CONTROL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND LEAKS FROM GASOLINE TANK TRUCKS AND VAPOR COLLECTION SYSTEMS

This report provides the necessary guidance for development of regulations to limit emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from gasoline tank trucks and vapor collection systems at bulk terminals, bulk plants and service stations. The intent of this guidance is to define leak tight conditions and related test procedures for vapor collection systems and tank trucks while loading and unloading gasoline at these facilities. The control approach described in this document is improved maintenance and would be enforced through the surveillance and periodic testing of leak points. This guidance includes a recommended regulation and testing procedures.
