GALENA PARK – At the CIP meeting held last week at the Baggett Center, attendees learned about Environmental Controls at a typical Gulf Coast refinery or plant.

They also heard from a representative of SunEdison Pasadena, Erik Pitoniak, that his company was “starting the process of de-inventorying the facility” with the goal of shutting down now, and able to restart in the future. Pitoniak indicated that long term plans were being evaluated.

Other speakers, who detailed steps in their environmental programs, included Roel Munoz of LyondellBasell, and Tony Bundick of Kinder Morgan. A plant safety program was presented by a representative from Shell Lubricants. Shell has 180 employees at their facility on Clinton Drive in Galena Park.
