This publication supersedes the Guidelines for the design, installation and operation of petrol vapour emission controls at distribution terminals (4th edition), published October 2014.

This publication has been prepared by the Vapour Recovery Working Group of the EI’s Distribution and Marketing Committee.

EU Directive 94/63/EC, and now also under the BAT conclusions for the refining of mineral oil and gas under Directive 2010/75/EU places controls on volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions resulting from the storage of petrol and its distribution from terminals to filling stations. The revision of the guidelines has been undertaken to incorporate good practice learnt during the implementation of EU Directive 94/63/EC, both in the UK, and elsewhere in Europe. Although this publication has been written in response to European legislation, it is the intent that the recommendations are applicable wherever Stage 1 petrol vapour emission controls are to be implemented.
