Stage 2 Vapour Recovery Venting
With the advent of Stage 2 Vapour Recovery into our industry, we have come up with a range of products to make the Stage 1 and 2 venting process Simple, Compliant and Safe.
The refilling of underground petrol storage tanks and the filling of vehicle fuel tanks lead to the displacement of petrol vapour equal in volume to that of the fuel being transferred. This vapour is released into the atmosphere unless otherwise captured. It contains benzene, xylene, toluene and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which contribute to local, regional and global air pollution.
In late 2009, the Protection of the Environment Operations (Clean Air) Amendment (Vapour Recovery) Regulation 2009 made substantial changes to Section 5 of the Protection of the Environment Operations (Clean Air) Regulation 2002 (the Regulation). The amended Regulation prescribes specific controls to minimise the emission of VOCs from petrol service stations.
