Goal 2 | VOC emissions
Some of the products we store are classified as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which means that they easily evaporate at ambient temperature and can be hazardous for people and the environment. Sources of VOC emissions include storage tank breathing losses from routine operations and venting, and emissions from loading and cleaning tanks. We recognize that the amount of VOC emissions fluctuates as it is strongly dependent on the type of products we store, the number of tank cleaning activities and roof landings, outside temperature, etc. Our goal is to implement best practice engineering standards and improve operational efficiency, reducing VOC emissions to as low as reasonably practicable.
