STI is supporting multiple Bay Area refineries to address the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s (BAAQMD) Regulation 12, Rule 15, which requires real-time monitoring and reporting of toxic pollutants using open-path instrument technology along refinery fencelines.
To address the new rule, STI developed draft monitoring plans to cover each refinery’s fencelines, and will install and operate the monitoring networks and necessary equipment. STI will submit the collected data to the clients and BAAQMD. A data-display website will be developed for each refinery to provide the nearby public with up-to-date air quality information.
