The report gives results of a study of hydrocarbon pollutants from stationary sources. Early in the study, readily available information was assembled on stationary sources of hydrocarbon emissions and effluents. Information was also obtained on process descriptions, operating parameters, current controls, and control problems. As the data base was assembled, the data was divided into major categories for subsequent evaluation. Pollutants from process streams were evaluated along with fugitive emissions associated with equipment leaks (e.g., from pumps, valves, and flanges). Emissions were also included from open sources (e.g., forest fires) and from natural sources (e.g., pine forests). Information in each category was divided into logical classes and grouped for further assessment of emissions and effluents from processes and operations. A list of the emission and effluent rates from the processes and operations studied is in the Appendix. Major emission and effluent sources in each category were identified and assessed as to source controllability. Specific processes and operations representing the greatest potential for the reduction of hydrocarbon emissions and effluents by the application of central technology were selected for further study.
