This study provides an estimate of 1976 nationwide hydrocarbon emissions from storage of petroleum liquids in existing tanks with a capacity greater than 150,000 liters. Numbers and types of existing tanks were determined to estimate these emissions by geographical location, industry sector, and volatility class of the stored products. Projections of emissions are made for 1980 and 1985 assuming only newly constructed tanks meet the requirements of the New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) for the storage of petroleum liquids and then assuming existing fixed roof tanks storing products with a volatility greater than 10.5 kPa are retrofitted with internal floating covers. Other options such as the use of vapor recovery systems for fixed roof tanks and double seals on external floating roof tanks were considered beyond the scope of the study. A nationwide estimate of 1976 emissions by petroleum liquid type stored is presented.
