1.1 Purpose and Scope

Petroleum marketing facilities are subject to increasingly complex and restrictive requirements governing waste management. Regulations at the federal, state, and local level mandate strict control over the handling, treatment, and disposal of waste generated from marketing facilities. This situation can lead to confusion about which waste management practices are acceptable and which should be discontinued.

This document provides specific guidance for managing typical waste streams at petroleum marketing facilities. The waste management options discussed in this document reflect currently acceptable industry practices and are based upon information gathered from representative API member facilities and compliance with applicable environmental regulations. Additional complimentary discussions of marketing waste minimization practices are presented in Chapter 5 of API Publication 302.
