BREATHING SPACE. PASSAGE TO CLEANER SEAS. STRIKING A BALANCE
In an attempt to publicize its efforts at reducing its impact on the environment, the Exxon Corporation has published several booklets detailing its programs of environmental conservation. The two main contributors to air pollution with which Exxon is here concerned are sulfur dioxide and automobile exhaust gases. Sulfur dioxide is produced by burning fuel oil with a high sulfur content. Various attempts at desulfurization such as vacuum gas oil desulfurization and flexicoking, are discussed. Mention is made of developing cleaner burning coal, and of tests which are being conducted to continue to reduce pollution from automobile exhaust.
