Assessment Topic

This report presents results of an in-depth study to assess the effectiveness of marine terminal emission control by modifications in operating procedures as an alternative to vapor recovery systems. The report assesses national marine transportation patterns of crude oil and gasoline, projected patterns through 1985, marine terminal operations, sources of hydrocarbon emissions, operational control technology, estimates of national hydrocarbon losses from marine terminal operations, and potential emission reductions resulting from applying modified operating procedures.
