Austin Industrial’s refinery work aims to lower the sulfur content in diesel fuels and produce cleaner-burning gasoline. Both new and revamped gas facilities are designed to meet stringent emission standards, use renewable resources, reduce oil consumption, ensure proper handling and disposal of materials, and use preventive maintenance to meet Austin’s zero-emissions standard. Austin Industrial is also steadfast in its approach for leak-free start-ups of plant operations on turnaround and outage contracts.
