  • Proposed Petroleum Refinery Sector Risk and Technology Review and New Source Performance Standards
    June 30, 2014 - EPA published in the Federal Register a proposed rule with additional emission control requirements for storage tanks, flares and coking units at petroleum refineries. EPA is also proposing to require monitoring of air concentrations at the fenceline of refinery facilities to ensure proposed standards are being met and that neighboring communities are not being exposed to unintended emissions.
