Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--January 27, 2014, to January 31, 2014

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed biofuels and UST compatibility, mining and minerals operations enforcement, and Superfund liability.

Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

Biofuel Differences are Key to UST Compatibility--As the biofuels market matures, more and more facilities may need to store biofuels, specifically ethanol/ethanol blends and biodiesel, in underground storage tanks. In this article we review issues of equipment compatibility with storing the two fuels.

Compatibility Demonstration is Mandatory for USTs Storing Biofuels--More and more vehicles on the road and at work today can use biofuels like ethanol and ethanol/gasoline blends and biodiesel, increasing the need for underground adequate storage of these fuels. There are some steps you can take to ensure biofuel compatibility with UST systems.

Mining and Mineral Operations Enforcement Update--Mining and mineral processing operations are included in EPA’s ongoing National Enforcement Initiative and should be prepared for inspections during the next few years. In this article we look at the program and status of enforcement activities.

Recap of Mining and Mineral Processing Enforcement in 2013--EPA’s ongoing National Enforcement Initiative in the mining and mineral processing operations sectors has resulted in violations and penalties at sites nationwide. Here we will go over some of the violations cited and resulting mitigation actions and penalties at mining and mineral processing operations in 2013.

Even Death Cannot Mitigate Superfund Liability--Every year the United States pays out millions of dollars to cleanup Superfund sites, some of which take years to complete. So when the EPA gets a chance to recoup some or all of the cleanup funds, you better believe they are going to do just that, even when the responsible party is deceased.
