Fueling Station Air Quality Permit Exemption

Archived: 08/01/2014

Owners and operators of equipment used exclusively to store and dispense motor fuels, including alternative fuels, into motor vehicles are automatically permitted by rule so long as their stations meet emissions limits set by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), and are therefore exempt from registering or paying for an air pollution permit. While TCEQ does not require station owners and operators to keep any records, it may request supporting information at any time. (Reference Texas Administrative Code 30.106.4 and 30.106.412)
