Use of Open Path UV-DOAS as an Alternative Method to Meet Fenceline Monitoring Provisions for Federal Benzene Monitoring Rule - Case Study

Don Gamiles - Argos Scientific Inc.

Description

On December 1, 2015 the EPA finalized the Risk and Technology Review for petroleum refineries. Among other things, the finalized rule requires petroleum refineries to conduct fence-line monitoring on a continuous basis. Benzene is the target compound, and an annual average, action level of 9 µg/m3 is established, triggering a refinery lead root cause analysis and corrective action. The fence-line monitoring provisions found in 40 CFR 63.658 describe the use of a network of passive diffusive tube samplers placed along the refinery’s boundary as the primary method for detecting fugitive emissions of benzene. The fence-line monitoring provisions allow a refinery owner or operator to submit a request for an alternative test method, such as open-path instrumentation. The use of this type of technology presents the opportunity to meet the requirements of the rule in a way that is more simplified and cost effective, while offering advantages in terms of potentially identifying and eliminating data points corresponding to outside emission sources. A field validation study has been conducted using latest generation, open-path UV-DOAS technology manufactured by Argos Scientific Inc., to detect benzene at a refinery fence-line on a continuous basis. The study includes a case study on the lessons learned in developing this program.

New Applications in Fenceline Monitoring

Jesse Miller - CAMSCO

Description

Fenceline Monitoring via passive samplers is a robust, highly sensitive and accurate monitoring technique. While Fenceline Monitoring is best known for Method 325 (Refinery Fenceline Monitoring), this technology is now used in a wide variety of new monitoring applications. We will discuss the history, equipment used (Thermal Desorption, Sampling or Sorbent Tubes) as well as current real-world scenarios, other than refineries, utilizing Fenceline Monitoring.

Avoiding Under-Reporting and Over-Reporting of Fenceline Plant Emissions

James Shinkle - Optical Scientific

Description

Using a point measurement wind sensor for fenceline applications will result in under or over-estimating large body wind movement from your plant. OSI’s Long-baseline Optical Anemometer provides path-averaged wind data to give you an honest and accurate picture of plant emissions and can be a valuable tool in the case of an accidental release.
