Benzene Emissions

In 2006, the Energy Resources Conservation Board – ERCB issued Directive 039. This is a revised program to reduce benzene emissions from glycol dehydrators effective since January 1, 2007. Directive 039 has “established mandatory requirements to ensure continued reductions of benzene emissions to reduce potential impact on the public”.

To allow our clients to comply with the Directive 039, Maxxam offers DEOS graph creation as part of our full service commitment to our clients to meet the requirements of the directive. Analysis is required and available for both operating and non-operating dehys. Maxxam has introduced a web-enabled interface which allows our customers to submit information on-line. This controlled environment ensures accuracy, legibility and data quality through validations built into the forms, thus reducing errors and omissions to the lowest possible level.
