Abstract

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for oil refineries in Iran is a major factor to environmental protection in oil industries. Geographical Information System (GIS) was used as a tool for understanding the effects of oil refineries activities on environmental parameters in case of Isfahan oil refinery as a research plan for other oil refineries in Iran. In this case 1024 maps were provided that overlapped on together for final EIA of Isfahan oil refinery plan. This EIA modeling tried to prepare as a plan for EIA to other parts of oil refinery industries in Iran. The Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) methodology has been used as an evaluation tool for EIA plan. The reason was to make the correct possible risk points and areas for each phase of oil refinery activities as construction and operation. All parts of this research were based on field studies, laboratory tests, Geographical Information System (GIS) software, put the information on maps and made raster in maps by GIS and finally EIA plan were prepared for Isfahan oil refinery. The most important part of this study was the EIA plan for oil refinery in Iran that can be use in other oil refineries in Iran as a major EIA plan.
