Neste Oil is building a system for recovering emissions released when loading ships at the harbor of its Porvoo refinery. The system will recover the majority of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released into the atmosphere when loading gasoline.
The new facility will reduce the refinery’s overall hydrocarbon emissions significantly as gasoline loading at the refinery’s harbor are the site’s single largest source of VOC emissions.
“Thanks to the new system, we will be able to further reduce our environment footprint and also ensure that harbor personnel benefit from a cleaner working environment,” says Niko Ristikankare, Neste Oil’s Vice President, Shipping and Terminals.
