The report summarizes a study of continuous emission monitors for measuring benzene emissions from gasoline bulk storage terminals. The work was performed for the Quality Assurance Division, Source Branch, of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency by Pacific Environmental Services under Contract No. 68-02-3997, Task 33. The Environmental Protection Agency is considering regulating the emissions of benzene from bulk storage of gasoline products and is likely to require data regarding benzene emissions. The evaluation of continuous emission monitors for benzene is a necessary part of the overall effort. The study was performed in three phases: a literature review, a laboratory evaluation, and a field evaluation. The study objectives were to determine the commercial availability of continuous monitors for benzene and the reported performance of these units, evaluate their suitability for measuring benzene in gasoline vapors, and determine their applicability to the source category.
