This quantity deals refineries a pragmatic consultant to imposing environmental administration structures (EMS). the writer, who has applied hundreds and hundreds of winning EMS courses all through North the US, Europe, japanese Europe, Russia and the center East, offers a close clarification of what an EMS is and the way it might gain refinery operations in complying with environmental legislation and enhancing the general potency in their operations.

T h e NS measure for a P2 investment relative to the current situation is calculated by subtracting the LCC of the P2 alternative from the LCC of the current situation, the base case (BC). 5) As long as NS > 0, the investment is considered to be costeffective relative to the current situation. Hence, the requirement Is Compliance Enough? 23 for a financially attractive P2 investment is that its L C C be lower than the LCC of the current situation. For multiple, mutually exclusive P2 alternatives, the alternative with the greatest NS measure is the same alternative that has the lowest LCC.
The number of years allowed for the payback to occur) by choosing a time period that is considerably shorter than the project's intended service period. A drawback with this calculation is that capital replacement costs or increased O M & R costs can occur after the year of payback, and this could cancel out the apparent cost-effectiveness of the investment. The simple payback does not rely on discounted cash flows in the calculation. The SPB also ignores any changes in prices, such as energy, water, and labor escalation prices during the payback period.
In essence, what an EMS challenges an organization to do is continually improve its environmental performance. By continually improving the environmental performance of a facility, even when the improvements are incremental, over time, the performance improves measurably. The continual improvement cycle consist of four basic steps: 1. Plan. 2. Do. 3. Check. 4. Revise. Let us look at Figure 1-1. In the planning stage, • We formulate environmental policy. • We identify environmental compliance needs.
