Abstract

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) modeling of oil refineries in Iran is a useful tool for environmental protection in oil industry in Iran especially for Isfahan oil refinery and its sensitive environment. In this research Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) has been used as a tool for oil refineries EIA modeling. During the research process 1028 maps were provided that overlap on together for prepare the final EIA modeling in case of Isfahan oil refinery. In fact the primary target of ERA understands the potential risks and possible effects on the environmental parameters. This view can use in construction and operation of each oil refineries to make at least possible risks effects on environment. The most important part of this modeling is all major environmental parameters and oil refinery project with their risks have been considered in this research. All EIA studies based on field studies, laboratory experiments, find the most effective points, find the most effective areas, using Geographical Information System (GIS), make raster on maps and overlap on together to find out the EIA oil refinery modeling of oil refinery in case of Isfahan oil refinery to make this model as a tool for other EIA oil refineries in Iran.
