Edward Martinez of Zia Environmental Engineers & Consultants talks about Meridian’s Davis Refinery and how it will be the first of its kind. Martinez discusses the control technology and how a Smart LDAR program will be used to monitor fugitive emissions throughout the plant. In addition, the company has designed major aspects of the Davis refinery systems to incorporate vapor capture to essentially eliminate major fugitive emissions from the plant. The combination of these efforts resulted in the ability to pursue permitting of this facility as a synthetic minor source. These methods and calculations have been confirmed by both engineering and permitting teams responsible for making the Davis Refinery an operational reality.
