  • Except in specified circumstances, fugitive emissions of VOCs are not considered in determining whether a facility is a major source subject to the PSD permitting program. Violations of the permitting program may result in substantial fines and thus emitters charged with violating PSD permit requirements have a strong incentive to challenge the identification of their sites as major sources. Such a challenge will be greatly bolstered by identifying at least some of the emissions upon which the designation is based as fugitive. Developing persuasive, admissible evidence is necessary to prove the unreasonableness of collecting those emissions.
  • To evaluate and select an appropriate test procedure and regulatory approach that would include a reliable test method to determine the leak-tightness of a tank on a gasoline delivery truck and a quick leak-tightness monitoring technique as an enforcement tool, field tests of nine candidate methods were conducted for the EPA in Los Angeles, California, at bottom and top loading terminals in which over 200 tank loadings were monitored over ten days. For a performance or compliance test, the static pressure/vacuum test and the volume leakage tests were considered accurated, repeatable, and reliable. For a monitoring procedure, the explosimeter, bagmore » capture, and ''quick''-pressure-decay test methods showed promise. Descriptions of each test including those not found acceptable, and of the field test program are given, and the effectiveness of annual pressure/vacuum tests, the effects of pressure in delivery tanks during loading, and the importance of degassing tanks prior to the pressure/vacuum certification test are discussed.« less
  • Fugitive volatile organic compound emissions from chemical processing equipment are regulated either directly or indirectly under Federal and State laws. To respond to the various provisions of these regulations requires the quantification of fugitive emissions from process equipment. This paper examines the sampling analytical procedures and instrumentation available to estimate fugitive organic compound emissions from process equipment such as valves, pump and compressor seals, flanges, pressure relief devices and other similar process equipment. This paper considers five areas that must be addressed when developing a scientifically valid and representative sampling program to ascertain a reliable fugitive emission estimate for amore » chemical processing facility.« less
  • This presentation discusses several fugitive emission measurement techniques that are currently being used by industry. Methods to count components, quality control issues, types of screening instruments used and measurement methodology are addressed. Both screening methods are bagging methods are discussed. Certain innovations in measurement methods are identified.
