DEP Publishes Notice Of Transition Period To Meeting 500 PPM July 1 Heating Oil Sulfur Limit
The PPA met with the Department of Environmental Protection in April to address the unprecedented heating oil inventories remaining from an unusually warm winter and the difficulty of meeting the 500 ppm standard on July 1. The DEP responded by publishing a notice to temporarily extend enforcement of the 500 ppm standard for No. 2 heating oil stored by a distributor or retail outlet to December 31 instead of the initially scheduled deadline. Special thanks to the Heating Fuels Chair Bruce Spiridonoff (Tevis Energy) and Quincy Longacre (Buckeye Energy Services LLC) who accompanied John Kulik in meeting with the DEP.
