Fertilizer Canada Response – A proposed approach to control volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions from the storage and loading of petroleum liquids

Many of Fertilizer Canada’s member companies own and operate facilities and equipment that could be captured under the proposed regulatory approach. Our industry supports policy that achieves high standards for environmental sustainability while maintaining our competitiveness. We recognize that the proposed approach is an important step toward strengthening environmental protection and mitigating emissions of VOCs. However, based on the information available, we have noted several points that require clarification and have outlined several recommendations below. We would like to note that these are preliminary recommendations based on our current understanding of the regulation, and that we may have additional comments during future consultations depending upon the information provided.
