Background information on miscellaneous sources of hydrocarbons in the petroleum refineries is summarized. The information is used to estimate the expected atmospheric emission reduction of potential new source performance standards (NSPS) for the petroleum refining industry. Miscellaneous sources of emissions included in the study were pipeline valves and flanges, pressure relief valves, blowdown systems, pump and compressor seals, and process drains. Additionally, the background information includes a general review of the petroleum refining industry, a discussion of pertinent emission control methods, and a summary of pertinent available air pollution regulations. New source performance standards requiring application of best available control technology will result in an estimated 1985 hydrocarbon emission level of 750 Gg/yr, a reduction of 67% from 1985 emissions estimates for a condition of no controls and a reduction of 41% from 1985 emissions estimated under application of existing state regulations to both new and existing sources.
