Control Status and Strategy of VOCs from Gasoline Filling Stations in China


Article Preview

Tightness, dynamic back pressure and air to liquid volume ratio (A/L) of vapor recovery system of gasoline filling stations were detected, VOCs was analyzed by GC, in-station diagnostic operation status was inspected by site investigation. The results denoted that the modification of gasoline filling stations was not complete and the installed vapor recovery systems didn’t operate under normal state. Insufficient understanding on vapor recovery control, poor management and unsuitable regulations resulted in these problems. Some solutions such as enhancing the propaganda, making preferential policies, holding training for the connected staffs, maintenance in time, and revising the unsuitable regulations were proposed. This study has positive significance in promoting vapor recovery control developed in China.
