Desching – a district of the market town of Kösching in the district of Eichstätt – is located adjacent to the Lenting tank farm.
In order to maintain good contact with the adjoining neighbours and to regularly exchange information on current topics, some residents accepted the invitation to the tank farm on Monday (19 July 2021). Harald Weber (Head of TA-Maintenance Germany) began by briefly introducing TAL to the interested visitors and then went into more detail about the numerous measures the company takes to reduce odour emissions during planned work and plant operation. These include:
- Installation of additional seals during revisions of the crude oil tanks
- Use of mobile, TÜV-certified combustion chambers
- Enclosure of pig traps, use of modern extraction systems
- Control by electronic noses (E-Noses) in the tank farm as well as in two neighbouring locations
Finally, there was a short tour of the tank farm to see the tanks and the pig trap.
