Delaware City Refinery Releases Sulfur Dioxide
PBF’s Delaware City Refinery released its second large amount of sulfur dioxide within a week’s time.
There have been troubles with the hydrogen sulfide control system this week with an estimate 248 pounds released before a shutdown of the system.
There was a larger amount released beginning on January of 3-thousand pounds a day.
Officials say that the pollution would continue until the system was fixed.
No additional details were available.
Delaware City can process more than 190-thousand barrels of crude oil a day.
