"The objective of the program was to demonstrate a safe cost-effective way to control gasoline vapors emitted during barge loading. Refrigeration, carbon adsorption, oil absorption, and incineration were reviewed in terms of their safety, economics, and performance. Two barge terminals were used as the design basis for extending their existing truck loading vapor control systems (oil absorption and incineration) to include the barge loading facilities. Although fabrication drawings were prepared for both terminals, the barge vapor collection system was installed only at the terminal using incineration. Arrangements were also made to lease a barge with vapor collection piping and add additional equipment to reduce the likelihood of barge explosion or overfill. However, before start-up of the demonstration, the program was curtailed. The system is still in place and could be considered for future field demonstrations."
