Environmental Rules and Regulations for Storage Tanks in Refineries, Chemical Plants, and Terminals:

TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) requires storage tanks to route vapors through a control device with a minimum 90% control efficiency before atmospheric release (Reg. V, 115.541)

TCEQ requires a minimum 2 volume sweep of tank vapor space and reduction of tank vapor concentration to 34,000 ppmv (or 50% LEL) measured as methane. Many MSS permits call for more strict limits; e.g., 10% LEL with 98% efficiency.

NESHAP and OSHA have strict limits on human exposure to hazardous air pollutants

How This Affects You:

These laws mean that you must maintain certain levels of safety and air quality when emptying or cleaning tanks containing volatile organic chemicals (VOCís). The vapors left inside the tanks are dangerous and very hazardous to peopleís health. Therefore, proper degassing measures must be taken.
