ARB has developed Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) standards for vapor recovery systems using Aboveground Gasoline Storage Tanks (AST).  On May 2, 2008 the Board approved Certification Procedure CP-206, which describes the procedure for evaluating and certifying ASTs, Standing Loss Control, Phase I and Phase II vapor recovery systems, and components used at Gasoline Dispensing Facilities (GDF). At the same time Test Procedures TP-206.1, TP-206.2, and TP-206.3 were certified in regards to determining compliance with AST EVR system performance standards.



Renewal of Standing Loss Control for Aboveground Storage Tanks (AST) Executive Orders (EO) VR-301-F and VR-302-F, and the Certification of Above Ground Tank (AGT) Vault's Protected AST and Franklin Fueling Systems' (FFS) PV-Zero Pressure Vacuum (P/V) Vent Valve
EOs VR-301-F and VR-302-F have been renewed, extending the certification of listed standing loss control vapor recovery components for an additional four years.  ICI Devoe High Performance Coatings' Devthane 359H and Devthane 379 paints were removed from EO VR-301-F, and the Jensen Precast Armor Cast AST was removed from EO VR-302-F.  The EOs include newly certified AGT Vault's AST and FFS' PV-Zero P/V vent valve.

Letter of Intent: Amending Executive Order (EO) VR-301 To Include Specific Pre-EVR Protected Above Ground Storage Tanks (AST)
ARB staff intends to amend EO VR-301 to include six pre-EVR certified protected ASTs in the list of protected ASTs that meet standing loss control requirements without the addition of a certified coating system.
