Clean Design Features
BORL has incorporated state of the art environmental protection measures in the design of facilities. Environmental protection in the refinery is achieved through the use of latest technologies and strict monitoring and control.
  • High efficiency Low NOx burners in fired heaters.
  • Low sulfur fuels to minimize the SO2 emissions. 
  • High stacks in all furnaces for adequate dispersal of flue gas.
Continuous emission monitoring systems
  • Continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) for stacks
  • Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU) integrated with Tail Gas Treatment Unit (TGTU).
Dust control system in the Captive Power Plant
  • Dust control system in the Captive Power Plant (CPP).
  • Floating roof tanks with double seals.
  • Nitrogen blanketed Cone and /Dome roof tanks 
  • Double Mechanical Seals in pumps.
  • Close Blow-Down (CBD) system.
  • VOC collection & treatment system in Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP).

  • Bottom loading provision for 20% road tank lorries.
  • Leak detection and Repair (LDAR) program.
  • State-of-art Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) for maximized recycle of waste water.
  • Smokeless elevated flare
