Along with those problems, due to an oil spill, there is also the increased possibility of a fire, and/or explosion. This can also affect lives of the underwater wildlife. The last con I am going to present in this paper is the risk to workers in this industry. Accidents in this industry are very possible, and they do occur. They are extremely dangerous, and many people have been injured and some killed from this line of work.
Superfund can be regarded a programme of the federal government that is put in place to ensure that there is cleanup of toxic or hazardous waste in sites that is getting out of control in the nation. Superfund is a programme aimed at cleaning up all accidentally spilled or abandoned and or illegal dumped waste that are considered hazardous or harmful which or may likely cause threat to the well of human or the environment and its ecosystem. Superfund is a vital government programme which its effort is to sanitize lands in the united state contaminated by various wastes that are hazardous. (US EPA, 1994). In actualizing this mission, the environmental protection agency is to oversee and work in partnership with the communities, scientists,
The booms and skimmers, though, tended to get clogged by the thick oil. Chemical cleanup was also given a trial run by the U.S. Coast Guard. However, the current of the water was not enough to evenly distribute the dispersants that were supposed to break down the oil and it only added to the amount of pollutants in the Sound (EPA). It is found in recent studies that on select beaches in the sound are still polluted by large amounts of remaining oil deposits (Liszka 1-30). In the end, the Exxon Valdez oil spill was an expensive disastrous accident that continues to affect the people, company, and environment.
Petroleum refinery effluents (PRE) are wastes originating from industries engaged in refining crude oil and manufacturing lubricants, fuels and petrochemical intermediates. The effluents are composed of oil and grease along with many other toxic organic compounds and are a major source of aquatic environmental pollution. PRE can vary greatly depending on the plant configuration, the type of oil being processed, and operation procedures (Saien J. and Nejati H., 2007). The exact composition cannot be generalised as it depends on the refinery and which units are in operation at any specific time. PRE is often characterized by high concentrations of aliphatic and aromatic petroleum hydrocarbons, which usually have detrimental and harmful effects on plant and aquatic life
However, people have suggested many ideas for possible the outcomes. The first aspect of nuclear winter is the barren wasteland that surrounds the radius of the initial impact. “The Portable Phonograph” paints this wasteland perfectly through the vivid description that was provided. For instance, when describing the craters in the ground, the author wrote, “These pits were such as might have been made by falling meteors… They were the scars of gigantic bombs, their rawness already made a little natural by rain, seed, and time” (Clark, 1941, p. 177). After knowing the sheer power behind nuclear weapons, there is no doubt that the Earth would be quite desolate in a nuclear winter.
Many believe that this is the causation of many earthquakes that have occurred in the last years. Water contaminations are a possible risk of fracking. With all the chemicals used for oil fracking, it could cause harm the human body. Although it provides many jobs and gives us oil and natural gas, there are many factors of fracking that has harmed the environment. Oil fracking, also known as hydraulic fracking or hydrofracking, has been used for roughly 65 years to get natural gas.
It was founded by the SED on February 8, 1950 in order to protect and enforce the interests of the party. Soon enough, the Stasi became known as the Schild und Schwert der Partei (Shield and Sword of the Party) of the SED. Since WWII, Germany has indeed endured many social and political changes; from the division of Berlin and Germany into 4 zones on May 8, 1945 to the formation of the BRD and the DDR in 1949 to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall in 1961 and 1989
Contamination is particularly dangerous for drugs used for injection or for the treatment of open wounds and also intended for prolonged use and/or receiving high doses. To prevent cross contamination, taking into account the conditions of production the following activities should be carried out: • The organization of separate production (industrial premises and sites) for products such as penicillins, live vaccines, biological preparations containing living microorganisms, and some other biological products or the use of closed circuit of production • Installation of air locks, exhaust systems and providing pressure differentials • Reducing the risk of contamination caused by recirculation or
