EMA Bulk Plant Vapor Recovery Survey

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing to require vapor balance balancing equipment installed at bulk plant facilities with gasoline design capacity throughput of 4,000 gallons or more per day.

The vapor balancing equipment would be required for tanks, loading racks and cargo tank vehicles loading and unloading at these facilities.

EPA currently defines a bulk gasoline plant as any gasoline storage and distribution facility that receives gasoline by pipeline, ship or barge, or cargo tank, and subsequently loads the gasoline into gasoline cargo tanks for transport to gasoline dispensing facilities and/or ultimate purchasers with a gasoline throughput of less than 20,000 gallons per day.

EMA believes these proposed rules could have a significant regulatory and cost impact on bulk plant operators.

Your answers to the following questions will provide EMA with the information it needs to oppose EPA’s proposed rule. Time is of the essence.

EMA must respond to EPA’s proposal by September 12, 2022.
