EPA on Emission Standards for Storage Vessel and Transfer Operations, Equipment Leaks, and Closed Vent Systems and Control Devices

Posted in on Thu, Jul 12, 2012

On March 26, 2012, the EPA proposed the National Uniform Emission Standards for Storage Vessels and Transfer Operations, Equipment Leaks, and Closed Vent Systems and Control Devices (Uniform Standards). The EPA is extending the deadline for written comments on the proposed amendments by 90 days. The EPA received requests for this extension from the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the American Chemistry Council (ACC). API and ACC each requested an extension in order to fully evaluate the potential impact of the Uniform Standards on subparts applicable to the refining and chemical industries, respectively. Comments are due September 24, 2012.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-06-18/html/2012-14784.htm
