As a result of these efforts, Esso Sriracha refinery’s emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) have decreased more than 60 percent over the past 10 years.

One example of how we have reduced emissions from our operations involves the implementation of leak detection and repair (LDAR) program, initiatives to maximize fuel gas utilization, and using Low NOx burners.
