Photographer's Note

Arpechim Refinery is one of the largest Romanian refineries and one of the largest in Eastern Europe, located in Piteşti, Argeş County, and has both refining and petrochemical capacities. The refinery has two processing modules with a nominal capacity of 6.5 million tonnes/year. Now only one of the two modules is operating with a capacity of 3.5 million tonnes/year or 70,000 bbl/d (11,000 m³/d). The facility is connected by pipeline to the oil fields in the Oltenia Region and to the Port of Constanţa. The refinery produces around 60% of all the bitumen used in Romania.

But Petrom(the country's largest oil company Petrom (SNP.RO)) does not plan to invest in upgrades at Arpechim, but wants to continue to operate the refinery. And above the refinery never you will see a clear sky,the pollution is maximum there.It is the pollution clouds are like an intermediate level between sun and earth ...
