Gasoline Distribution Facilities (Bulk Gasoline Terminals and Pipeline Breakout Stations): National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP)

Rule Summary

Gasoline bulk terminals and pipeline breakout stations transfer and store gasoline (and other petroleum products) as it is distributed from petroleum refineries to service stations and gasoline bulk plants. Air toxics are released from these facilities during gasoline tank truck and rail car loading, gasoline storage, and from vapor leaks from pumps, valves, and other equipment in gasoline service.
