    Over the last several years, the U.S. refining and petrochemical industry has undergone a renaissance of sorts. Lower natural gas prices and improved refining margins have been a catalyst for capital improvements at many of the nations’ refineries and chemical plants. Couple that with tighter EPA regulations and it is easy to see why these industries have spent billions over the last several years expanding throughput and investing in cleaner technology. This growth has not slowed down either.
