Key words: Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA), Tehran oil refinery, Geographical Information System (GIS), Iran.


In this research presented in each of the parameters in the model, such as land, soil, vegetation, lithology, protected areas, climate and water flow rates examined separately. The objective of the proposed model is based on data classification and analysis of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of oil refinery, sum the development zones map, GIS data and rate of effects of oil refinery on environment. The evaluation method was Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) helped to find the possible risk points and zones for Tehran oil refinery. The Geographical Information System (GIS) were used to provide the EIA maps of Tehran oil refinery. In this research EIA oil refinery found that can use in other EIA oil refineries plan in Iran. The 512 maps were provided and all of them were overlapped on together to achieve the final EIA plan. All studies based on the field studies, laboratory experiments, put data in GIS software, make raster for each part of information and find the EIA map. This EIA oil refinery plan can use as a tool for EIA model of other parts of oil refineries in Iran. Tehran oil refinery has sensitive environment and by using this model can achieve to appropriate EIA plan for environmental protection.
