The horrendous scenes in West Java, Indonesia of an oil refinery explosion and fire have reignited discussions over safety at these facilities as well as the effect on local residents health who quite often live on or around the fenceline of these facilities.

In a recent study by Williams et al (2020) it was demonstrated that proximity to an oil refinery was associated with a statistically significant increased risk of incident cancer diagnosis across all cancer types…studies such as these highlight the importance of understanding the gases, particularly benzene, that are being emitted from these sites and how they are effecting the air quality around them.

Once they are turned back on there is a risk of undesirable gases being emitted into the surrounding neighbourhoods.

In this video our DV3000 is being used in a rapid response vehicle to understand if there is any potential hazard to local residents around these facilities.
