Abstract
On January 5, 1981, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed the national emission standard for fugitive benzene emissions (46 FR 1165) under authority of Section 112 of the Clean Air Act. Fugitive emissions of benzene can be reduced by two types of control techniques: (1) leak detection and repair programs, and (2) equipment design and operational specifications. The leak detection and repair programs consist of monitoring potential fugitive benzene emission sources with the approved portable Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) detection instruments and then repairing or replacing any source determined to be leaking. Fugitive benzene emissions could also be reduced by installing certain control equipment. For example, fugitive emission from pumps occur primarily at the pump seal. The standard requires a combination of monthly monitoring and the installation of specific control equipment to provide the greatest level of control for fugitive benzene emissions.
