CONTROL OF JP-4 EMISSIONS FROM UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

The South Coast Air Quality Management District, in southern California, is presently requiring controls on underground JP-4 tanks at March, Norton, and George AFB. It is expected that such controls may eventually be required at other Air Force installations. Therefore, an engineering study was undertaken to: (1) review the problem for Southern California and make recommendations where appropriate, and (2) determine the extent of the problem for the USAF as a whole. This report covers the first of these objectives. After visiting the above mentioned Air Force bases, and completing an engineering assessment of potential control strategies, low temperature refrigeration and recovery of condensed JP-4 vapors is recommended as the best control method.
