Marine carriers of gasoline and crude oil are the targets of strict new air quality rules that are already in effect in several states and are scheduled to soon take effect in others. The rules mandate that vapors generated during the loading of gasoline and crude oil must be contained rather than vented to the atmosphere. A vapor recovery system in use at Crowley Maritime to comply with the rules is described and the cost of compliance is discussed. Rules covering liquid chemical cargoes other than gasoline and crude oil can be expected in a few years.
