Assessment Topic

National emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) are promulgated for the gasoline distribution industry under authority of Section 112(d) of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990. This background information document provides technical information and analyses used in the development of the final NESHAP and Agency responses to public comments on the proposed rule. The alternatives analyzed are to limit emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from existing and new Stage I gasoline distribution facilities. Gasoline vapor emissions contain about ten of the listed HAPs. Stage I sources include bulk gasoline terminals and plants, pipeline facilities, and underground storage tanks at service stations. Emissions of HAP's from these facilities occur during gasoline tank truck and railcar loading, gasoline storage, and from vapor leaks from tank trucks, pumps, valves, flanges and other euipment in gasoline service.
