HOW VAPOR RECOVERY WORKS

Platinum’s Vapor Recovery Units (VRU) are designed to meet the newly established EPA compliance standards by capturing at least 95% of emissions from storage tanks. Vapors captured by a VRU can be recycled and used on-site or transferred to the sales pipeline to increase revenue.

Per EPA regulation “Quad-O”: “Each new, modified or reconstructed storage vessel with 6 or more tons of vapor emissions per year must reduce emissions by 95%.”

There are generally two acceptable methods to achieve compliance with the EPA standard:

     1.  Capturing, compressing and selling the gas with a VRU

     2.  Burning the gas with a flare or combustor and proving ignition

 

Flaring as a main option may not be a long-term strategy due to the strengthening environmental regulations
