The Environmental Protection Agency developed regulations to control toxic air emissions from motor vehicles and fuels. EPA promulgated Mobile Source Air Toxics (MSAT) rules in 2001 applicable to gasoline.
The MSAT Phase 2 regulations reduce benzene emissions by controlling the benzene content in gasoline. They were phased-in during 2011 and 2012 for most refineries, and will apply in 2015 and 2016 for small refineries.
AFPM was actively involved with EPA on the MSAT Phases 1 and 2 rulemakings to ensure that the regulations do not require unwarranted restrictions that add unnecessary costs, impact overall supply, or place additional strain on the U.S. fuel production and distribution system.
