  • Controlling Fugitive Emissions, Part 2: Permanent Total Enclosure

    Fugitive emissions are the uncontrolled release of gases into the atmosphere. This is something that occurs regularly; in fact, it often happens when we fill our cars' gas tanks. The air being displaced inside the gas tank when it is being filled causes gasoline vapor emissions (hydrocarbons) to exit into the atmosphere in an ...

  • Does emissions trading lead to air pollution hot spots? Evidence from an urban ozone control programme

    This study is an empirical investigation into the contentious issue of possible sub-area hot spots caused by emissions trading in a pioneering application of a cap-and-trade market approach to reducing aggregate stationary-source volatile organic compound emissions in the Chicago severe ozone non-attainment region. When sub-areas are defined as populated zip codes, 89 out of 95 affected codes ...

It also specifies quarterly checks of the x-ray fluorescence calibration and of the volume measurement calibration. Finally procedure Z requires that the entire XRF multi metal ...

  • EPA proposes new greenhouse gas emission standard under the Clean Air Act

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently proposed a new GHG emissions program designed to further regulate the amount of greenhouse gas produced in the US. The proposed Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Title V Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule would require large facilities to obtain operating permits for their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Large facilities are defined as ...
