[Webinar] Evolving Guidance for Estimating Storage Tank Emissions


On 25 July 2018, the US EPA proposed changes to AP-42 Chapter 7 to address emissions from tank cleaning events. Other revisions include proposed changes to the temperature equations, which would impact estimated emissions for all tanks regardless of tank type, and guidance for estimating emissions from tanks storing hot stocks, taking into account different configurations of insulation. The greatest impact of these revisions for some users will be the upward revision to the default vapor pressure for No. 6 Oil.

This webinar will discuss the proposed changes in detail and provide a software solution that will address the deficiencies of Tanks 4.09D. TankESP is a tank emissions calculation software product suite that uses the emission estimation procedures from Chapter 7. It is widely regarded as the most accurate tank emission calculation tool on the market because it was designed by Rob Ferry, one of the authors of AP-42 Chapter 7.1 and American Petroleum Institute (API) documents 19.1, 19.2 and 19.4.
