Gasoline Dispensing Facilities - Subpart CCCCCC
.


Applicability:Subpart CCCCCC applies to gas dispensing facilities, such as retail gas stations, that are area sources* of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). This includes sources adding gasoline to fuel tanks of motor vehicles, nonroad engines, and nonroad vehicles. These facilities include, but are not limited to, facilities that dispense gasoline into on- and off-road, street, or highway motor vehicles, lawn equipment, boats, test engines, landscaping equipment, generators, pumps, and other gasoline-fueled engines and equipment.

*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.
Rules apply to small, area sources? Yes
