
  • Waste generating activities and regulatory requirements
  • Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA)
  • Oil Pollution Prevention requirements such as facility response and spill prevention plans
  • Storage tank regulations

This course does not include detailed applicability evaluations, pipeline operation requirements, or gasoline dispensing (gas station) operations.

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS): Latest Developments in Analysis, Risk Evaluation, Remediation, and Regulations

View course page →

Instructor(s) / Participants

Mitch Olson Ph.D, P.E. - Environmental Engineer, Trihydro Corporation
Andrew Pawlisz - Program Specialist/Senior Toxicologist, Trihydro Corporation
Fritz Krembs - Senior Engieer/Geologist, Trihydro Corporation

Course Length

4 Hours

Course Description

Should we be concerned about PFAS? PFAS compounds are a large group of persistent environmental contaminants used for firefighting, mist suppression, and industrial processes. These constituents have become a concern due to the increased frequency of detections in public water supplies, surface water, human receptors, and wildlife throughout the United States and globally. Combined with their persistence, widespread mobility, and ubiquitous presence, concerns with the potential for toxicity to the human health and the environment, have made PFAS a current issue of considerable interest.
This workshop is intended for refinery environmental professionals seeking to understand PFAS as an issue of emerging concern and gather latest information. The presentation topics include identity, history, uses, sources, fate and transport, analytical and field methods, levels in human receptors and environment, toxicology and risk assessment, regulations, remediation, practical case studies, legal, and next steps. Following the presentations, a panel comprised of industry, government, academic, laboratory, vendor, and consultancy experts will engage the attendees in a discussion on any of the deliberated topics. The workshop will conclude with a synopsis of the presentations, addressing the question posed at the beginning of this abstract.

Operations Troubleshooting of Biological Treatment in Refineries and Petrochemical Facilities

View course page →

Instructor(s) / Participants

D'Ann Wilkins - Managing Principal, SLR Consulting
Todd Lusk - Senior Engineer, SLR Consulting

Course Length

4 Hours

Course Description

This course will provide practical information and guidance to attendees on effective operation of their biological treatment units, as well as the available tools to troubleshoot process upsets and employ corrective actions. Attendees of this training session will acquire information and skills necessary to provide proactive responses to abnormal conditions in their biological treatment process, allowing them to avoid upsets leading to effluent noncompliance or recover from them more quickly. Specific subjects covered in this session will include:

Basic Principles of Biological Treatment and Solids Separation
Growth Pressures for Biological Treatment
Monitoring Bioreactor Health
Identifying and Correcting Abnormal Operating Conditions
Troubleshooting with Microscopic Evaluations

This session will also include a real-time demonstration of a microscopic examination on samples of activated sludge. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples from their facilities to be analyzed during the course.
