The report gives results of a project to determine the technical and economic feasibility of using flexible plastic membranes to control emissions from gasoline storage tanks. The emission rates and the expected life of the membranes were to be established. A demonstration pilot unit was built and operated. The emission rates were determined, as well as the life expectancy of the membranes. The results indicate that emission control of 99-plus percent, compared to uncontrolled tanks, can be achieved readily, and that the life expectancy of the membranes is in the order of 20 years of continuous service. The estimated installed cost of these devices for commercial application is very competitive with conventionally used floating roofs.
