Gasoline Distribution Bulk Terminals, Bulk Plants & Pipeline Facilities -  Subpart BBBBBB

Applicability: eCFR Subpart BBBBBB [ecfr.gov]

Subpart BBBBBB applies to bulk gasoline terminals, pipeline breakout stations, pipeline pumping stations, and bulk gasoline plants that are area sources* of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). HAPs generally found in gasoline vapors include benzene, ethylbenzene, hexane, toluene, xylenes, isooctane, naphthalene, cumene, and methyl tert-butyl ether.

Not subject to this rule: Gas Dispensing Facilities, such as retail gas stations, that are subject to 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart CCCCCC; and bulk gasoline terminals and pipeline breakout stations that are subject to the control requirements of 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart R (Gasoline Distribution, Stage I).


As of May 17, 2009, Gasoline Distribution Facilities (bulk terminals/plants/pipelines) who are subject to Subpart BBBBBB, and have a maximum design capacity larger than 20,000 gallons per day may take operational limits if their actual daily throughput is always less than 20,000 gallons per day. Please consult the Notice of Intent information posted in the Resources section of this page.
*An area source of HAP has the potential to emit <10 tons per year (tpy) of a single HAP or <25 tpy of a combination of HAPs.
