This program developed background information on vacuum distillation and used that information to estimate the expected atmospheric emission reduction of potential new source performance standards (NSPS) for the petroleum refining industry. The potential of available methods to reduce hydrocarbon emissions from refinery vacuum distillation units is discussed. A summary of available air pollution regulations is presented. If no new source performance standards are established, hydrocarbon emissions from vacuum distillation could increase to 12.87 - 14.50 Gg/yr by 1985. Should new performance standards go into effect, these 1985 emissions could be limited to 7.61 Gg/yr.
