Regulation 13 Rule 5: Petroleum Refinery Hydrogen Systems

The Air District is developing a new source-specific rule to address emissions of methane and organic compounds in the Bay Area. Draft Regulation 13: Climate Pollutants, Rule 5: Petroleum Refinery Hydrogen Systems (Rule 13-5). Draft Rule 13-5 would limit vented emissions of methane and organic compounds from petroleum refineries’ hydrogen production, hydrogen carrying systems and hydrogen end users such as process units­­­.

 

A workshop to discuss Draft Rule 13-5 will be held on Monday, January 27, 2020 at the Air District's headquarters on Beale Street in San Francisco. Draft rule language and a workshop report are available. Comments on the documents will be accepted in person at the workshop, as well as in writing for a period following the workshop. The deadline for comments will be Friday, February 14, 2020.
