The INEOS Neville Plant is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is known for manufacturing olefins and polypropylene. Since it is a manufacturing plant producing many kinds of wastes including chemical spills and toxic waste. The amount of pollutants released into the nearby Ohio river is harmful to the aquatic environment. Incorrect disposal of toxic waste is one of the most significant causes of the numerous types of pollutants resulting from this plant. Correct disposal of toxic waste includes dumping all this waste into a landfill which protects groundwater and surface water. Such disposal is recommended by the EPA and based on the prediction the SWSS could be a viable solution. Solidification and Stabilization refer to a method of cleanup that slows the release of chemicals from waste in this case which may include ammonia and sulfur dioxide and nitrogen. Based on all these factors, our prediction is that this manufacturing issue of environmental pollution will not come to a fix, even with the wastewater treatment plant nearby.
